Out And About Working And Learning (And Collecting Olympic Coins)

It has begun - work that is! After much deliberation and a prolonged application process, I accepted a 6 month contract as a 3D Animator. My first day was this Monday!

So far, everything has been a dream. Everyone has been so nice to me, and they are taking a great deal of care in training us newbies :) I couldn't be more delighted. On the first day alone, one of the managers gave us red pockets for Chinese New Year. And what was inside? A shiny, golden Olympic loonie!

I've been collecting the Olympic quarters in circulation since the weekend when I traded my normal quarter for the Olympic quarter-of-the-day at the Royal Canadian Mint downtown. They gave me a special folder to collect all of the 2010 circulation coins, and there are spots for two Olympic loonies. I figured I would never get one of those, so I was resigned to leave the spots empty for all eternity. Lo and behold, I now have one spot filled! Hurray!

I've also been petitioning my brother and sister (and their friend) to trade their Olympic quarters for my normal quarters. I can proudly count 5 Olympic quarters in my collection now. I just need 8 more.

I hope you're all having a wonderful week!

I wonder if we have special olympic coins over here in the UK?

Hi Lynn! So far, it has been a lot of fun. I can't wait to see how it will turn out!

niftyknits, it would be cool to find out! My parents went to the laundromat today and collected a few more Olympic coins for me. Hurray!
