Place 72 – Day 454: Vancouver, BC – Facilities Project

Curtis’ Day

Curtis had a chat with someone right away in the morning as they had deleted a lot of shared files, so Curtis had to work getting those back (which took about an hour).

After that, Curtis had a Norwegian lesson which went really, really well!

After the lesson, Curtis did a few tickets and then had some lunch.

After lunch, the day slowed down for Curtis so he got some admin done and a bit of other work. He had to investigate some quarantined files for someone and see if they are safe to allow.

Kim’s Day

To get ready for the weekly company wide meeting Kim added to her notes she has been making over the past week and checked last weeks notes.

After the meeting Kim joined another meeting that was going over a job description for a potential new role. It was really interesting as yesterday Kim had made a job description template and it was really fun to see the few things she had thought of already and also learn the many things she had forgotten or overlooked.

For the last part of the morning Kim spent some time arranging meetings for Kims facilities project that she will be working on in the afternoon, which was interesting. Then Kim wrote up and sent out the invite for the winter party, which was great as it was something that Kim had wanted to get sorted for a few days!

Before Kim went out for the afternoon she wrote up a lot of the information for the connect four tournament that she will be running over the next few weeks / months. She didn’t manage to send out the information, but she got a lot of it ready!

Kim then went out and met her colleague for the facilities project and attended a few meetings. It was a really interesting and fun afternoon that Kim will be able to say more about at some point!

After all the meetings Kim and her colleague went to a craft store to pick up a few items for an upcoming event. When she got home Kim wrote up a summary of the day and then sent out the information and sign up sheet for the connect four tournament! Today was a long, successful and very fun day!

Evening

Once Kim got back home and finished her little bit of work, we had the final bit of lasagna and watched some TV. That was pretty much all we did for the evening!

Place 72 – Day 209: Vancouver, BC – Panic Buying Has Begun!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis had an incredibly busy day.

He started with a quiet day, just setting up a laptop for someone.

He then was told that the company would be announcing company wide office closures as a preventative measure to COVID-19, in a similar vein to how Kim’s place is doing it.

Curtis had to deal with a bunch of things for the closure. Some tickets, getting things prepared like laptops in case they are needed as well as helping with a few other things to assist with the sharing of information and storage of information, too.

Right at the end of the day, once Curtis got a second, he did an offboard and had a Guinness, which was bought for Tuesday to do a St. Patrick’s Day celebration, but as that isn’t happening, he and his colleague had one today!

Kim’s Day

Kim went off to UBC today to do some more learning!

She was in a different classroom today, but still did some learning for her project management course.

She met Curtis after he was done at work and we walked home together.

Panic Buying

We went up to the shop when we got home. Not to panic buy, but just to get a few things for dinner and some stuff we needed.

When we got there, there was very little of use left as everyone is panic buying!

We got what we could and got out of there.

For dinner, we had chicken wraps with lots of salad and vegetables in them, with a Nando’s and ranch sauce, it was actually pretty great.

We just sat around and watched TV…we’ll both be working from home until further notice, so that’ll be fun.
