The first week of my new job is over!
I had been nervous beforehand. But now, I'm relieved since the job seems to really suit me :)
I took an orientation on April 1. The next day, my maneger told me about the outline of my division and my duties. My co-workers are kind and cheerful. All of them look willing to be working there.(All of them seem content to be working there.)
Honestly, I preferred to have lunch alone because it's the most comfortable for me.
However, two seniors always invite me for lunch, and they are kind and easy to chat with(/talk to), so I started to like having lunch with them :) Both are about 10 years older than me, and have a lot more experience. I hope I can learn a lot of things from them.

⚠️seems の直後に名詞は置けない。形容詞を挟んでも違和感があると思われる。(✖︎He seems a nice doctor/ a doctor) ➡︎to be を忘れずにつける。(He seems to be a nice doctor)
