day 2377 – stay home

didn’t feel like going into work at all and the snow helped me make that call. really have been down in the dumps and needed a break from everything. there’s just so much to think about and lots to plan for if i indeed want to make all my dreams come true. my body and brain needs more than this one day to reset, but i’m getting started on it and foresee i’ll take some time off soon. i stayed home, slept in, and did absolutely nothing. i did once think about going to the gym but i had no car for that

2093 – bored

the journey has been quite rough the last little while, mainly referring to the work aspect. sometimes i just feel so unfulfilled at work these days because the waiting game continues. my kits collection rendering is delayed because the sketchup vray license is having issues. as a result, i’m killing time just doing floor plan conversions until the korean brothers can get it working again. i’m just trying to get through the week in one piece

2045 – work deadline

kits collection rendering are due tomorrow – all schemes, streamlines, formulas, and flat lays. it’s been stressful the past weeks leading up to the deadline and especially stressful the last couple days. i’ve been modeling and doing test renders like crazy on three monitors and three computers but at times that didn’t even seem enough. even though i’ve been working so hard on this, there’s still people that will try to prove their noble self by pushing you down and those that completely undervalue what you just did

day 2010 – test render

modeling and rendering my own bedroom as my first official test render. been talking to my manager about doing renderings for ages, but could never peel me off the work load. with the latest transition, his promise still stands. my manager and i agreed that this will be the perfect time to finally do what i’ve been wanting – model and render. the test render came out with a result so satisfyingly real. this will be the first of many and each one will only get better

day 1713 – pallets

at a family sushi lunch and the topic of vacations was the main discussion. we discussed where we would go to link with our hong kong trip, and of course korea is up there on my list. after some raw fish fix, it was time to get down to do some work. it is indeed another homeworking sunday and another coffee shop hopping opportunity. this me, my work and a matcha latte to get through some work. it’s probably for the better since we’re being rained in

day 1428 Рrender frenzy 

speed testing coworker’s crazy ten thousand dollar computer towers with some sketchup vray renders while he’s on vacation. this forty eight cpu tower is a monster compared to my eight cpu. i’ll be mulling around his workstation and putting those extra cpus to good use before he’s back. with this, there’s hope i’ll be able to finish the renders stacy garcia wanted

day 1295 Рanother move 

the department has had a lot of changes since the new manager stepped in. my role has been flipped upside down and i’m not on a team anymore. i’m on my own transitioning into developing a new collection of drawings and renderings. this will be a good change and a good challenge for myself. and although my desk has been relocated, the same desk setup still applies
