Nomad Worker - Rearrangment

End of Wednesday… two more days to go.
Things didn't work well, easily, and I have to suck it all up until when things get right for me.
I shouldn't complain too much. At least for now.

Maybe I should take a big booze for relaxation.



Instead of booze, I had coffee more than enough for the day.
Found another place where I can stay for work.
Yeah, called NOMAD, right?

Cafe called "KIKKA." It is hostel lounge. Actually, cafe and bar.

I can come this place more often weekday or weekend… That is not that bad idea.

I said, Bar… this place does serve booze and food as well. Perfect, huh!
Maybe, it is missing some sweets?

As you may know, I use iPad Pro for work. Not corporate one.
Someone like me as peon cannot get such luxury. I have to pay for such.
Since it is time between projects, I should utilize this time effectively.

Rearrange the iPad apps.
I take all memo into called "Penultimate" because it gets sync with Evernote.
I can look at note anywhere with other Apple devices even when I do not hold iPad with myself.


Penultimate

Though, I had some frustration with this all.
It is pretty darn old app and hasn't come up with update for a long time. Say, more than several years.
Features and functions are, I guess, old and I get easily frustrated when using.

Thus, made a decision. I dumped that app today.
Instead, I started using different app called "GoodNotes." I guess, that app is best seller in Japan for hand-writing note app.
Man, that is amazing. Lots of neat functions that I can use.


GoodNotes5

Now, I can tell that I definitely enjoy taking notes on iPad!!!
Only complaint out of it is that there is no sync feature with Evernote. That is only missing.
Otherwise, it is perfect.

Nomad worker even spent time to rearrange the work to make it even better environment!!!
Good deal.
Worked effectively? Well, I wish things are more instantly working out for me… things are still unfavorable.

Need a good news on job! Hahaha.

Wow, productive and extra, etc.

Not in the office but in the cafe - I spent most of time for work…



I had serious troublesome work to do for the day.
Yeah, project archieve is my to-do then.
I do not want to anyone disturb myself whatsoever. Thus, easiest way is that I have to isolate myself from the others.

Things went very well, exactly what I aimed at. Good deal.
I did it all pretty much within today.
Very productive. Rare to happen? Hahaha.



Shopped at online mall and those were delivered today.
I found one addition to what I ordered.
Yeah, wrong quantity. One extra is added. Do not know why. Probably, human error.

Anyhow, those goods are for bathroom cleaning.
From tomorrow morning on, my chore is going to be a little be easier.



Salmon roe over the rice… bit bowl meal is the supper.
Very rich food… thanks to tax program…
"Furusato Tax" or "Home Country Tax" does allow local government rewards tax payers with gift.

Good choice, isn't it? This is perfect. Great supper!

Bib Gourmand Restaurant

Started working in nearby Starbucks today… AGAIN.
Yeah, sort "refused" to go to the office since there is nothing scheduled to do there in that place.
Performance cannot be measured based upon where I am. All matters is how I do the job and the RESULT. What else? Hahaha.

New menu to the Starbucks food… was my lunch. Roast pork and cream mustard… hot sandwich.
Not as good as the one in above picture. It was rather mediocre. At least, baguette and cream mustard were a good match.
I may try this, maybe, one more time. 480 yen.

Worked alone. In Starbucks.
No meetings planned. All can be done in the casual manner… however, my appearance for the day is as:

20180131_1 20180131_2

Entirely formal. Pretty much. From suits, tie, pocket chief, and watch… oh boy, must be a big business ahead.
In fact, nothing ahead.
Just felt like putting on something fancy today. You know what I mean.

20180131_3 20180131_4

Good restaurant found… more than good. Great.
Famous cuisine guidebook has posted this restaurant twice before.
So this place is (was?) one of "Michelin Bib Gourmand Restaurants." Highly expected!

It was a small gathering with a young coworker. We joined each other in this restaurant for talk.
Talk rather then festivity is the theme for the night to see how we can move forward our career hereon.
Young fellow does definitely has indefinite potential and his future intension seems very promising.

I am looking forward to witnessing his career development!!!

It was good investment (or merely spending) to make this night be very fun and productive. Made myself more energized as well.

Coffee to Alcohol for the Day

Today, nothing scheduled until 18:45.
It means that I needed to seek what to do until then. Entirely up to myself.
Another boring day it was.

Well, at least I accomplished minor things like schedule sheet creation for new project due up.

Though, all major works are still left behind... intentionally. Well, you can call me lazy ass.
I was. Really.
You know, if you have too much time, you probably cannot push yourself too much. That is my case.

I have to put myself in rush mode by some urgent request or whatever. Otherwise, everything is darn slow.
Please let me know if I can be very productive under such no pressure circumstance.

Went in a cafe on the way to work for breakfast.
I should have had to choose doughnuts instead of sandwich!!! Hahaha.
Good coffee, though.

In fact, I buy coffee beans at this coffee stand, nowadays.

Work gets done with 2 meetings which took place at night.
Then didn't go home straight. Bad intension.
Coffee didn't last til the end of day… and something different was definitely demanded. Yup.

20180130_4 20180130_5

Alcohol amount is not more than required. Just right. Though, quite amount of time has been consumed, already.
When rushed into nearby train station, nothing was waiting but just simple sign said "last train has departed."
Oh boy.

Thus, I decided to walk home… not sure how much in distance I walked then.
Yeah, walk started around 1am…
It was surely interesting walk for me to see the life in the middle of the night like that. Very urban Tokyo life there was.

Big Snow Made a Mess in Tokyo!
