We moved office today, and this is my little goodbye ode to the first place I worked in after graduating, and a beautiful office and setting that set a very high standard for how I define “workplace” and “office”. I also wanted to kick off a new writing project, called “Hundreds and Hundreds”, which is basically where I aim to write a hundred 100-word snippets about things that mean something to me. Here’s #1.
0.01: Moving Office
Thank you for the squirrels, cats, the monkey that climbed into the rafters, and the family of bats that lived there. For the babies and puppies I’d see every day. For the dead butterfly, it taught me life is short, and to live lightly.
Thank you for when a cute boy had lunch with me on his birthday and ate my too-minty chocolate mousse. For the moonlit picnic we had three years later. For the ukulele man. The bamboo grove. For the magical misty fairy-tale during the monsoon, and a sparkling wonderland during Christmas.
For this, and so much more.
