New Developments #100HappyDays

Day 60:  Developing new processes makes me happy.  I worked with a few coworkers to improve a process for getting trainer review for updates to our software and I think it’s going to make everybody’s job a lot easier.  No complaints there!

Day 61:  Seeing where my company is going next makes me happy.  I had the opportunity to preview some development coming in the next version of my company’s software, and it was so cool!  I never imagined I’d work in IT–especially healthcare IT–but I truly enjoy what I do.

Day 62-63:  Spending time with my parents makes me happy.  My parents were in Wisconsin for a motorcycle club event and I got to hang out with them!  I know I post a lot about my parents, but they really are the most wonderful people on the planet and any opportunity I have to see them is really special to me.  We went to a fun ’70s themed dinner and dance and then hung out in the RV talking until almost midnight.

Day 64:  Small classes make me happy.  I taught a class of 10 students today.  Most of our customer classes are somewhere between 20-30 students, so having this smaller class was a welcome reprieve.  Also, I feel like I’m able to really connect with each student when the class size is small–I like being able to answer out of scope questions and spend extra time with them one-on-one.

Day 65:  International travel makes me happy.  My sabbatical is in October, so my mom and I will be heading to…Costa Rica!  I had a call with my travel agent today to go over our itinerary and I am PUMPED!  My last jaunt to a foreign land wasn’t the best experience (Long story short:  I was racially profiled by a hotel employee and accused of being a prostitute.) but I’m really looking forward to this trip.  Most of all, I’m looking forward to traveling with my mom!  This chance to take her around the world is the least I can do to thank her for being the best mother ever.

“Do good. Have fun. Work hard. Make money.” #100HappyDays

Day 12: Fun opportunities at work make me happy. 

The title of this post is one of my company’s slogans: “Do good. Have fun. Work hard. Make money.” I do good every day, teaching people how to use the life-saving software my company provides. I definitely work hard, and make money by doing it. And next week, I get to have fun…by hosting a “radio show” as part of our spring customer conference. 

When I say “radio show” I mean “welcome session with logistics about the event presented in the format of a morning radio show.” But we’ve worked really hard on making it seem like a real radio program–we have commercials recorded and everything! Guess that BA in broadcasting I got is finally getting some use–and I don’t even have to wear a Beaver costume like I did for my college internship at the local country station. 🙂

I saw these “promo posters” for the show and they are so cool! I work at the most awesome place ever!
