This entry is for Manda’s A Day in the Life linkup. I’m cheating a little bit and using pictures from my 5-day black and white challenge on instagram, but I chose pictures of things I’d encounter everyday.
I’m actually in the middle of a transition, so this typical day won’t be lasting much longer. This is my last week at my internship as I’m starting a new job as a front-end developer for another agency. I’m very excited and super grateful. I went to school for a completely different major (Biology), but I decided that med school wasn’t gonna be for me. Web development has always been my passion, so I decided to pursue it earlier this year.
I know I’ve been very, very lucky taking this career path. We’ve just moved to a big city, and that meant tons more opportunities. It didn’t take me long to land a kickass internship. This agency opened so many doors for me. I’m forever grateful for everything they’ve done for me. Of course, we’ll be staying in touch.
Enough words, here be pictures!
This is my view as I climb out of the subway station every morning. The building is the Philadelphia City Hall.
I got free lunch at work! This is the Portofilio bowl from Hiro Ramen House not too far from my workplace.
Woody, the office cat! I’m gonna miss this grumpy furry baby. He’s really old now. The vet estimates him at 19 years old. He was a stray cat that just wandered in when the head of the agency was still working out of his home. He took Woody with him when they moved to an office, and now he’s living in Center City! What a lucky cat.
He likes to wander into my desk but hates getting picked up. It’s okay Woody, I have enough love for both of us.
I have a Thunderbolt display at work and DAT CRISPNESS AND SCREEN REAL ESTATE. I want one for myself, but it’s so freaking expensive and I could barely afford my refurbished Macbook Air. :’D Plus, I already have a dual-monitor Windows computer. Maybe I should just get a 4k monitor for that.
Taking the subway home. It’s been decorated for Christmas! Also, it’s very hard to take a good picture on a moving train with my phone. :<
