MY NEW OFFICE IS SO PRETTY!
I know this is silly to say, but if I am going to spend 40 hours a week there why not appreciate the fung-shuai! The walls and carpet are a light tan/yellow color, the cubicles are a light tan with the top quarter GLASS! You do not feel like you are in a cage... you feel like you are in a sugar cookie surrounded by Boston's skyline... it is fab. All the furniture is super modern and clean-lined AND the floors are connected with floating light wood stairs to make the company feel more connected (there is always the elevators too though)!
There are 2 mini "cafes" with free treats for us hard workers, and 1 main cafeteria type with caterers! They make fresh coffee so we do not have to battle over who's turn it is to fill the pot!
Speaking of coffee... we get brewed Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, 25-30 flavors of Flavia single serving packets, and an espresso/cappuchino machine!!! FREE
Vending machine with sodas, water, selzer... FREE
Fresh fruit... FREE
Vending machine with other snacks... 50 cents (I blame the economy but still pretty cheap!)
But wait! There's more!
We have a "wellness room" which is a mini hotel type room in the office for NAPS!
There is a CLEAN shower, in case SOMEONE forgets deoderant and would like to freshen up.
AND there is a "Mother's room" for women who would like a comfortable room with a lounge chair and a personal refigerator for pumping and storing breast milk.
The best part? I got nervous and took my fav First Response test today and it said? NO BABY! So I will not be needing that mother's room... yet!
Final holiday weight count: 8 POUNDS!
I did need to gain some weight since stress and being busy made me a little bit too skinny, but now I need to make sure 8 pounds does not become 18 pounds :-P
I will not worry about it yet, and just keep doin' my thang, but if this trend continues, somebody please pull the ice cream, cookies, brownies, and peanut butter away from my death grip :-)
I am currently living alone, but new roommates move in next week. I miss my best friends very much... our apartment is so sad with our decorations and pictures everywhere :-/ I am going to look on the bright side because now I get to visit my loves at their new amazing apartments in new exciting cities! Cheers to old friends and amazing memories! and cheers to new friends and even more memories to come in 2010!
