It was the first day of 2016 and the first day of my full time. 

8:30
Did not know what to do so I was fixing brick texture for westchester. I thought it would be better to gather the rendering files at the same folder. I realized that I would have to move the model from Biennial to the office. I asked Mike about this and he after the meeting and we will move it tomorrow at 2. New employee, entry level, Michele I think she is a friend of Ashley maybe Penn family? She seems so frustrated to pronounce my name maybe she did not have any contacts with Asians before.

9:00
We had a biweekly meeting. So many names I don't know, outside the office. 1415 McCrory Senior housing is off the budget more than 30%. They were talking about whose problem that was but I could not understand the conversation. I need to focus more on the conversation especially on the meetings. I told Pete I had nothing to do so he said I could join Kerr (Highland Green) team but I then moved to help Joseph for Chicat modeling because Maya said she also doesn't have things to do. 

10:00
started working on Chicat. Joseph wanted me to study the door options for gallery. He introduced me NaNawall to check the details of the folding door. I worked to understand and study the specifications and detail from 10:00 to 12:00 and moved out to pay rent.

12:00
I went to Chinatown to pay rent and come back at 1:10 by Uber. It was too costy and time consuming so maybe I need to find a better way to pay the rent.

13:10 
worked on Chicat to make options in sketchup. Mike told me I looked like possessed maybe because my mouth was open while doing sketchup. I would intentionally try not to do that! That would seem so goofy. 

15:45 
Joseph came by to check the progress. I had a very poor communication with my broken English because I was not prepared to communicate. I was embarrassed. He gave me some more things to fix on the model so I kept working. 

15:40 
left the office.

Nanawall: Nice manufacturer for folding doors and sliding doors, good resource
Delray: fancy lightings Jeff liked them
KERF: fancy wood built kitchen etc. Jeff liked them.
