Each month Pomegranite endeavours to get out of the office as a team and do something different, fun and, most importantly, inspiring. This past Friday we went on an afternoon trip to Hout Bay and had a creative session at the Clay Café.
There have been a number of days in my working life when life has bumped into work, and I have had to dig as deep as it’s possible to dig in order to get up, get dressed, go to work and act like it’s just another day.
I have mixed feelings about those Facebook memory posts. You know the ones, they appear first thing in the morning announcing, with confetti, “on this day four years ago…” and a photo of you in the arms of an ex-boyfriend that makes you cringe inside. That’s no way to start the day. It’s like running into your old self on the street, a twin you enthusiastically wearing your old clothes, obliviously making your old mistakes. You’re confronted with the person you were, a person who has changed. Mostly, I wanted to drag that historical twin into the nearest doorway and pack her away into a cupboard.
After the dust has settled on what was a great WordCamp experience, all the free goodies have now been put to good use and the WordPress world once again exists between me and my monitor, there are some important points that I took away with me from this year’s event.
