Never ever in my life have I so looked forward to a weekend as this one. As it has less to do with festival of Holi and more with the grinding work schedule I have been following.
For past one year my mornings begin not before 10 AM (8 if I am forced to get up early) and now at 8AM, im out of my house braving the morning traffic to reach my office and leave not before 7 or even 8 PM (official time is 6PM).
1st thing I noticed on entering the cubicle sea were the almost antique machines. They horrified me more coz my last company being a start up had dazzlingly new laptops and desktops. This one being an established company had machines from the time when they got started. 😀
My so called office honeymoon period (where you just relax and observe and work without anyone blaming you for any goof ups coz you are new) lasted all of 4 hours. Then I was handed over a client to plan a campaign for and the drill began.
Everyone is so busy here as if they are runnin a country instead of a campaign. I have hardly spoken to anyone in my team for anything other than work. Lets hope it changes for better soon.
But even after all this, I am glad im here. There is so much to learn! I feel like a frog who came out of the well only to realize there is still so much of the world.
A perfect end to my 1st working week in a year is HOLI!!!!
WISHING YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY AND COLORFUL HOLI 🙂 🙂
