Back Home Again (My Internship)

So my internship ended yesterday and I finally got to sleep till noon again. Feels good to be honest, but it definatly was worth it to get up early and work for the four days.

The internship was awesome, even though I didn't get so much to do. As an intern you mostly get to do the stuff, that the employed people don't want to do. But let's start at the beginning.

On the first day I arrived 30 minutes early, which is of course better than 30 minutes too late. I then sat down in the break room and waited for the community manager (if that is the right word in english), while the four other interns arrived. Other then greeting each other, it was an awkward silence. After a few minutes the community manager then got us into another room, where we got to know each other better. After that we went through the whole market and saw for example the warehouse, the service area and all that stuff. Then we got split up into different departments. I was in the "new media" one, which included computers, laptops, printers and everything that had to do with it.
I then met my colleagues for the four days, which always told me what to do and also told me about the work itself. They were all pretty nice to me and it made the work easier and more fun.

For the four days it then was looking for work, doing the work and again looking for work, while learning more about the job and the store. It never was overwhelming or too hard, while sometimes being monotonous.

Overall it was a fun experience and I'd really like to get the apprenticeship. It isn't decided yet and I will get the news next week. On the last day I talked to the head of my department and he told me, he thinks I was better than the intern before me, so that's a light on the horizon.


In other news: I have my theoretical test for my driving license on monday, which I still have to learn for. After that of course comes the practical one, but that's still a little farer away. I still hope, that I can write more posts again after monday, since then I'll have more free time again.
