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 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 2145 – department change

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

day 1659 – noodle soup

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

day 916 – resourcefulness

fiddling with whatever i can get a hold of as the chat continued through the night. sometimes i need distractions to stay involved in a coversation. had an interesting conversation with really self driven and motivated people┬áthat’s always looking for ways to make an impact. the conversation made me think about things in a different perspectives and made me wonder if i would thrive with the same drive. what they taught me was you must first and foremost love what you do because there’s no purpose or reason in life without passion

day 798 – free turkey

image

a bizarre way of marketing for a physio clinic but i guess that being bizarre also catches people’s attention. this day and age, people are coming up with some of the most random ideas. not sure if i would do it just for the turkey, i wouldn’t have any use for the turkey since there’s no turkey feast this thanksgiving. having turkey is great, but i’d much rather not have turkey meals for the five days that follows
