What does Annie do the day after her 6-year anniversary? She goes to her OT orientation from 9am-4pm of course!
I got up at 6:15am to get ready to leave for the bus stop at around 7:30am to get to school on time. Since I got the wrong manual from the bookstore [they printed it wrong], I had to go exchange it so the manager switched it no problem. When I got to the orientation room, I realized he gave me pattern II's manual instead of pattern I so I had to go back to the bookstore to switch it yet again, lol. Good thing the faculty started late, haha. The chair of the department, Heidi Pendleton gave a short welcome speech & introduced us into the manual, going through procedures & what the staff expects of us. We had a 15 minute break afterwards before getting into groups to complete a survey about ourselves for the staff to get to now us better.
After the personal surveys, we headed over to the BBQ pits to get our lunch, pizza with lemonade & cake! Loved the vegetarian pizza, yumm! I basically hung out with Cheryl, Ngan, & Priscilla [she's a year ahead]. Cheryl & I also paid our membership fee for SOTA & bought the OT planner since it looked helpful.
At 1:15pm, we had to head into our department building & we got to color & draw symbols that represent us & what we love *giggle* Then we took a tour of the department & we got shown our mailbox where the department left us each an envelope with a surprise in it, an SJSU pencil! We also took a survey of the manual before being let out to go home.
