First Day High

Woke up early morn scampering to find all the knickknacks that once filled up my backpack. I emptied it since March early this year and retired it into a forgotten corner of the house. The quarantine’s end wasn’t in sight, after all. All the things that I think I might need when in the office were all lined up on my desk — they are the following:

  • water tumbler
  • coffee tumbler
  • laptop computer
  • notebook and pen
  • battery pack
  • umbrella
  • digital pouch
  • toiletry pouch
  • shades
  • jacket

The bag? Yes, it’s nowhere to be found. I was about to check a mountain of luggage one by one and thankfully, Jaycelle was half-awake to tell me that it might be in a box full of bags. There it was, my old army green friend.

Pasok, day 1

Our chapter was having a retrospective and goal-setting for the coming year. It was my first day at the office having a work-related agenda. Been there twice before — first, during the job interview and second, when I took home a free office chair.

Numerous virtual meetings and bilas (bilateral meetings) made me feel comfortable around them — Minco (managing director) and Karren (chapter lead). I think I’ll feel the same way when I meet the UX design team themselves (and I’m looking forward to that).
