day 2038 – design brunch

we’re overdue for a group activity so we’re treated to a design brunch at comina. we took advantage of the nice day out and walked around steveston area and fisherman’s wharf before heading back to work. some bought plants, a few grabbed mini donuts, and many grabbed coffee during our ‘free’ time. sometimes a breath of fresh air relieves some stress and pulls us out of a things we shouldn’t be caught up with

day 1941 – wanchai

one wishlist item on my hong kong trip is to ride the old school tram. i did just that today heading to wanchai from central. this district is crazy packed on any given night, let alone a saturday night. i stopped by my friend’s family burger shop but decided not to bother his dad seeing the already jam packed restaurant. instead, we ate at a small noodle house and walked around some famous strip including a school converted shopping mall

day 1936 – lamma island

meeting up with another long time friend and teammate for a day trip to lamma island. it’s my first time on this island so we decided to do a hike and eat a lot of fresh seafood. it was a hot day so i couldn’t keep my long sleeve on as much as i wanted to protect myself from mosquitoes. after lamma island, we took the ferry back and hit up tsimshatsui. that wasn’t a very wise choice because it’s one of the most crowded places on a weekend evening. i must mention part of the reason is hit up via tokyo for some matcha ice cream

day 1877 – emerging leaders

running from meeting to meeting the entire day, i barely spent anytime at my own desk. the only time i’m at my desk i’m just trying to catch up on my emails. emerging leader meeting, one of the three long meetings i had throughout the day, provided some valuable insight on strategic planning. the two hour tradeshow process meeting in the afternoon was a killer and lost me brain dead halfway through. it’s great i’m contributing to these process meetings, but that takes so much out of my project time

day 1869 – apparatuses

didn’t spend any time at my own desk this morning. i had a good long meeting with the director followed by the bpdt team. constant meetings is very draining so really looking forward to getting off work and onto my way to practice some acrobatic stuff. felt a little tight and lethargic, didn’t really feel good about my back tucks. progress has been really slow, and i’m disappointed to say the least. i’m sure a lot of setbacks as to do with my ongoing shoulder woes

day 1847 – work screens

when i’m finally free from meetings and trying to get some work done and it department remotes onto my computer to play with my outlook. work is stressful day in and day out, but it’s made better when coworkers messed up with my Brain. it’s funny the topic covered in today’s emerging leader program is mainly about stress management and how to cope with it. it’s one of those things i’ll training for as i continue to grow and lead my team

day 1622 – smiliesĀ 

i may not have had the most restful night, or even had enough at all, but it was a good day. looking at my workload and queue you would think i should be overwhelmed. instead, i’m handling the multiple deadlines and pressure in controlled manner. i was really dialed in and it’s paying dividends in productivity. i left the weekly tech meeting feeling really good with a clear picture. it seems i’ll be occupied ramping up on the new programs. monday work and tutor went smoothly which is worth smiling about
