Morning Thoughts Before Starting First Day at Work

The day before yesterday was my first day at work in Melbourne and here are the thoughts that run through my mind before I settled into my work for the day. I documented in Evernote to share it with you because, believe me, it’s worth to read, especially the end part.

06.00 AM – Damn you alarm! Bye!

07.00 AM – I will read this article first before really getting up from the bed.

07.40 AM – Welp, that was not only one article. Time to jump into the shower.

08.00 AM – Why didn’t I pack any sweater or scarf or socks or boots??

08.01 AM – Wait, I didn’t own any boots.

08.04 AM – *Found a sweater on the bottom of my luggage* Wheee!! It looked a little tattered, but that’s okay. A well worn work sweater is a symbol of hard work, right?

08.10 AM – Damn, Melbourne is cold!!

08.11 AM – Cold.

08.12 AM – Cold.

08.13 AM – Sszooo cold.

08.25 AM – Did I just miss my train? Yes, I did.

08.26 AM – Ops, I stood on the wrong platform!

08.28 AM – Missed my train again!!

08.30 AM – Train at last!

08.31 AM  – Whoa morning crowd!! I never rode a packed train in Melbourne before. It is kinda cool and definitely not half as bad as Singapore’s morning crowd.

08.32 AM – This is it, I am a officially a Melbourne yuppie.

08.33 AM – Umm, not really, the working ladies looked so fancy with their perfect/messy hair buns, sexy stockings and 50 shades of gray coats. Me? I am wearing a cropped pants an carrying a flowery bag.

08.34 AM – Hey, where did the biker jacket lady get her coffee?

08.35 AM – Hmmm.. coffee.

08.36 AM – Hmm.. biker jacket.

08.40 AM – Wait, did they say Flinders Station just now?

08.41 AM – Cold

08.42 AM – But first coffee..

Flinders Station Bakehouse

08.43 AM – So many coffee stalls to choose from! I will start from the first and work my way to the end every day of the week.

08.44 AM – First stall was a bad choice. This coffee tasted below par..

08.45 AM –  I am walking to work with coffee cup in my hand, such a strong female character in American TV shows of me.

Southbank Melbourne

08.46 AM – Let me take a picture of this gorgeous morning like these tourists are doing.

08.47 AM – F***! I spilled coffee all over my top! ON MY FIRST DAY OF WORK nonetheless ^%**@@#$!!!

08.48 AM – I am so not gonna tell Hulk about it.

08.50 AM  – At least I can zip my jacket over it.

09.00 AM – ATM! Should I take some money first?  But I am already running late. But what if there is no ATM in my office building? It would be a bad move to borrow money from my almost strangers colleagues, wouldn’t it?

09.02 AM – Lunch money, it’s.


09.10 AM – Time to take lift selfie and send it to Mama Geek.

09.13 AM – I am here! In the actual office 🙂

09.14 AM – And it’s too hot (and weird) to keep wearing my outer jacket. Do I dare to take it off?

09.16 AM – I do. I am brave.

09.20 AM – “Hi *boss name*, I am not late, am I?” I so am, on my first day at work.

And then I realized..

09.21 AM until the end of my first day at work – FFFFF*** we are wearing the exact same clothes! Me and my male boss. A white shirt inside a gray sweater and a black trousers. The only difference is his sweater is clean while mine is artfully decorated with coffee spill.
