I have officially completed my first week as an intern here at Derooted. I have been asked to write a personal blog, which is another first for me on the job. Although I have expanded my Adobe skills considerably in the past week, I thought it would be more fun to blog about the things I’ve learned about Derooted.
Things I have learned thus far:
- Writing this blog terrifies me
- The fancy Italian coffee machine gets a lot of attention around here and as long as it’s around, I won’t be making any coffee runs
- Monday mornings are cold; Wear your Hot-Chilly ski socks to work.
- Simon can’t eat…anything (due to his training for the big marathon coming up in the spring)
- Twitter is the god of social media
- We are extremely organized
- You can buy tea bags for loose leaf tea so that you don’t have to settle with those awful metal infusers
- When I leave at the end of the day I say goodnight to Amir and Simon who are stationed at their desks, and when I walk in in the morning they are situated in the exact same spot, just with a slight wardrobe change
- Chile is a very long country and is located in South America
- If you don’t watch Lost, you feel very left out on Wednesday mornings — The Bachelor just doesn’t cut it for them
- Cereal is a North American thing, so is a PB&J sandwich
- There is always something good playing on the stereo, although most of the time I’ve never heard of it
