day 2085 – quote board

i need to find some way to keep myself motivated at work. too many things are happening around the office, all that doesn’t make any sense from a business standpoint. i can’t wait for the long weekend so i don’t have to deal with the changes that just keeps getting worse one after another. on the bright side, i’m just two days away from the squirtle team getaway to vancouver island. we don’t have much planned, but whatever it is will be better than what it is now

day 2037 – pink shirt day

wearing pink pants to the office to support anti-bullying day. this is one of the few times i will voluntarily wear something so bright because it’s a movement closer to my heart. i’ve been bullied in parts of my childhood because i was small and timid. as a result, i would not look like i can defend or stand up for myself. i guess that explains why i keep things inside my heart and my mind, and that’s developed a shell designed to protect my myself from danger

day 1912 – design table

the new drawers we put in to the plant production finally came into the design studio. it was a massive unit hence it was a big struggle maneuvering and lifting the quartz top. with the help of eight people, we managed to transport the old out and new in. i’m just relieved the cabinet fit into the space or else all fingers points at me. the new drawers definitely puts a big upgrade to the design table and design area as a whole

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 1883 – terrarium building

monthly culture event got the office together doing terrarium building workshop. the strategy going into this was only to fill my fishbowl. in the end, i walked away with a plant, some moss, shells, sand and a mini cat inside a fishbowl. it turned out quite nice so worthy of keeping it at my workstation. it was a really fun and engaging activity despite its simplicity. i guess now the harder part is figuring out how to keep the plant alive not knowing if i need to water it and how often

day 1839 – gym socks

got on the highway and turned for home when i found out i left my gym socks at home. ended up hitting nash after dinner for a quick session of front squats, one of the few barbell exercises i can currently do. nothing like lifting some iron after many consecutive days of rough days at work. some days i question how sane i am to still be at this office. i really do miss this nash now that i don’t come as often due to work and commitments. but it’s here i find myself most comfortable and the place where i get in the best lifts

day 1798 – horseshoe way


getting into work after a long weekend is not quite fun. i was hoping the long weekend would change the insomnia and headaches but so far i feel little improvement. the one person at the office that never fails to give me stress is doing it again, and always trying to pick the moment when my manager is not present. both the planned and ambushed attacks are all part of her strategy to redirect blame when something goes wrong. the trend of taking drugs day after day is not the long term fix, i’m slowly beginning to think a visit to my doctor is necessary. now if only i can find time to make that call
