June 1, Menlo Park, CA: Back to the grind. After such a great weekend, it was kind of surreal to be at work straight off the airplane this morning. But I was reminded how lucky I was in today's 1-on-1 with my manager. We talked at length about how great the workshop was, and she actually asked me whether there were classes that I had considered taking locally. THEN she suggested that we could work around a class schedule if I saw something that I would want to take, because she can see how much I enjoy photography. Too good to be true. I love that she is so incredibly thoughtful. I feel very lucky that she knows how important my relationship and my passion are to me. And I love even more that I feel like I can be open about it all at work.
