I went to Fort McMurray Alberta this weekend for my cousin’s wedding.
I hadn’t seen my cousins in about ten years so the family reunion was welcomed. One thing I noticed as we all caught up is the women in my family. We all run a thousand miles a minute, we have good souls, all of us. We’re strong and love to learn and know how to fight to enjoy our lives. We’re smart and independent and care deeply of others. The women in my family are the ones people write stories about.
I’m so happy to be one of them.
Had my first milestone meeting with my client for the re-brand. A lot was covered we were in the boardroom for two hours straight. But in the end we’re on the same page, we both want to haul ass, and bring a better image to the department.
I’ve been doubting my ability to speak with people because of all the craziness with groups this past year…the doubt is leaving everyday if this job.
Happy is an understatement.
Group assignments where you end up doing a majority of the work
Group assignments where they do the work they’re assigned, but it’s incorrect
Group assignments where you have to be the motivator in the group, despite being a procrastinator yourself
Group assignments where you’re the good kind of procrastinator that gets shit done
Group assignments where during the last minutes before it’s due, they’re sending rough drafts to you to check and edit
I had to, I mean I really just had to.
I’ve started my new position as web and social media coordinator for the Applied Research and Innovation department at Algonquin.
I’ve said before that I love my industry because I am always learning, here is a perfect example: Wordpress being a jerk because Algonquin’s IT department can’t handle their lives and makes custom themes that don’t play nice with Wordpress software.
What am I learning you may ask?
A lot about patience oh and how to rock the socks off of Wordpress despite everything. And have gained some serious respect for web designers, who are probably laughing at this post.
