You might choke or perhaps laugh till your lungs go kaboom, but I can say with absolute certainty that Kate Middleton-Prince William and I have something in common. *Giggles in excitement* The two were on their first ever trip to India and I just got done with my first day at work. Get it? Get it? First for both of us!! *Okay, fine. I know my ‘first’ isn’t going make international news, but it’s still something… at least in my world*
As I readied myself for my first day at work (translation: kicked myself out of the bed as I hit the snooze for the 100th time), I was not only excited but also a LOT nervous, a feeling that has always been with me ever since I was a kid and grew up to attend 11 schools. One might assume that I must be a pro by now (*flips her hair*), but the “I am the new kid in the class” nervousness has never deserted me – just like my mysterious yet faithful little bump on my forehead that one might concur is a zit, but I secretly feel is the magical abode of fairy godmother (= definitely affecting my ability to think straight).
First Day At School Syndrome
- Excitement is on a lower scale when compared to the clammy hands and dry mouth.
- One indulges in numerous monologues where you state examples such as Satya Nadella and Sabeer Bhatia who ventured out alone and made such a huge mark.
- You secretly hope and pray incessantly to receive a text that says: “Sorry, today’s schedule has been postponed. Kindly join us from Monday.”
Nothing happened. Nothing has happened, it has been six hours since I stepped inside – my back has mirrored the various alphabet, and not just a C, in the English dictionary thanks to the super-comfy couch. Turns out I really didn’t have anything to fear, nobody really cared whether I was new or not, excitement certainly would have arisen if I had fallen flat on my face (thankfully that wasn’t meant to be).
