day 2334 – little human

this little human came into work with her mom today but didn’t want to be with her. instead, she spent much of her time at my desk. she kept my busy by asking me to keep her busy. she wasn’t into drawing or colouring, so i gave her a bunch of fun homework. she wanted to take a selfie with me on her mini camera, but ended up cutting off half my forehead and half her face. i’m glad she had fun day at office, and as much as i didn’t want to come to work when nobody else was working, she made my day by go a lot faster

day 2317 – finest snowflakes

to make the office look less bare, a few of us have been carving some time out to cut some snowflakes. the first one was rather square to say the least. over the course of the past couple days, my crafts has improved and my snowflakes have never looked better. i took two of my finest and stuck them at my desk. i left the office on friday looking a little more spruced up and ready to the festive season

day 2198 – desk reconfiguration

i’m asked to reconfigure my workstation again because marketing team was said to be too far apart. at least i don’t have to move again and only have to change my desk setup from right hand side to left hand side. i’ll still get to use my giant monitors as acoustic panels to shield the noise and distraction from the high traffic area. a good chance to clear out my desk and get ready to leave it for the weekend

day 2149 – new spot old spot

funny after swapping desks several times within the last year, i’ve come a full circle back to my old spot. the only difference is i’m not sitting here as part of the marketing team as opposed to the design team. there’ll be more traffic and noise where i am now, but i like that i get some additional meeting space and round table behind me. wherever i am situated, my workstation setup doesn’t really change much

day 1965 – star performer

img_20200130_2158157420023399569796739.jpgi must say getting a star performer plaque for the year was the pleasant surprise. it has been a crazy stressful year. many days i just go about my business and work my butt to make all the deadlines. it’s good to know that the hardwork and dedication to hold this fort down didn’t go unnoticed. and this year i showed up to harrison to represent the design tech team

day 1857 – glassware

drying out all my glassware at work before i take off for the long weekend. the number of glass containers and mason jars i own have tripled. this is all kind of influenced by one of my zero waste enthusiast friend. you can say this week has been slow, but at the same time fast. manager wasn’t in this week, but that means i have to make some decisions without the presence of him. gladly looking forward to a long weekend off to chill, rest, party and quite possibly drink a lot

day 1693 – say no

i dreamt that i was really stressed at work and turns out i had a good reason to. three of my tech members were away or sick. it’s irritating when one of then has been missing a lot of time giving reasons like slept in, migraine, stomachache or lung disease. it bugs me how low their threshold is, to call in sick so hastily and so often. i, too, am in quite some discomfort, but here i am at work responsible and trying to get some things done
