Back to work

by Carla

At Pomegranite we eased back into things with a first week consisting of half-days and ending with an Inspiration Day. Getting back into the swing of work is always challenging after the festive season. Our method, we think, is much kinder on the soul. We managed to find joy in returning to work while holding onto the replenishment that comes from two weeks of napping, eating ice cream, afternoon beers, and swimming.

Ode to the English grad

Ode to the English grad

The task, it seemed impossible,
The odds were almost nil.
How could my reading of Keats
Translate to those obsessed with excel spread sheets?

The Things That Matter

By Sarah

Some days everything flows and work is amazing and it feels like everything is just as it should be.

Other days, it’s just not. Not even close. On those other days, there are a few things that really matter.

Inspiration Afternoon at the Clay Café

By Carla

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.

If you’re not happy, what’s the point?

By Sarah

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.

It all starts somewhere (the reminder of a Facebook memory)

By Liz

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.

WordCamp 2015: Five things I took home with me

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.

A few observations about Cape Town’s 2015 WordCamp

eCommerce is a lot more fun than you would think.

The last speaker on the first day was just the greatest. First of all he was inspirational – he said things like “the limit exists in our mind only” and “why not?” instead of ‘why?’ And my personal favourite: “before the existence of the black swan was an accepted fact people thought, hey, these people are crazy, maybe we should send them back to Australia!” He was funny and inspirational at the same time.

Perks of a co-working space

Pomegranite is a wonderful company to work for in and of itself. Another great experience I have had since starting here is the discovery attached to working in a co-working building. Here are, in my opinion, the top five perks of co-working life:

Pomegranite’s 2nd Birthday Party

On Friday 21 August we celebrated Pomegranite’s 2nd birthday! Our celebration took the shape of a Pomegranite-themed quiz night. We were having so much fun that it slipped our minds entirely to document the event. In the endless sea of tedious office party Facebook albums we will offer you an alternative, albeit an accidental one. We have a few snapshots from a number of different sources (this accounts for the very necessary black and white editing), a slide or two from the quiz and the fantastic speech given by Sarah on the night. Enjoy:

The real joys of job-hunting

At the end of this month I will have been working at Pomegranite for 3 months. This, for me, is a reason to celebrate.

I began the year jobless. In February I started working at an awful company (which lasted for a day and a half), and then I searched for a job in my disillusioned state until the middle of May. In the middle of May I made my acquaintance with Pomegranite and hooray for me – I landed the job.

The office yoga revelation

I sometimes feel like the internet is one big tangle of shiny links that catch your eye, pulling you through door after door as you click, click, click, scroll, scroll, scroll. I try to limit this online rabbit-hole-ing to specific times of the day, otherwise I’d never get any work done. Because before you know it, you’ve delved into the depths of a stranger’s engagement shoot (when you know that you think the whole idea of an engagement shoot is a bit much), but there you go, devouring online content as you devour your lunch, forgetting that there is a real world, complete with real live people, on the other side of your earphones.

Five things you should know about Windows 10

I have never written a review on anything other than a book or an academic paper and I am by no means a technologically with-it person. I say this now to give you fair warning. What I am is a very slightly above average user of a computer who just received her free upgrade of Windows 10. So, here are five things that I think you should know about Windows 10:

Reconsidering the internet: Authority, accuracy and ethics NEW

I am not naturally inclined to understanding computers or the internet. I get it, but I also don’t. Before I started working at Pomegranite, the amount of time I spent on my laptop and more specifically The Internet was minimal (maybe an hour a day if at all). This hour would consist of checking my emails – as I was at that time frantically searching for a job – and having a quick browse through my Facebook feed. I spent the majority of my time watching yoga videos (Yoga with Adriene – definitely check her out).
