Day 1: QUESTIONS HERE AND THERE

Things didn’t turn the way I expected. It was fun sorting files, escorting visitors, serving them coffee, and answering the unending phone calls for different departments.
Since I am not familiar using intercom to transfer and divert calls I hang up on the first five callers, I think! But then I got myself used to it—I can now handle messages and relay them to my superiors effectively.  
To know everyone at the office personally is rather impossible since there is a limited chance of talking to each other. Besides, the only reason I talk to them is to whenever I needed some clarification and confirmation regarding the tasks assigned to me. Every so often, I was hesitant to approach them in the thought that I might interrupt and annoyed them—that I don’t want to happen! I know how it feels to have somebody beside me who ask a lot when in fact the answer is just there. Stupid questions deserve stupid answers! But then, since I’m a newbie, I rather give the impression of being stupid asking those questions to clarify than pretending I know everything and not clarifying at all. I think it will make the situation worst if I do things on my own without their supervision during the first day. I’m still lucky my boss is very patient and calm in answering my questions.
I don’t think I did well on my first day but I promised myself to make some rooms for improvement. I can’t wait to work on my own. Wish me luck for tomorrow’s adventure!
