Place 72 – Day 40: Vancouver, BC – Free Cookies

Curtis’ Day

It was a very warm day today and when Curtis walked to work he worked up a sweat!

When Curtis got to work he had an email regarding an issue with a mac which he dealt with and then he ended up getting a lot of tickets come in and got most of the sorted before lunch.

Curtis had a team meeting right before lunch which was productive and informative.

After lunch, Curtis’ day became a bit less busy but he did then notice a warning light on a server so he worked with a colleague to get that sorted.

Curtis then had 2 informative meetings in which he learned a few new things and then he walked home.

It was another hot walk and when he got home he relaxed for a bit before sorting out the recycling into type piles.

Kim’s Day

Today, Kim walkedto work all lonely because she had to get in early to man reception.

Kim got started on setting up for the day, putting out fruit etc. and then had a few questions for reception. By the time Kim finally ended up in the HR department to start her day it was 10!

This also didn’t last long. While doing some admin, Kim needed some help from the front desk with something so went back out there to go over a few things. While Kim was getting help, a lady from the Marriott popped by to make an introduction and say hello to Kim and another colleague. It was lovely to put a face to the name and she even came with cookies! They were delicious snicker doodle cookies and did not last long in the office!

Kim then eventually went back and continued with some admin.

Kim spent the rest of her morning and early afternoon after lunch on more of her project, just familiarising herself with the applications and how things work.
Kim then had a meeting about some HR procedures and even had a chance to help with some of the onboarding process.

Just towards the end of the meeting, some of Kim’s colleagues were walking around playing music and handing out ice creams! What a great way to celebrate mid afternoon on a Wednesday.

Kim kept herself busy for the rest of the afternoon.

She left early due to arriving early and took this opportunity to head to the bank to collect her credit card. One very hot train journey and 20 minute walk later, Kim had collected her credit card and headed home via 2 buses and the supermarket. She had to pick up some veggies!

Dinner

We sort of did nothing for a while and then decided we would make dinner.

We had pork and egg fried rice. Curtis made the rice as per usual and Kim cooked up the vegetables and meat.

TV

After dinner we just watched some TV and Kim showered to get ready for tomorrow.


This Time Last Year!
