back to work the day after a long weekend didn’t have me jumping out of bed for joy. i almost overslept because i had forgotten to turn on the recurring the alarm clock. good thing my fitbit alarm woke me up quarter past six. the day could have been even worse; at least i’m doing something fun like rendering for the hawaii tradeshow. no olympic lifting today like my regular tuesday because i had gone yesterday
going to work on monday morning with mixed emotions because the switch in position and department is considered a promotion. the fact i’m removed from the department i’ve grown with leaves a sour feeling. also having work with someone i need time and space from is rather uncomfortable. still, work must go on and i’ll be professional about it and keep the interaction at a business level. at the end of the day i just need to get my stuff done
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
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
couldn’t go to singapore and not visit the iconic hotel while doing touristy things. i call it the hotel with surfboard on the top. even though i didn’t manage to watch crazy rich asian before this trip, i know this is crucial checkpoint. the hotel was so nice both inside and outside; i was so amazed by the designs and architecture as i was walking through the common areas within the lobby. this is definitely one hotel i want to stay in next time i’m back
finally a sample was made on what must be the fifth revision. i’ve had it with the millennial bed base revisions and no longer care how everyone wants the design to be. they keep changing my initial design and every time someone has something to say. i personally don’t like the recessed kick, but i’m not going to add my input. i just want this done with so i can turn my attention to next year’s collection.
fourth day going strong on my intermittent fasting and pushing through even at the toughest hours. tracking the calories will always be something i do, but i find i’m enjoying my food much more knowing i can eat in my window. i was craving noodles yesterday but boss got us booster juice by default. still got the feeling for noodles today so went and got my tomato papaya with coworkers. it’s an odd group made of four different departments, but the connection between us has really bolstered lately
