Vancouver, BC

Place 72 – Day 242: Vancouver, BC – Oculus Quest VR!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis started work and did a few tickets.

He then had an offboard to do and his team meeting, followed by more tickets in the morning.

A lot of the afternoon was admin work.

At around the perfect time for Curtis to finish work, a delivery came for him and it was the Oculus Quest VR headset he had been waiting for, which was expected until Monday!

Curtis got this setup right away and gave it a test run…he really enjoyed it, but had to stop as it was time for a walk!

Kim’s Day

Kim held the midweek catch up and had a great chat with a few people, it was really lovely. Straight after that, Kim had the Health and Safety committee meeting.

Funnily enough there were no office walks or first aid incidents to be reported! It was great to speak to the committee and see if they have any thoughts on how we are doing safety wise and open the floor up for people to air concerns about day to day in the current situation. Kim also mentioned that some first aid guidelines have changed and sent out some information after the call.

Kim then spent most of the rest of the morning sending out messages and drafting up invites and emails. She complied a list of some useful YouTube channels for people to show their kids for education purposes.

After lunch Kim had her 1:1 and it was great to get guidance on a few things and have a general catch up! She followed up this meeting by stating a new wiki page about ergonomics and mindfulness at home, she will have a page outlining good working at home exercise and provide people with good resources on how to stay active and keep an eye on their mental health too.
Kim then had a donut date with someone from the office, in this time it is really good that people are able to connect so easily and just have a chat.

Kim started making plans for emails that she will have to send out when she gets back in the office, while doing so she realised it would be easier to make an info sheet that outlines all the things she needs to tell people. So she drafted it up and will send it on to IT for their input after!

Walk & VR-ing

Once Kim was done with her exercise, we went out for a walk.

It was far too busy, but nice to get outside.

We got back home and made some rice to go with the veggie chilli Kim made yesterday and ate that whilst watching some TV.

After this, we played VR together for the first time and we LOVED it. So glad we have that, now we are in self isolation.

We did that for a while and then watched a little TV before sleeping.


This Time Last Year!
