I've been here close to 2 weeks now and I'm happy to say I've fulfilled my goal of finding a job.

It all started when my friend, FadeAway told me about an opening in his department. After talking to his supervisor, she gave the green light for me to apply. Since it's only a temporary position, so there was no need to conduct an interview. All I did was to drop by the agency, complete the relevant paperwork and take a drug test.

Anyway, today was my first day at a biotechnology corporation as a cell product technician. And to be honest, I was as lost as a sheep. Most of the time I was with FadeAway and my other friend, Ion, trying to learn as much as I could without losing my way around the labs.

Not long after I had started though, our supervisor informed us of a meeting at 9am, which turned out to be a review meeting for our department's performance in the past year. There were lots of doughnuts, coffee and orange juice, which I gladly filled my empty stomach with.

What I found out from the meeting was that our corporation is the top in the market of competent cells; the product that our department develops. And this market isn't just the American market, but the global market. In my opinion, that's a pretty cool statistic to have.

I'm looking forward to working at this corporation. From what I heard from Ion, they play football Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at the nice lawn grass field right next to our building.

FadeAway told me that usually leave slightly early because once our projects are done, there's literally nothing to do. And since us temporary staff don't need to log in and out, so long as no one looks for us, we're good.

For now though, I shall end here as I'll be starting work at 6am tomorrow. It's time to get some sleep.
