My Batman!

Wearing my new formals complete with a pen and a notebook I walk into the office to start my first day of a year long internship (college mandated). I knew a senior from college who had already been working at that company. On my first day he comes to my floor and introduces me to this person, let's call him "Mr.Let's kick some ass", later to be known as "Batman, my Batman.

He happened to be from my college itself, two years senior in fact. I took an instant liking to him being my college senior and all. Within a month of my joining, I was assigned to work on a project with him. And since then the two of us have working very closely. I like to think of us as Robin and Batman! He was a very cool person to work with. Working with him wasn't like working with a manager or a senior, it was like working with a buddy. It wasn't like I am working for a manager, because to him, my opinions mattered just as much as his own.

The reason I am writing is that  today is my last day working with him and I am just a little overwhelmed by this. He was my first mentor, right out of college. The things he has taught me are going to stick with me for the rest of my career. And being his men-tee I have picked up a few of his habits as well! Like the fact that when he copies something pressing Ctrl+C once isn't enough, he presses C like so many times. This is a very silly thing that he does and I have just picked it up from him. And I am going to keep doing this every time I have to copy something.

He is the first person who taught me the ropes of the corporate world. He would shield me if I had done any mistake, get angry but not let anyone find out. Gave me all the freedom I wanted to work with just a hint of supervision. He was not just a manager, he was a friend and I will always hold a special place for him, my Batman!
