365.174 {Networking}

I had one of those networking functions after work tonight at the offices of The Atlantic magazine in midtown. You know the kind of event: free drinks, little to no food, and everyone glancing down at your chest/nametag before deciding to say hello. I actually ended up talking more with my counterparts in the adult group of my company than I did with people at other companies. But it still feels like networking because we "children's books" folk are in a different building and tend to feel like the step-children in our company. It ended up being a good time and I picked up an interesting new book in the process: The Beautiful Struggle by Ta-nehisi Coates.

 

Sorry for the cop-out of a shot: my teeth were purple from red wine and I was too hungry to take a proper shot.

    Sounds tiring! Glad you ended up having a good time, though! It's a nice surprise when work stuff ends up being fun. ;)

    Oh I hate networking, but it's so important - even within your company! That totally counts.

    I always have to psych myself up to GO to networking things, but I have a good time at most of them once I get there!
  • Erin 6y

    good for you on networking!

    Those functions are one thing that I miss about being the "foreign correspondent" of our company -- I'm the only one in my office and all of my coworkers are a three-hour drive away.
