Take a number, please

Yesterday I worked from home to improve productivity and save 1 1/2+ hours of  driving.  Today when I got to work, it was quite literally 30 minutes before I had four designers lined up at my desk for quick consultation, all with different questions on different projects.  While helping those four in sequence, another two got in line!

Made it to the top

Over the past six or seven months, I've led or been deeply involved in more presentations than I could ever have imagined.  Some of the earlier ones were small group affairs with UED managers, and we've slowly been working up the chain through directors, VPs, and recently to a senior VP.  Today, we finally made it to the top, presenting our backstory, progress, and plans to the company president and his direct reports.  I'm just glad that we've reached the end of the line on this particular little trek, because now I can start pretending to forget how to use PowerPoint so people will stop bugging me for help with their slides.  Trust me, you never want to be known as a PowerPoint wiz.
