Work hard, play hard - feet up Friday

feet up friday

Work@RAMP is about being able to work hard, but also being allowed to really revel in your accomplishments; the moments where you get to step back and admire the effort you’ve put into a project. And let me tell you: when you finish up a set of project “to-do’s” late in the evening, somehow you can still be amped up enough to write a blog post (ahem, this one).  That’s what I enjoy about being a Front End Developer here -- the work community fosters a culture where you feel energized and passionate about what you are doing, even if that’s just making sure the design you are working on looks the same in a Nexus 7 as it does in an iPad Mini. Coming into a Friday, you’ve gone about a million miles an hour all week, and that’s why you work just a little bit harder; so you can slow the pace down on Friday and have that ‘Feet Up Friday’ moment. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s something picking up traction via photo posts on all of your quintessential social media outlets, like Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr (Instagram too!).
