Place 72 – Day 32: Vancouver,BC – Costco & More Kitchen Stuff

Curtis’ Day

Curtis woke up with a nose bleed, so not the best start to the day!

Luckily, he still got to the office on time.

Curtis began by configuring a Mac for a user getting a replacement and then had to go and look at the lounge area of the office and remove redundant equipment as well as plan what will be done with the area from an audio/visual standpoint.

Curtis had a quick 1 to 1 to check how he was going on and then he had to check multiple meeting rooms to check their visual equipment was working correctly and he gained a few future projects from that!

After lunch, Curtis completed a few tickets and then had to get some laptops and test them for donating.

Kim’s Day

Kim got into work and started by setting up some of the fruit.

When she settled down at her desk, Kim decided to rearrange her desk and organise some of the computers files. During this, a request came in for breakfast catering so Kim and colleague headed across to the fancy supermarket across the road to buy many pastries.

After a little while, Kim then headed into a meeting to finish off the rest of the orientation.

Then suddenly it was lunch time! Kim joined the rest of her team up on the rooftop terrace to enjoy some sun and have some lunch. It was lovely to just sit and have a chat with people.

After lunch, Kim headed to Costco with 3 colleagues to get some breakfast items and snacks for the Hackathon thats happening from Wednesday to Friday.

The team took 2 taxis back because so much stuff had been bought!

When they got back, Kim was met by a few other employees who helped take the many bags and boxes upstairs. Once they were upstairs, Kim helped empty and organise all of the food, including helping move a small fridge from one part of the office to another to store all of the cheese!

The unpacking room roughly an hour which left them with an hour left in the day so Kim managed to get some time to go through her emails and get a bit more practice with the systems she will be using.

Screws

We had to collect some screws from the guy we bought our TV from as the base requires certain screws. He was in Chinatown so we walked there together after work.

We got the screws and then briefly went to Costco to find out about the card and how to get one.

More Kitchen Stuff

We walked back home and dropped off our stuff and then went back out to get some more things for the kitchen. We tried a dollar store but that wasn’t great so we went to homesense and got stuff there.

We came back home and Kim made fajitas for dinner, which were incredible!

New Blinds

Our landlord came by in the evening to provide us with some new blinds as well as speak to us about anything we wanted fixing. He will be coming by sometime next week to put the new blinds up, which is great!

Swim

In the late evening, Kim went for a relaxing swim in the pool we have in our building. Kim really enjoys having a pool so she can swim when she wants!

We watched some TV and headed to bed. We have no plans for tomorrow evening, which we are very excited for.


This Time Last Year!
