Finally! Something I know I'm good at!

Monday, April 21, 2008

When I was at work on Thursday, Shelley, the ASID student chapter president, called me and told me about a designer who needed their materials rooms organized. I thought that this sounded like a great opportunity to make money and add something to my resume. So on Saturday I went to their office, along with Sarh, another student who used to work for the designers.
I have never seen anything that looked so horrible! When I talked in, I thought they had three materials rooms and two offices, but one the designers kept refering to "Joe's office" and I couldn't figure out where this office was. Then I realized that the office she was talking about was one of the rooms that I thought was a materials room. There was so much stuff (fabric, bags filled with who knows what, tile samples, etc) in that office that I didn't even see a desk in the room. So I looked in the room again, and I could faintly make out the shape of a desk, computer, printer and chair. But I had to look really closely. I don't understand how people can live like that, or get anything done!

Sarah and I worked on the room with the hanging fabrics. When we arrived, you couldn't even see the floor. Fabric covered every surface. When we left, we had 6 large boxes of discontinued fabrics (which they don't want to throw away, for some reason) and about 6 boxes of new fabrics. Maybe if they threw anything away there would be room for the new fabrics, but right now it's just sitting in the boxes. I thought about sneaking the discontinued fabric in trash bags and throwing it out the window, but Sarah didn't think that it would be a good idea. There was even a box of fabric that had water damage, but the designers didn't want to throw that stuff away either. Crazy people!

The pictures I posted, show our work in progress. Don't worry, those aren't the after pictures.

  1. Becky,
    I just read your whole blog. I enjoyed it very much! Hey, don't worry about the "hours on a 1/2 in picture" -- sometimes that detail will pay off, sometimes not. Your ability and skill is to determine when it matters.
    Thanks for sharing how you feel. I miss you. - Dad
