day 1658 – plant for a day

it’s a statutory holiday but here i am putting in work and getting dusty in the icon plant because they need it. it was labour intensive work with lots of loading, lifting, carrying and cutting. though i have no intention to work in a plant, i acquired new skills such as routering, edge banding, spraying, laminating and cnc-ing; all these will help me do and understand my job better. in the end i even cut and assembled a foot stool for my own desk. it was loud with all the machines and fans running, appreciation for the plant workers who can withstand eight hours of this noise

day 1632 – forklift 101


an unusual day of work but a very interesting one where i learned many things about cnc protocols. soon i’ll be able to program my own files and run that cnc machine by myself. while i was waiting for the machine to run my test, i had an adventure in the plant. barely a crash course and i’m well on my way maneuvering a forklift and picking things up as i please. the plant guys were surprised i wanted hop on, but least surprised i was quick to pick it up. fidgeting and experimenting with new gadgets is what feeds my curiosity mind. learning opportunities is right before my eyes and it’s up to me to seize every opportunity

day 1619 – workshop sampling

taking a field trip next to door to icon workshop to inspect and watch the building of headboards. it’s been a really busy first week back at work. the pace of the first week has been immensely different than last year. behind those shades i’ve been quietly taking care of business getting plenty of work done managing the triage of work. for me, this could be the year filled with opportunities to step up and prove myself capable for the lead role
