A new experience at the cinema. Latest episode of Star Wars in 4D. Seats tilting and vibrating, and wind in the hair. All in harmony with the movie. A new experience. Haven’t really decided if it was better or not yet. But it was, indeed, fun
Japan is introducing MyNumber, a unique identifier for all residents. However, 4712345673D is not MyNumber it is the sequence of Star Wars episodes that Chie and I have watched over the last few weeks, including today’s Episode 7 3D. Hard work
Completed my first week at the new job at Rakuten. Two days of mid-career newcomer’s training. Then three days of getting to know the company, it’s culture and my role. Still a way to go 😉
So far I’ve been riding the train to the office at Rakuten Crimson House. Takes about 40 minutes door-to-door. This morning, however, I rode my bike to the office. A nice uphill from Naka-Meguro at first and ending in a steep downhill to Futakotamagawa about 25 minutes later (for a total of 30 minutes door-to-door). On my way home… It was, of course, the reverse. Steep uphill at first. Ending with a nice downhill towards Naka-Meguro. If you wonder, in between it was quite flat
My routine so far is to leave early to arrive at the office around 7:30. That’s when the breakfast starts (yeah, we have free breakfast). Then, at around 11:30 I have lunch with my newcomer mentor (yes, free lunch too). Around 17:30 – 18:00 I leave to return home. If I work late, there’s dinner starting at 19:00 which, as breakfast and lunch, is free.
My desk is located on the 11th floor in a corner with a view over the Tamagawa river. The view is quite nice.
If you want to know more about my new office, have a look here.
We happened to accidentally throw the remote control for the TV out the window. Maybe this is the Gods way of telling us we should read more?
Happy New (TV-less) Year!
