1. After taking my Myers Briggs quiz I am 63% introverted. I work at Starbucks in Laguna Niguel, CA. Starbucks magic happens behind the bar which has about 6 to 7 people during the morning rush and 3 to 4 people in the afternoon until closing time. I do not have an office but I do have a desk in the back. I share my desk with my shift leads as well as with my baristas if they need a place to eat or rest.

I have three personal items at the workplace! It is so incredible to see that my number of items is the median average.
