day 2201 – picture wall

i learned some new today, that my twinning photo from last halloween hangs outside the human resources office. i don’t visit downstairs often, but i was bored after lunch and decided to take a trip down. the wall features past office culture events like halloween, christmas party, summer barbecue, and other hd community events. things have changed a lot since that picture, some good and some bad

day 2177 – hd summer bbq

the day of our annual summer barbecue party has come and there’s a lot of preparation as usual. it’s always good to only work half day and party in the other half. this year is hawaiian themed so we had guest come to present an ‘aloha experience’. we had the usual human foosball, photo booth and of course tug of war. new to this year is the limbo contest which i participated but didn’t win. so surprised i won dr dre beats from the raffle draw, which never happens with my luck

day 2175 – render glitches

sketchup glitches getting in the way of updating hampton prototypes. what’s modeled isn’t what comes out in the interactive rendering. it’s not something that can’t be fixed, usually simply closing and reopening the file or removing the item and replacing it will do the job. most updates for the casual scheme are complete queued and waiting to be rendered. part of a renderer’s life cycle is clicking the render button and waiting for the crop to appear

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 2031 – pacman model

using sketchup at work all day almost everyday can be tiring on the eyes, but i enjoy it. was in the midst of building a lamp for my kits collection model room and accidentally built a pacman and pokeball instead. it’s a little nerve wracking that the marketing brochures are relying on my renders, but i’ve been chucking along the models and seem to have things under control. i can’t wait to have my first renders be on these brochures

day 1963 – gr8 party

rushed out of work to attend my second company christmas party at harrison. one of the few occasions i will dress up plus wear heels and accessories. same as last year, there it was buffet style with open bar, dance floor, speeches, photo booth and door prizes. i wad happy with my door prize and a gift card from the trivia. what i least expected was an award for receiving the most teamwork star performers of 2018. all i was worried about was tripping as i go up on stage to retrieve it. went back up to my hotel room and laid on my bed expecting to be called to the party room

day 1855 – vignette

i don’t enjoy the dust-filled environment, but it’s kind of necessary with expanded responsibilities. increased plant visits as of late to check up on both tradeshow booth and vignette casegoods. i can’t allow for any mistakes because the deliverables and success of the tradeshows rests on me. every time i go into the shop, the plant guys give me strange looks. they’ll have to get used to the fact that a fresh faced girl is patrolling their territory
