And thus begins my summer

I set my alarm last night for 7:30. Boy, was that a pain… but I could barely contain my excitement when I woke up this morning.

After showing up at work at 8 am today (ouch), I got a quick tour of Google’s Boulder office. It’s actually bigger than I thought - it currently spans three different buildings! The Boulder office isn’t big enough to have their own cafe, so they have catered food. I had a morning breakfast of approximately five different kinds of fruit, and then I sat down to work through some tutorials.

However, the first thing I did was struggle with setting up Eclipse for an hour and a half. For some reason, despite the plugins being installed, Eclipse was refusing to recognize/install them. So, an hour and a half later, I finally had everything set up and could do some work.

Lunch was at picnic tables on the roof of the building, with a breathtaking view of the mountains - I’m going to bring my camera tomorrow and snap some photos. After lunch, I realized that my monitors were blocking a window that also had a beautiful view of the mountains, so I spent 10 minutes or so rearranging my desk. Now if I look one way I can see my work, and if I look the other I can see the mountains. I finished up the day with more tutorials and walked back home, excited to wake up tomorrow and do the exact same thing.
