I’ve gone two days without picking at my skin…knocks on wood! I think this blog is helping because I want to be honest, but at the same time, I don’t want whoever is reading to judge.
I mean, it’s only day 2. But here’s to positive thinking and good vibes!
What happened today: After a wonderful V-day yesterday, I drove home last night and had to bart into work this morning. Honestly, I was dreading it, but it really wasn’t bad at all.
Work was alright – had my 1×1 with S and he literally just watched me work to try to automate/make my process more efficient; had my 1×1 with E and he said he’d slow down the sales emails as I switch to customer support; interviewed a girl for the SDR position…
Then, I guess there was a crane on top of the building right across from us with a 2 ton cement slab that was on the verge of slipping, so we were evacuated from the office. Really random, right? There was a helicopter too, and apparently they flew in a crane specialist from Seattle. The whole street was blocked off, and the police wouldn’t let anyone in.
It’s actually a pretty serious, especially since there’s a storm is a-brewin’. But honestly, the whole thing was more amusing than anything to me. I got to walked home with my new co-worker, C. She lives like a street away from me, and I really like her! 🙂
After getting home, instead of working, I spent a good amount of time hunting for the Lilly Pulitzer x Starbucks S’well water bottles, calling probably like 10 SF Starbucks locations. Yeah, they all probably thought I was crazy since no one knew what the hell I was talking about. Figures, SF hipsters and techies won’t care.
So I decided to try calling a Starbucks in Roseville and trying my luck there. THEY KNEW WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT! I knew the white suburb was the way to go! Well, good for Starbucks and Lilly for doing their market research before the launch lol. I called Andrew immediately and he said he’ll go right after work!
Anyway, I’m going to head home now. This was really nice – I’m really happy and content with my day.
