Kicking the Day Off

A really quick post as I unpack into my office and rush off to something on the north end of campus. One of the best parts of my routine here at the University of Waterloo is that I get to walk to work – through an alpaca farm. My walk to work is decidedly un-digital: my time to unpack, think about what I’m going to do, and look at animals. Sounds hokey, but it’s really relaxing.

I walk through a farm on days when I can't cut through the forest (i.e. rainy/snowy days like today).

And then when I get to my nice, warm office – which is surprisingly looking messy again despite cleaning it last week – I’m ready to work. Or in this case, drop my stuff off to head to a meeting. :)

Chances are if we've collaborated or chatted during work hours, this is where I'm doing it.
