Thoughts You Have On Your First Day Of Work

Starting a new job is tough.

Thoughts You Have On Your First Day Of Work

It's the beginning of summer. For many young college students like yourself, this means baseball games, road trips, new jobs and summer internships. With a heart full of excitement and a mind full of anxiety, here are 35 actual thoughts I had on my first day.

OK, here we go, what to wear.

I want to look like I’m an adult and professional.

Dress pants and a button down. This seems good.

Is this trying too hard?

Probably, but I don’t have time to change now.

OK, let’s try not to get lost.

Which train is the right train?!

Somebody help!

Should I use this emergency button…?

“Hi…I don’t know where I’m going.”

OK, I’m at the address… where is the building?

*Walks around in a circle using Google maps*

Phew, found it.

And I have 10 minutes to spare.

OK, let’s do this.

*Opens the door*

OK, be cool, be cool.

And I just made a fool of myself looking for the trash can.

Boss seems chill. And there’s a puppy.

Supervisor seems cool.

She wants me to do what?

I’ve never done that before.

It’s OK, you’ll learn. That’s the point.

I can do this. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.

Wait, there’s only one thing I need to fix?

OK, next task.

*Four hours later*


They see me, do their der der der der der der...

I think this is how I’m supposed to do this….but I’m a little afraid to ask.

OK... let’s see...

Right. Thank you, Jesus.

OK, I’m getting the hang of this.

Check me out!

Time to head home feeling like a champ!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
