I have never worked in an office before so my reference for office life comes from the show The Office, the British version starring Ricky Gervais, as well as the American version starring Steve Carrell.
So for my first day at our ITM office I was aware that offices aren’t always the most normal of places. However, I was not prepared for #officedogs. Yes, people brought their dogs to the office, mind you we share a large building with a bunch of other businesses, so it wasn’t any of the ITM staff bringing their dogs to work. Although I do think Julia’s dog Baylee would love to play around with #officedog Hunter.
It was such a strange concept for me to see dogs at the office, it really took me by surprise. Don’t get me wrong, dogs are great, but in terms of me being productive, the office was not the most suitable place for one.
Office dynamics are always interesting with all their different characters, as you would gather from watching either of “The Office” shows. I have yet to get to know all the characters at the office, but I’m sure I will in time.
I love the space we are in (there are two Keurigs!!) and definitely enjoy working there. Except our office is right beside a massive flight of steps and every time someone goes down the steps there is a slight shake of our office, which totally freaked me out the first time it happened. I almost thought I was imagining it when Angie told me she had no idea what I was talking about at first. I guess she is used to it now and doesn’t notice it like I did.
We are organizing a Launch Party for our office Media Mall, it’s happening tomorrow evening! You should come, free food and drinks, and see our office dog Hunter.

This is what our lovely Angie designed for Christmas on our feature wall at the office. Gorgeous!
I can’t wait to see what she’s done with it for tommorrow’s Launch Party!
