Celebrating 2 months at Automattic!

So it’s been a little over 2 months sine I’ve been working at Automattic.

I’ve been having a blast! I get to help some awesome users and work from some pretty cool places. I also got some shiny new toys to work with courtesy of Automattic. As a bonus I’ve already attended my first WordCamp as an Automattician and got to meet a few of my coworkers at WordCamp OC.

So I decided to put together a little photo collage of my first few months.

A few things I’ve learned:

  • Don’t ever forget your headphones when working at the coffee shop, you’ll regret it.
  • I now know the best parks to work from that have the best reception for my mobile hot spot or are close enough to my home’s wifi router that I still get signal.
  • Working at the pool is super fun and can make for a great swimming lunch break, but try and leave before 3pm to miss the loud kids who are out of school.
  • Sleepy puppies are a great distraction and stress reliever
  • The amount of packages you receive your first week is super fun
  • I have such an amazing supportive core  group of friends who helped me get to this point, and made sure I celebrated it.
  • Nothing beats a home made lunch
  • I have awesome co-workers who are super super smart but hilarious as well
