歓迎会 - Welcome Party

昨日は会社の部門のみんなが僕の歓迎会を開いてくれた。

上司の手違いもあり(笑)予約した部屋の定員をはるかに超える数の人が来てくれた。いや~ぁ、面白い話で盛り上がった、盛り上がった。部門のみんなで飲みに行くことはあまりないらしいけど、それにしてもほんとに楽しいのみになった。ということで部門の皆さん、ありがと~ぉ!

それにしてもあぁいう席で「挨拶を」なんて言われちゃうと何言っていいのか分からない(笑)。座ったときにちょ~大昔のテレビ番組「フィーリングカップル」の話が出たから、その延長で「一応独身で~す。趣味は...」とか言えばよかったのかな(笑)。

歓迎会終わってからまた赤羽で終電まで飲むことに。楽しかったけどこれがいけなかった(痛)。今日の朝は本当にきつかった~。まだ試用期間ということもあり、新入社員は9時には会社にいなければいけない。歓迎会のあと上司に遅く来ていいか聞くべきだったな~ぁ...。

なんとなく部門の中に少しずつながら溶け込んで行けている自分がいる気がする。みんなも自然に気を使ってくれてるのも良く分かるし。あとはとにかくいい仕事をやるのみ。

My team members at work organised a welcome party for me last night.

Thanks to(?!) my boss's misunderstanding, we ended up having a lot more people than the capacity of the room we had reserved. We had a great time with lots of fun talk. I hear they don't go for drink often as a team, but what a fun time we had! It was a great drinking session. Thanks so much my teammates!

I don't really know what to say when asked to do 'introduction' at such occasion. :-P We were talking about an old TV dating show at the beginning, so maybe I should have carried on by saying 'Well, I am not married, and my hobby is...'. :-P

I ended up drinking with one of the colleagues who live quite close to me at Akabane until the final train back home. It was fun, but what a mistake that was! It was soooooooo hard this morning. Because I am still on probation, newcomers have to be at work at 9AM. I really should have asked my boss whether I could come in a bit later than usual last night...

I realise that I am beginning to settle in the team at work. People around me have been very nice to me too. Now all I have to do is to do a damn good job.
