day 1683 – fancy pastry

getting treated by the marketing team with some fancy decadence. in the week long absence of my manager, the few us of leads held the fort down and the marketing manager went the extra mile to make some callouts. in my mind, i was just going about my business; in the eyes of others, we presented ourselves professionally even when other departments tried to rattle us. while some took the opportunity to slack and call in sick, i kept going in day after day. ten weeks into the year, i’m the only one in design department to still have a perfect track record and still planning on going strong

day 1637 – canuckle head


dethroning the kings wasn’t expected but that’s what canucks did as eriksson potted two goals within four minutes into the first period. my prediction prior to the game was a win four to two,  but they went on to drown the kings six to two. getting the win was good but also seeing boeser score two more and horvat finally back in the lineup was even better. this night out was definitely needed as i had one heck of a day at work fielding ridiculous requests after requests. wish these people dishing out unreasonable requests would have some understanding and knowledge of what we do is really not cut and paste

day 1632 – forklift 101


an unusual day of work but a very interesting one where i learned many things about cnc protocols. soon i’ll be able to program my own files and run that cnc machine by myself. while i was waiting for the machine to run my test, i had an adventure in the plant. barely a crash course and i’m well on my way maneuvering a forklift and picking things up as i please. the plant guys were surprised i wanted hop on, but least surprised i was quick to pick it up. fidgeting and experimenting with new gadgets is what feeds my curiosity mind. learning opportunities is right before my eyes and it’s up to me to seize every opportunity

day 1596 – get happy

wake up and be happy that i’m making a difference in someone’s day. happy moment when i feel like i got a lot done and got a shoutout during the admin meeting. as usual i got home pretty late but pretty happy that the day went well and that although there’s a lot of deadlines, everything went smoothly. with christmas just a dozen days away, each day is getting more precious and more booked up by the minute

day 1371 Рall business 

landed in vegas new york new york for my first ever business trip. travelling with my manager is a scary thought, but after having lunch and an afternoon with him, he’s actually a pretty cool guy. tonight is the only free time i will have. i didn’t expect the fitness centre hours to be so lame, so i explored and chilled around the hotel. i had mixed feelings all the way here because i didn’t want to leave my comfort zone and feel so alone, but i’m going to make the best of it and get ready to work
