Saturday at the GM was free of classes & projects, and set aside for activities and/or free time. So today I went shopping at a nearby outlet mall, then tried acupuncture for the first time. Later in the afternoon I participated in an “escape the room” challenge installed in a hotel room here at the resort. After dinner I spent hours in the party suite getting to know a bunch of coworkers I hadn’t managed to meet yet (even after 5+ days here) and spent time with the ones that have become great friends over this week. It’s been a great experience. I’m exhausted, yet exhilarated, and so thankful to be here and to work at Automattic. This place is great & these people are fantastic.
