As mentioned in previous posts, I am your typical, 20-something-year old corporate drone, working for a nameless large financial conglomerate. There are days where I catch myself spinning around in my swivel chair, wondering how I got here and what I’m doing with my life.
What does brighten up those days of existential crisis are my co-workers. I work with some of funniest, kindest and generally coolest people around. Whether it’s spirited breakdowns of the last Orange is the New Black episode (ahhhhh-mazing), comparing gin tasting notes, sharing weekend debaucheries or just generally shooting shit, they always brighten up cube life.
With this in mind, I swung by my local convenience store this morning and grabbed some bags of candy to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth and left the bags scattered around. All day people were stopping by to grab a handful and chat.
So despite my general crustiness today on Day 5, I’m still going strong. I’m realizing that it doesn’t take a lot of effort to be less of an asshole.

When was the last time you did something nice for your co-workers?
