I wanna share the bitter sweet of my internship experience from the start. why i would call it one of the hell on earth.
I spent more than a year to find a place to do it. all my friends found it easily, but it's mostly my fault, still, i hate the beginning of it.
when i decided to go door-to-door around Kemang, i finally got a place to do it. but asked to do it for one whole semester, still i'm thankful and do it anyway.
my first month at the office, i feel like a total loser. i was given such job compatible for an elementary level student--browsing.
got mocked by a fellow designer-ironically, he's my alma mater too. ABJ (his initial). he said i'm a disgrace to our alma mater just because i couldn't operate AutoCad in my Mac. (Mac user knows that Mac hasn't support this program yet)
i got some misunderstanding with the owner (whom i owe my ticket to internship, thank you so much ibu) because a fellow designer, JS spread a rumor about me saying i wanted to have a long-distance internship, which wasn't true.
i almost call it quit, but my parents said "once you quit when you face a problem, you'll always be a quitter. now hold your head high and face your misery. That's life." so i did.
i got the most selfish-whinny-intolerant-annoying-disrespectful-bitch as my tutor, and i hate her. yes, i'm done with my internship, so i can post whatever i've always wanted to post now.
my table removed from time to time, and at last i'm stuck with the most dreadful chair i could ever find.
i was supposed to re-create some sofas, according to a picture of the real sofas. I followed the measurement EXACTLY like it said on the book, the bitch whined "ko kayanya kurang lucu ya Lit. (Doesn't look that cute, don't you think, Lit?)" then i resized it to a size that she thought was cute. but then guess what? after 3 revisions, the whole size just changed--again--because what's cute for her, turned out to be uncomfortable. and my early measurement was right.
because of the previous point, the supplier got angry with me. he pointed out that he could only accept 3 revisions. and do you know what that bitch said? "well, tell him to understand, that's how we work here."
when i needed 2 autographs by my two bosses (one director, and one bitch) both of them are kinda hard to find that day. i almost come to one of their home just so i could get the autograph i needed.
i finally finished my internship report and asked that bitch to fill in my score. she was having a bad mood, and without further ado, she gave me BC as my final score. 5 MONTHS, 13 SOFAS. BC. now you understand why i hate her.
the last obstacle happened in the day i had to print the documents (today, May 19th 2010). I arrived at the print center and realized i did not bring my flash disc with me, so i had to go back to my place and take it. it's not that big of a deal actually, but if i sum it up with all my misfortune above, it made such a painful summary.
so to sum up, don't go to a place who hasn't got any experience with intern, and since she gave me BC as my final score, i worked with a BC quality. that's the slightly fair thing i can do to her. god, i hate her.
