The Internship, Day 2

Downtown Atlanta(The View of Downtown Atlanta from my office building)

I think that this is the highest I’ve ever been in an office building. But anyways, my first day in the office was pretty cool. I met everyone on the floor and was placed in a design group. I spent the day getting acclimated to a program called Microstation (which is nothing more than a high priced Microsoft Paint) which was initially easy at first, but I still need to work with it to get it down.

WIth this being my first time away from home EVER, I thought I’d be all sad and depressed because I can’t see my family or friends, or do things that I would normally do. Seeing as how this is Day 3, I think I’m holding up pretty well. Here’s what I’ve missed so far (as far as things goin on back home):

Neice J got her driver’s license

My nephew went to the bathroom by himself for the first time.

It’s all good though. I’m happy for them, and a little bummed out that I couldn’t be there, but hey, I have more important fish to fry.

I haven’t really been to too many places here in Atlanta b/c i’m still learning my way around and because of the fact that i’m living like a true college student (meaning my ass is broke, and will be until pay day…later on this month).

Staying at Georgia Tech is really cool as well. I have 4 Roomates (We have our own rooms) and they’re all pretty cool guys. I’m still navigating my way around campus, and I can say without a doubt, that Georgia Tech is where I want to go to Grad School. Just being around here over the summer, the school is beautiful, the women are beautiful 🙂 and its way more diverse than any HBCU could ever be. There’s also mad things going on up here during the summer. I know for a fact, that Morgan State would’nt have damn near as much on campus traffic during a SCHOOL DAY let alone the summer.

Ok, lemme stop rambling. Time for me to start getting ready for work in the AM.

    Glad you’re loving ATL. I love it there too. The place you need to go though for a great view is the Westin Hotel. They have a rotating restaurant on the top floor. You can’t beat that…

    “With this being my first time away from home EVER”
    Aww that’s cute. Man, you’re learning microstation already!? Nice. I won’t get to learn it for another week or so. This is my first internship and I’m starting to feel like you learn a whole lot more from this than in the classroom. Tell me what you think after a couple weeks. It’s cool you’re in a happenin’ town. Once you find your way around, I’m sure you’ll have a blast. As for the homesickness, it may creep up on you eventually, but as long as you’re comfortable with your new environment, you’ll do well. Good luck!
