day 2225 – clean and jerk

coach changed my program up and is getting me to relearn my clean and jerk. this is considered leveling up because he thinks i have a chance of going to competition in the near future. i think i’m up for the challenge and would like a shot at a weightlifting competition. first day on the clear and jerk program is light and easy one. it’s also considered a deload week with lighter snatches and light clean and jerks

day 2148 – first renderings

a look back at my first marketing rendering i did for the kits collection brochure. a lot of new learnings happened during my first crack at sketchup and vray plugins. i like that i’ll have a lot more freedom to explore sketchup and vray as a whole while creating branding for my own work. i see this also as an opportunity to improve the many skills i’ve longed for

day 1946 – second year

two years ago to the day, i stepped into this office with a loosely defined position under a manager that hadn’t got a clue. insert a different manager and fast forward two years later, i’ve learned a lot under his guidance, and grown to become a better leader. i couldn’t be happier of where my manager has guided me. he who believed i could handle a team behind me and described me to have a cool temperament. looking back this year, i’ve accomplished a whole lot without even noticing. moving into third year, i’ll have to continually think about what i want to be and where i ultimately want to go

day 1903 – continuation of seminar

enjoying my poke bowl for lunch during my second day of this seminar. it’s customized with salmon and tuna sashimi, mango, crab meat, masago, ginger, nori, shoots and topped with spicy sriracha sauce. since we got the basics down yesterday, we’re learning how to build a project and practicing how to setup according to our own preferences. i’ve been pretty intrigued and impressed with what the program can do

day 1902 – cabinet vision

day one of a three day training on cabinet. vision. the expectation was to have a full day going through dry material while being trapped in a windowless room for eight hours. that wasn’t the case and it turned out way more interesting than expected. i was originally suppose to travel to ontario for this training, but instead, manager and coo was in support and brought in a presenter. company paid training and catered lunch from chopped leaf doesn’t sound too shabby

day 1863 – wild mushroom

good thing i didn’t dare to touch or pick any of these weird looking orange mushrooms up during the hike. multiple sources have told me these wild growing fungi are poisonous in some way. who knows maybe if i touched them they would infect me or better yet mutate me into something else. just one of those life lessons you come across and gain knowledge of as you explore the world and see more of what’s outside the daily life

day 1847 – work screens

when i’m finally free from meetings and trying to get some work done and it department remotes onto my computer to play with my outlook. work is stressful day in and day out, but it’s made better when coworkers messed up with my Brain. it’s funny the topic covered in today’s emerging leader program is mainly about stress management and how to cope with it. it’s one of those things i’ll training for as i continue to grow and lead my team
