Work Lessons

Today is my one month anniversary of working at my new job! Happy anniversary to me :)

Clearly, I like celebrating anniversaries. (Remember the huge fuss I made when this blog turned one?) I think it’s important to mark occasions when you have accomplished something, no matter how silly or trivial it is. It reminds you of how far you’ve come since starting, and I think that is an interesting way of self-reflection.

This past month has been great! I like my new job - I am constantly busy, which I appreciate (I can’t stand being bored or not having enough to do), and best of all, I really like the people who I work with. I never realized how truly important it is to have a fun and supportive group of colleagues who you enjoy collaborating with - it makes my day so much more pleasant!

So a month! WOO. I have learned many important things at my new job - both serious and silly. Some examples:

I have learned how to work our complicated website.

I have also learned how to kill a roach with a can of bathroom spray.

I have learned all about our organization’s style and branding guide.

I have also learned that the Trimana coffee shop in our building has Twitter.

I have learned about all the different services and programs our organization offers.

I have also learned the importance of using the buddy system while navigating the whole new world of Koreatown.

Just a few examples :) see how my world has already expanded in just one month? Can’t wait to see what lessons the future holds!

Happy Anniversary!!
Don't forget about City Print, throwing money at the problem and hoarding lessons. Wow, if we did this in a month, imagine what we can do in a year!
