One Year Anniversary

No, no, not my wedding anniversary (though that's coming up in a few weeks and I'll let you know then): My first year as a full time employee here at Sonlight.

But I've worked here on and off for, oh, at least a decade now.
And I was a "beta tester" before that <smile>.

So, for the first time, I got a card, a candy bar, and a gift card. How cool is that?

Pretty cool.

Happy Anniversary!

Other than that, today has been a couple long meetings and lots of little things that kept interrupting. And that can make it feel less productive than it's been. And if you've had a day like that, remember: You really have done a lot. And, even if you haven't, that's okay. There's grace and flexibility for that.

Yey! Happy Work Anniversary!

Congrats, Luke! Those interruptions are quite trivial when you consider the bonus of getting a PAYDAY! I can't remember the last time I had one of those....

Hey. That is a nice touch at Sonlight. Pretty impressive in terms of your corporate culture!

Happy anniversary!

I'd say you were pretty much one of a very small pool of the ultimate beta testers. Maybe that's actually alpha testers.

Happy Anniversary at Sonlight.
I like the beta tester title, that's clever :)

Congratulations Luke and Happy Anniversary. May you have many, many more.

Blessings to you and Brittany.

Luke Holzmann said...

Thank you, one and all!

I used to say guinea pig, but I do like beta tester better ...though, yeah, it probably was more like alpha <smile>.

I hadn't had a PAYDAY in a long while. I went home and split it with Brittany <smile>.
