This week marks the beginning of our quest to construct the technical advisory council and work on our business plan. Since we are not working on the book day in and day out anymore, and there is much less of a “concreate” deadline that we have to meet, we have had some time to do group work. Every so often during our group work sessions, we will take a break and take a short walk outside. During one of these much-needed walks, we stumbled across what I now know to be called Zorbs. Zorbs are essentially a human sized hamster ball that you can run into stuff with, most people also play soccer in them. Naturally, as 3 guys would, we threw on the Zorbs and began running all out at each other. On this day, I hit my boss Michael Laine off his feet while in Zorbs.
Its not very often that I get the opportunity to do something like that so I lunged at the chance to shoulder check my boss. While these moments are often sparse in terms of occurrence, I find that these little breaks during the day are some of my favorite memories of LiftPort. I have never had such an appreciation for breaks during the work day. I think it’s probably because it allows Michael the chance to get to know us, which he capitalizes on regularly which feels good as ann intern to know that he cares about us.
I know this one was short but till next time world!
