Office Move Day #1: Monica's Memories.....

In an effort to keep you all plugged into what's happening with the San Diego Asian Film Foundation Office Move- we're going to be doing a series of blogs up until the day that we're finally moved into our new office space at Liberty Station in Point Loma. Today, USD Marketing Associate, Monica Lim, talks about her memories of our office in Kearny Mesa as she moves boxes....

SDAFF is finally moving to the new office! Every time I re-read those words and hear them from people in the office two emotions come to mind: excited and bittersweet. Just the fact that we are expanding and moving to a new location is exciting within itself! However, at the same time, I am conflicted because this office on Engineer Road holds so many memories. Ever since I started with SDAFF in the summer of 2010, I cannot help but reflect on my first day working with the other interns, meeting the staff, and the day I had my interview. It was as if it was yesterday. Especially, the week of the festival, I remember everyone running around, the meetings, and the times we would go out to venture to get lunch. Even the amazing surrounding area of Convoy made this office even more comforting. Well, we are an Asian centered organization and our present location is too perfect. This may just be an office full of memories, but it was a second home for everyone.

Now to the exciting aspect, I am extremely thrilled for us to be moving! This transition into the new building means that SDAFF is becoming more and more successful! We get to have a fresh start in a new office and expand the organization as whole. I remember hearing Lee Ann telling everyone that this was the fourth move the organization has made. Also, this transition can only means brighter and bigger things for this organization!!! Who would not be ecstatic? I cannot wait to make even more joy filled and funny memories at the new office. This is just another stepping stone to making this organization bigger and better!
