It has been an interesting week. Well, I am going to Chennai on an official trip and I will be there for 3 weeks. I am going there to help out our counterparts there who work on a similar process and who have a trainer shortage. So I will take over a new hire training batch from the 10th till the 30th of this month. Just 20 days but it feels so adhoc, so unorganized and so sudden to me. I tried getting out of it but no go and hence I am going. My flight is around noon, Air India, and I will be staying in company arranged hotel accommodations.
This week I have been ill; a nasty cold & cough spiraled into a case of sinusitis and I am not fully healed yet. I hope I don’t fall ill while in Chennai. I just attended an Rn R function for the office and I did win a small award for my contributions and a surprise gift as well, which turned out to be a custom coffee mug. The organizers had stuck a Winner tag on the bottom of one of the chairs and I flipped mine over, didn’t find it, but I also flipped the empty chair in front of me and that turned out to be the one. Most of the day, post lunch, I sat with my best friend at the office, away from everyone else and she and I chatted about random stuff while not discussing about the various events being conducted.
I left at 5pm, just a few minutes after she did and came home. I stopped at the corner store to buy some supplies and toiletries for the trip. Evening has been mostly sitting at my computer and watching Youtube.
