My First Day at somewhere in…

I have forgotten when I last wake up 6:30 am in the morning to prepare myself for office. Actually last two years I used to go to bed at 7:00 am every morning after working whole night and get ready for office around 2:00 pm. It’s just like reversing my daily routine now. But I am happy to change my daily routine for a good purpose. At last I am going to get more time for my family and friends.

So let me get in to the details how my first day at “somewhere in…” went:

I woke up at 6:15 am in the morning and finally get out of the bed at 6:45 am. I started for office at 7:30 am and after having my breakfast at a restaurant nearby, I reached “somewhere in…” at 8:10 am. Though I was the first member of my R&D team to attend the office but I could not beat Arild on arrival. My day started with a discussion about the business model of somewhere in.. and the core objective of the R&D team. Around 11:00 in the morning Arild called a meeting for the new R&D team with 10 members including Me, Hasan, Lavlu, Morshed, Emon, Rossen, Rhythm, Yameen, Mishu and Ajanta. I must say this team just rocks. In a single day we came so close that it gave me the comfort level I was always looking from my team. I also received warm reception from everyone in the company. It is nice to be a part of the BOBs (Best Of Bangladesh).

We had a two hours long meeting and after that we went for our lunch. After lunch I started with my PHP team to discuss the current status of the team and to set our next milestone. I am excited to work on my first localization project. As I can’t type Bangla that well, I faced little bit problem to work fast. I spent most of my time staring at my keyboard rather than typing code. In the afternoon I had a great time playing cricket with my colleagues. I just had a great day in “somewhere in…” and I forgot that the office time is far over. I got out of the office around 7:30 PM.

It was an amazing day for me with so much fun and excitement and I hope to continue to enjoy my moments more and more every day. Actually that’s why everyone in “somewhere in…” is focused to do.

We create colorful moments…
