day 1967 – yankee swap

another year pass by and it comes time for our design christmas lunch and yankee swap in the boardroom. lunch was served with a combination of pasta, salad, cake and sparkling juice. we work hard all year round so it’s good to end the year off by getting the whole department together where we don’t talk about work issues. i got to know a few design people a little better over the last little while. i took home a gift very suitable for me – an organic back wrap microwaveable for both cold and heat aromatherapy. now this is a ticket to continue to go wild with my sports and activities

getting treated by the marketing team with some fancy decadence. in the week long absence of my manager, the few us of leads held the fort down and the marketing manager went the extra mile to make some callouts. in my mind, i was just going about my business; in the eyes of others, we presented ourselves professionally even when other departments tried to rattle us. while some took the opportunity to slack and call in sick, i kept going in day after day. ten weeks into the year, i’m the only one in design department to still have a perfect track record and still planning on going strong

day 1539 Рdesign office 


the admins have finally moved out and we can finally take full ownership of the design studio. took an afternoon to rearrange all the desks and then a morning to set up my own workstation and do all wirings. it’s looking closer to having everything positioned perfectly. here’s where my ocd takes over; i’m particular with the arrangement of my space and like my organized mess just the way it is. my pod is quite cramped in a high traffic area, but i can’t complain with my upgraded computer and inherited office’s biggest monitors
