Place 72 – Day 98: Vancouver, BC – All The Free Food!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis had a busy day ahead of him! He started the day doing a few tickets from other days as well as a couple of new ones that came in.

Once those were done, he had to order some IT equipment and then continued on imaging an old laptop for reuse.

Curtis finished the laptop and then moved on to something a bit more challenging, once he was done with lunch.

Curtis was trying to get a virtual machine to run on a server which people could all remote in to and use whenever they needed. It took a while to figure out, but he managed to realise that the hard drive was only recognisable on mac and once he plugged it in, the file was in the incorrect format.

Curtis had to re import the file into a free virtual machine manager and re export it as a different file type. This took over an hour to do and whilst he was doing this, he got a colleague to setup a server to put it on, which he will do on Monday.

Curtis went and had some drinks with his colleagues and even had a little bit of whiskey!

Curtis walked home alone as Kim was still at work, but once he got home he went on the xbox and had a long chat with his friend Shane (who was his best man) who he hasn’t spoken to in while.

It was amazing for them to catch up!

Kim’s Day

Kim got in before 9 to ensure that the boardroom was ready for the scout to come in and do their checks. When they came in, Kim showed them upstairs and left him to it.

She realised that she forgot her breakfast, so nipped across the road to the supermarket to grab a chocolate croissant. It was so tasty and just what Kim wanted!

After Kim ate her breakfast, she sorted out some of the fruit for the sangria. She set up 2 jugs with some of the frozen fruit to allow for it to soak up some of the alcohol for the duration of the day.

After this Kim got prepared for her meeting this morning in regards to her project and checked on the scout to make sure he was all set.

In the meeting Kim learned that the project was at a different phase than she was initatly led to believe it was at. Kim thought her role was to encourage other teams to complete certain tasks whereas her role at the moment is to ensure that her department is up to date and can then be used as a model for other departments. She was able to realign her goals and and efforts to reflect what is actually needed now. It was a very successful and useful meeting.

Just after the meeting the catering for another meeting arrived. Kim sorted it all out and let then know that the food was waiting in the meeting room and went back to going through some project stuff. A few minutes later someone came back to Kim with a spare burrito as someone had ordered one and not come to the meeting! What a win!

Kim decided to take her lunch then and relax and enjoy a free crispy chicken burrito. It was a good lunch!

When she finished her lunch Kim continued working with her new information on the project. She then popped out to pick up some cider and wine for the Friday afternoon drinks and pick up the mail.

Kim then organised with the film crew and the building managers how the filming would work logistically.

It was then Kim’s favourite time of week where she got to make sangria and set up all of the drinks! Kim even made a virgin sangria too! She then finished an email, had a chat with a colleague and then joined everyone until 6pm for drinks. It was really easy going and fun!

Pizza & Hidden Figures

We ate a frozen pizza for dinner as it was late and we are lazy!

We watched a couple of YouTube videos and then watched the film Hidden Figures which was a pretty good film!
