Inspired by Amy. 🙂
5:25 – Wake up, look at the alarm, and realize that I have 30 minutes more I could be sleeping.
5:55 – Hit the snooze button.
6:00 – Hit the snooze button again.
6:03 – Get out of bed before it goes off again. Ugh.
6:15 – Get out of the shower and start to get ready. Change clothes two times. Go downstairs and make my lunch. Go back upstairs and change clothes again.
6:45 – Kiss Justin good-bye and head out the door.
7:15 – Park my car.
7:25 – Get to my desk and log into the computer.
7:30 – 8:00 – Make and eat my oatmeal while checking my email and scanning documents into the computer that were left from yesterday.
8:00 – 9:00 – Alternate between trying to figure out how to get my macro to work right and doing other projects people ask me to do.
9:00 – 10:00 – Go to a meeting about the changes coming into the system for how we approve documentation. It’s a very boring meeting.
10:00 – 10:30 – Go back to trying to figure out my macro.
10:30 – 11:00 – Help a coworker try to embed an Excel table into a Word document. Fail.
11:00 – Run to the other side of the building to talk with my Lean adviser about my project and other Lean stuff.
11:30 – Eat lunch and read a book at my desk.
12:00 – Call Justin and a few other people.
1:00 – 2:00 – Think about what my Lean adviser said and work on my macro and work on things people give me.
2:00 – Lead a Lean meeting about schedules. It’s a short one just to let everybody know where I think we’re heading. One of the people I really need to be there is out today.
2:15 – Walk through the demo cabin of the new project. It’s beautiful! Follow a coworker as she takes me through another hanger onto another airplane that they’re finishing up the details on. I’ve been at the company for 3 years and I finally got to step foot onto one of our airplanes!!
3:00 -5:00 – Work on the Excel table crossover into Word problem. Get it so it works on my computer, but it doesn’t when anyone else opens it on their own computer. Work on other things people hand me to do. Get utterly frustrated at Word.
5:00 – 6:00 – Really buckle down and try to work out this macro thing. I think I need to set objects and collections and create a loop. Maybe. How do I do that?
6:00 – Leave work.
6:45 – Get home, change quickly, and walk out the door to meet Justin walking home from the grocery store.
7:00 – Walk Justin home and go out to finish my walk. Get home, shower, clean house.
8:30 – Start to make dinner with Justin.
9:00 – Eat dinner and clean the kitchen. Go back upstairs. Read comics and blogs and listen to Do You Want to Date My Avatar two more times.
10:30 – Write this. And go to bed.
1 thought on “Stepping through my day….”
It might not hurt for you to kindly mention to someone that it would be great if new employees got to look at what they build first hand within the first 6 months of employment. I think it would boost employee morale and generally make people happier if they knew what the company was all about.
