Needless to say, I am excited yet totally freaking out with nerves *L0L* I will be at Random House Canada with the publicity department. Can you believe my luck?
I plan to write about it after I am done for the day, so stay tuned…
I planned to reach Random House fifteen minutes early, but I just barely made it on time. The buses were so crowded that three passed by before I could get on one, and after transferring to the streetcar we were rerouted due to an accident.
Once I arrived at Random House I was shown to my very own cubicle, then given a tour. The layout is a little confusing at first, but I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it. I already know the way from my “office” to the copy room very well! *L0L*
I basically spent the morning with my boss learning how to do some things, had lunch in a courtyard I found by accident, and then my computer was set up with log-ins by the time I returned. The afternoon was spent going through emails, filling out requests, etc. I found out that I may be helping with an event this month, and doing more on my own later, so that should be a lot of fun!
I learned that my internship will be until the end of July plus, other than this week and maybe next week, we’ll be doing “summer hours”. This means that I will get Friday afternoons off! And, since Lucia asked: Yes, I really lucked out because I will get a small honourarium when I complete the three-month term.
Everyone I’ve met thus far seems really nice and I think I will enjoy working with them.
