What's your daily routine like?

I wake up at around 8:00 or 9:00am and get to the office before 10:00.   If I was setting up new displays, I'd have to start my day much earlier, probably getting to a branch at 7:00 or 8:00am, then going to the office after.  

My day then consists of checking up on the different branches, coordinating with our suppliers, having meetings, and designing and brainstorming for new display ideas. I also do store visits; I can spend a whole day hopping from one branch to another.  I get out of work around dinner time, and right now, I go home to work on the next display.  My house is flooded with materials for them! I work on that after dinner, and squeeze in some reading before I get too tired to continue, and just sleep.

What do you do on your spare time? 

Crafts! Somehow, even if I do those kinds of things for work, that's also what I like to do in my spare time.  I also love watching movies, and I could spend a whole day looking at design blogs! 


What do you do after work?

After work these days, I just work on my next display project.  When I don't have one to work on, I like seeing my friends and watching movies.

What do you do on weekends?

Same things as after work and in my spare time—work on the display, see friends, catch up on some reading, watch movies.  If there's an interesting event or exhibit to go to, the weekend is when I attend. That's also when I get to shop!

What are your other interests? Hobbies?

I love anything art and design related, and as I've mentioned, I dabble in as much crafts as I can.  I started a blog, The Art Department, about my adventures and mishaps with crafts and try to chronicle that part of my life.  I also take pole dancing classes.  I love it! It's the only form of exercise I've successfully stuck with.
