Annoying Housemate

One of my house mate has already gone over board. He never cleans the house; instead, he messes it up. I was back in KL for a day last week to attend to some personal matters. When I got back to my rented house, it was a mess.

I walked in to be invited by a stinky smell. The smell of rubbish. Instead of throwing the garbage at the dumping area downstairs, he decided to just leave it behind the main door near my room door. Not only was it stink,garbage water was seeping out of the bag and there were maggots around the hall area. My guess is that it was there for almost a week, if not more. I had to clean it up yet again.

Second thing that pissed me of was the fact that he left his 'fat-ass' underwear on the dining chair. WTF!!! It's where people sit to have meals or chit chat. He is suppose to be a graduate but he act like a piece of uneducated trash. The hall is a common place you don't put stuff like that all over the place.

The other thing that got on my nerve is after sweeping the floor, he'd just throw the broom aside instead of hanging it up in the proper place. Even after using the dust-pan, he doesn't empty it. he just leaves the rubbish there. I wonder if he thinks the rubbish will disappear on its own.

I got so pissed I wrote a 3 page long note to him with a marker pen and stuck it on his room door with a double sided tape. I should have glued the notes so it won't come off.

I just wonder what his parents taught him at home. Mess the house?

Internship 2

Work work!!! I'm working like a peon. It's already 1 week since I started my training and it has been work work and more work. I got to learn how to handle machines. Not 1, not 2. but 4 machines. Tomorrow, I'll be taught a new machine. So that makes it 5.

Yes, it's a good thing that I have something to do and learn but I'm kind of stressing up a little. You see; it's not just the handling of machines I'm learning. I'm required to know what project to run, what tooling table to use, etc. All the info packing up in my head in a mere 1 week. I'm not a fast learner so that's a disadvantage (kind of) for me.

Well, I hope I'll be able to adapt fast and become an asset instead of a liability :)

I've heard stories about how interns have nothing to do during their internship but that is not necessarily the case. I started my internship in AMD on Thursday.

On my first day, I had to attend some introductory talk where they briefed us on their culture and what is expected of us trainees. We are expected to 'work' and if our job is not finished, we can't go home (that is how they function). Also, at the end of our training, we have to do a presentation to the manager on what we have done for the past 3 months. They call it "Project".

I was introduced to my supervisor and was taken for a tour in the production line. (I know how they manufacture computer processors already :D)

The second part of the day got a little busy. I went to help my supervisor collect some data for her project. Half-way through, the machine started to act-up; forcing us to stop work. :( By the time we finished, it was already 6pm. It was a tiring day, but it was fine. That, was 1st day of work.
