day 1783 – magazine famous

the year-long development of millennial that was not without stress finally paid its dividends. best part of design is when your work or final product gets featured in a magazine. how rewarding it is to have my development appear in a hd expo design magazine. it was a whole team effort that made this happen. this is my first appearance in a magazine and what an unreal feeling it is. let’s keep it coming with the future collections and designs

 

day 1569 – millennial 


it can’t get much more rewarding when my senior and manager congratulates me on a job well done. the meeting was a success as i presented my new collection to other department managers. putting together the design, renderings and shop drawings of my new collection was a lot of work, but what took place today is more than enough to justify. the meeting outcome was good, but it’s the process that is more important and i have my team to thank. feeling convinced i’ve earned some time to let myself loose

day 1484 – overtiming 


staying late at work to rush some drawings for stacy garcia meeting. workload has been a little overwhelming the last little while especially with manager away. it’s great that i’m stepping up to  take on more responsibility and that he’s shown more trust, but it comes more overtimes and frequent lunch breaks are not taken. it is exciting that i will have this collection tagged in my portfolio; who knew i’d be designing a whole line of casegoods? maybe this serves as the distraction away from decision making with the grandmaster

day 1457 – sushiuomo

i quite like the new place we found and the temakis that was served. it was a feel good kind of day because i felt encouraged at work when my manager told me he praised me during the management meeting for how well i’ve been developing the new collection and the rhythm the technical team is in. makes me understand that my hard work isn’t transparent and good managers will always be there to let you know that

day 1450 – coffee call

manager wants me to take over more of the talking with each conference call so eventually he doesn’t even sit in with me. i fielded most of the design questions this time and he complimented after the meeting. i can finally breathe after a week of frantic preparation for a conference call with manager and outsource designers. my manager wanted me to take more initiative in the call. i desperately reached for an afternoon coffee after the long haul. the one time i wear white to work and i still coffee on my favorite white shirt

day 1428 – render frenzy 

speed testing coworker’s crazy ten thousand dollar computer towers with some sketchup vray renders while he’s on vacation. this forty eight cpu tower is a monster compared to my eight cpu. i’ll be mulling around his workstation and putting those extra cpus to good use before he’s back. with this, there’s hope i’ll be able to finish the renders stacy garcia wanted

day 1407 – tirelessly going

been hemmed in developing this new collection. after fiddling with lighting settings and going through many partial renders and trial runs, this is the first fully rendered room i can settle with. keeping busy and overloading myself with eleven hours so there’s no idle time and nothing else but work. if i could squeeze work in every sector of my day to occupy my mind, i need not to worry i’ll be thinking, feeling or crying. the best solution i can come up with until i can no longer take it
