What does your office look like?
I was recently reading through some jobs descriptions online, and came across one that explained the physical requirements of the position (a desk job), which was explained as working in an environment without any windows at a small desk. For a long second, I thought to myself, hmmm…this does not sound like a very stimulating or creative environment. Maybe for some, this is the work environment in which they are accustomed and are comfortable in, however, I have worked from home, almost my entire professional career. This got me thinking about how work, work habits, and work environments have changed and how they affect our productivity.
We are almost through the first month of 2015. Can you believe it?! How are your New Year’s resolutions coming along?
Many people made their new year’s resolutions:
- Lose weight
- Exercise more
- Spend less money
I love farmers' markets. There is a great energy with a variety of vendors and shoppers. Since 2009, I have been going to the Kapiolani Community College (KCC) Saturday morning farmers' market.
I definitely have my go to foods that I look forward to but there are a lot of new food vendors that I am looking forward to trying. My two favorite things to eat are served on a stick – sausage and corn.
In Hawaii, when something new opens, whether it be a restaurant or attraction, everyone is lined up waiting to experience it. With the addition of a Wind Tunnel at The Groove, opening to public this weekend, people will want to line up to try it out.
I had the opportunity to see the Wind Tunnel in action at a media preview last week. Now people can get the chance to experience skydiving, without having to jump out of a plane.
Have you ever had that experience as you are falling asleep and you feel like you are falling off a cliff? Free Fall!
I attended the 12th Annual Waikiki SPAM Jam for the first time. All I knew to expect was a lot of SPAM. It was exciting to see that there were 20 restaurants and several food trucks participating in this year’s event and celebrating something that is an essential element of living in Hawaii, SPAM. It was a revelation to see what creative and spam-tastic dishes they were serving. There were over 60 SPAM inspired dishes served. Definitely something for everyone to indulge in.
The SPAM Jam started around 4pm and Kalakaua Ave. was already filling with people at 3:30pm. There was this great energy with people dressed in their SPAM gear.
The weather has not been the best recently in Hawaii. I mean, rain and wind is what we consider bad weather. And yes, it does seem cold! Regardless of this bad weather, Sid and I were determined to get out and do our hike as planned to the Lulumahu Falls. Our journey on Sunday was much shorter than we had planned.
It had been a long time since my love and I had a date night and we decided we would experience Chef Chai’s for the first time. I had heard good things, but the first time I saw the menu, nothing really jumped out at me, until I saw some pictures on Instagram that had me dreaming of Chai’s.
They brought us chicken satay with a creamy, nutty, peanut sauce. Great little starter.
I hate to admit, but Saturday (4/19/2014) was the first time I went to the Lighthouse since moving to Hawaii in 2003. I had seen it from a sail boat but always wanted to be closer.
There are so many great hikes on Oahu. Problem is, some of the best ones are illegal and on private property! I am not one to do things illegally unfortunately.
There were a number of locals and tourists taking advantage of the sweeping views that this hike has to offer. It is a gradual incline the whole way up, really working out the legs, but not difficult. At only 2 miles (round trip), there is a lot to see, with a different view of the east side of the island, and not strenuous.
