I am a very lucky person.
I started working as a bus driver on wednesday- even though it is "only" a practicum.
In about two to three weeks I'll start for real (with contract and all), if everything goes well.
And I am sure it does! :)
For now I get to ride with other bus drivers, they show me the different routes I get to drive, where the halts are and how to control the ticket machine.
The first day I was sitting mostly on the co-driver seat watching every move my co-worker/teacher made and tried to memorize as much as I could.
The second day I got to drive quite a lot which was very cool.
After two long days (10-11 working-hours) I got to rest on Friday AND the weekend.
I really have to say I needed those 3 days.
I had to concentrate a lot and that really made me tired. AND it's been a while since I had to work so many hours.
But everything will get easier soon, I am a fast learner and as soon as I get the hang of it all (or at least the basics for now) I'll be more relaxed and that will help too.
Tomorrow I'll have a new teacher and we'll drive different routes I guess...
I am looking forward to the transition between
this (chilling and hanging out at the porch every day)
A career as the captain of a yellow bus...
Here's a photo of me in my new job-outfit!
