My first week in California has been a good one. I've been getting up to speed at work, and I've settled into my apartment a little more. My roommate arrived last night, so I'll have some company for the rest of the summer.
My first week at Apple has gone well. The first couple of days were filled with the typical boring new job drill: new employee orientation, getting a badge, installing software on my computer, and setting up various accounts. After that, I started doing my actual work, and things got a lot more interesting. I'm developing software (firmware, really) for a next-generation iPod. I like my team, and I like the work I'm doing. About my only complaint is that my cube is pretty small, and I have to share it. Despite that, I think it's going to be a good internship.
I've been to the store a few times this week to buy things to make my apartment a little more of a home. Chief among my purchases was the meager beginnings of a cereal collection:
I discovered this week that a box lasts me about three days, so I have a little over a month's worth of breakfast stashed above the cabinet. Maybe I should buy stock in General Mills.
