Today is my first day on the job, and beyond my colleagues that I’ve met and the work I’ve been assigned, nothing has made a bigger impression on me than the location of where I’ll be working for the next two and a half months. I have always felt I do my best work when I am in a space that I feel comfortable in. That’s probably true for most people but personally, being in a space that has an abundance of sunlight and natural beauty in the background has always had a significant positive impact on my mood. That is why I am especially grateful to be working in an office with such a pleasant environment.
My office is located within Kantrida Pools, a beautiful modern swimming and training facility located on the edge of the Adriatic Sea. Just outside my office is a deck that opens up to a beautiful view of the Adriatic with Rijeka, the city where I live, to the southeast, and the town of Opatija and the Istrian Peninsula to the southwest. I am eager to discover what I will be working on for the summer, but no matter how things turn out, this gorgeous view will always be there to refresh me.
