It was really great, though. Even though I had nothing to contribute to the college football discussion Monday night, I felt like we all bonded as a team, even the remote employees we don't see in the office regularly. I was called the "little brother" of the office because I'm so young and everyone looks out for me, which is nice. I suppose the term was apt in another way, given that someone was a little disturbed that one of my favorite shows was also one of the favorite shows of her seven-year-old son.
Perhaps the best thing that came out of the last few days was bonding with an upper-level colleague I had been helping out for the past week or so; I continued to offer my help as the deadline approached Tuesday night. As a result, not only will she be recommending I get a nice bonus, but if all goes well, I may get to make a poster and attend the biggest conference of the year. I feel that our alliance will be quite beneficial. But shh. Don't tell anyone.
I would have been able to enjoy myself more, however, if I hadn't had a terrible head cold for the past four days. Not that I needed to do anything special, of course.
