can someone please share your first few weeks/months as a first year? Really nervous

hi guys, hitting the desk really soon and about to start. How would you guys describe your first few weeks? I heard theres a lot of shadowing/easy work, not much technical work at all? Slow ramp up is to be expected? I know everyones bank and group and experience is different, but I would love to hear what your first responsibilities/tasks were. In a coverage group at a BB if it matters.
