Yesterday was my first day and I am delighted. I would like to spend free time here, but look forward to more than everyday life, or is it a paradise for everyday life? If I was on vacation here, I would lie on the beach all the time. Instead of holiday, now I work on the beach so I’m wondering is this really true or am I dreaming?
Dreams can and must be. In the past I thought that dreams are dreams and they can be dreamed of, but they never meet the reality. But now it feels like living a dream, although I would have never thought that I would end up in the Caribbean, and besides everything, into a surfing school. It feels like this is not true, although it is a little bit too much to start believing that it is true. In my apartment I write a blog and see how the palm trees swing in the wind on my balcony, this is the unrepeatable beauty.
The first working day started with a little bit of confusion. I got tasks that I was not immediately aware of, a little time lost, panic and pressure while I tried to assemble myself. As I was a student working for the first day, I could not automatically complete everything. Besides, in Finland we are doing things in a bit different way. For a while I pulled myself back together and thought I’d swallow Annika’s pride and try to know but knowing nothing.
The girl who is working on the side of the restaurant came to tell me not to worry and she encouraged me to do my job well and with dignity. On her first day, she told she was crying. I thought in my mind what soup I put myself in? After a while, I began to understand what I was supposed to do and I worked and in the end of the day my boss came to me with an encouraging feedback.
So this is how my first day at work went and everything ended well. Eight hours went by and I learned a lot, made price comparisons from other companies and invented new product ideas. On days when we do not teach surfing, we offer our customers trips for snorkeling, riding, rock climbing and everything possible.
My first day of work was good and I even continued working at home and wrote a blog. My brain hardly ever had to think so much, HAH: D
All the best to you, my beloved Finland, I write after I have slightly beacon lived this dream more
P.S. I give the boss Finland present Sibelius cd, Iittala candle cups, chocolate and Finnish flag and of course GRADIA fabric bag
