For the past few days, I’ve been in Brooklyn, NY with the rest of the Happiness Hiring team for our annual team meetup where we get together to discuss and improve upon our processes as a team.
Because my teammates are amazing, they came to New York, near me, for our meetup. During the day, we focused on work and in-person discussions; at night, we spent some time exploring New York, and generally having a wonderful time together.
We had a massive blizzard with just enough time for no one’s flights to be affected (yes!) but for there to be lots and lots of snow on the ground. The weather warmed up over the weekend, which meant we were able to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge together and visit the 9/11 Memorial, which was a first for me.
I love, love, love getting to see my coworkers. We work so well together (it’s been almost five years!) and seeing each other in person is always so nice, easy, and fun. Being able to explore “my” city together was really cool and feels a little surreal. All those smiles are incredibly sincere and I can’t wait until we’re all together again 🙂
