  7. Loved this post! And I’m sure you know why. :)Wow, your colleague picked you up? Cool! Nice, considerate people you have there. πŸ˜›Ma came along for the thrillSo sweet! :)I wonder why yopu didn’t italicise the words, ‘my seat and my system’.And also, I’m in no search for friends here.My sentiments exactly! Seriously, I haven’t even thought of making ‘friends’ here. They are my colleagues and that’s what they’ll always be. Of course, there’ll be people whose company I’ll enjoy, but friends, I don’t think we’ll ever be.

  8. @ Jayant”Seriously, I haven’t even thought of making ‘friends’ here. They are my colleagues and that’s what they’ll always be. Of course, there’ll be people whose company I’ll enjoy, but friends, I don’t think we’ll ever be.”Really?We will see…when you have colleagues who help you, bail you out of trouble, make those 8-10 hours of your office life enormous fun, who see you everyday and you see everyday, and who are there to witness some of the most important changes your life will ever undergo. I will check with you again a few years down the line by which time your professional life would have consumed you a bit more, when it will prevent you from hanging out with those who are friends today as much as you would like, just as their careers will prevent them too. When you would have possibly moved out of your present comfort zone only to be thrown in to a whole new city. Where will you go around seeking friends then if not in your office to start with? Seven years ago, when I graduated from Stephen’s, life was unimaginable without my friends from there. Today, it’s down to an occasional email. But with some ex-“colleagues” the equation is far more potent. Nothing remarkable there, just a graph that our lives are meant to follow. So I will check with you about this “colleagues will never be friends” take two years from now, or who knows, in may be three months.

  9. DKHmm…I guess that’s the natural process…you merge with your surroundings over time. Let’s see how soon. :)Thanks.hehee….I think I know that girl. :PYeah, life’s weird. πŸ˜€WoodsmokeThank you.SinjiniHey thanks for such a lovely comment. And thanks for the wishes too. :-)About the template – I just felt like changing it. Will keep your opinion in mind for the next time. Thanks.:)Jayant:-)I met that colleague when I went there last and fixed this ‘picking up’ with her then. Very sweet woman.I don’t know why I didn’t italicise it either. :DAnd I was gonna say the same – don’t look for friends but don’t be so closed to the idea either. Maybe it’s a better way to look at things. What say?

  10. Yeah a fairly detailed post. πŸ™‚ All the best for the whole thing.@ JayantI’m with SayanDi. Okay, here goes. Last year I interned for about six weeks in a well known ad agency. Even today I hang out with majority of the guys, go for gigs, and share stuff. Trust me, with time you will be increasingly fond of your colleagues and seniors and before you know you’d be friends. πŸ™‚ So here’s looking to a good time with friends at work. πŸ™‚

  11. @ Woodsmoke, Rohit & Richa: I’m not saying that I’ll never be friends with any colleague. That’s not humanly possible. Atleast for me it’s not.What I meant was that I’m only here for a short period of time and I’d much rather utilise that time for personal growth and some ‘me time’ than making an effort to forge personal relationships with my co-workers. As I said, a li’l socialising never hurt anyone and I’m not against that per se. Just don’t wanna get carried away, that’s all.

I still remember my first day in my first job…and I think I would mention it in my call canter diary…afterall the first experiences mean a lot.Just one word of Caution…Don’t forget to enjoy and remember…We make colleagues at workplace…not friends…but go out and learn for yourself, its far more fun that ways!

  15. Its good to know that you enjoyed your first day!!! Nothing like it :)And I agree with you about friends at workplace. I would say dont try and get too close…remember its not the same thing as college and therefore you have to make sure you maintain the distance!

  16. Hi..Reading your blog forthe first time.Your detailed blog made me recollect my first day at work. I joined a Call Center, around four years back. My first day , I reached office at 8 PM, something like that..and then after dineer there was a training session..all i remember now was I fell asleep and many like me did the same…Some guy woke me up early morning and told me the cab to north delhi was leaving. I hurried and left. What I do remeeber is the ride to DU via DND Flyover..it was so nice, the breeze, the music, the strange atmosphere (sharing the cab with ppl I had nothing in comon with)..and the view of the long stretch in front…Friends – I agree with Sayantani. You can find great friends in office too. I did. But I also happen to be ‘greatly’ in touch with the girl whom I met on my first day of school and first day of college..Here’s wishing u great luck !
