    I got to visit the Google campus today, courtesy of a friend who works there, and since this totally made my month, I thought I'd share a few pics. :)

    Me and BigDroid.

    I got to sit in the ball pit and eat in the cafeteria. I'm insanely jealous of anyone who works there--I absolutely love how the whole thing is geared toward not only keeping their workers happy and comfortable, but also keeping them learning--they have tons of different opportunities everywhere for people to use their brains in different ways. I love it SO MUCH!!! The whole thing was special, and totally made my month. :D

    ...now to convince them they need to hire a high school English teacher...

    Not to worry, show them a few spelling errors etc on some Google page, and ask whether you can help teach the workers english or atleast Proof read it before they post it online! Viola, job found.
    (If only it were that easy :p)
    But yeah, working at Opera or Google looks to be awesome!

    Who put that screen protector on the N1?!?!?! :eek: They should be fired. ;)


    Great photos. That had to be a fun trip. I often heard that Google is one of the best places to work. I'd love the opportunity. Alas, I'm not that smart.

    I want to be an IT and work for an IT company!!! I did work for an IT company when I was doing my internship...but was an FA so the building I worked at was more by the book and structured. The IT building was OMG...they had theme relax rooms with games (pool tables, ping pong tables, foos ball tables) The Asian theme room was the best with the indoor waterfall. I was always jealous when I went there. They had a gym with showers, a basketball court, volleyball court and a soccer/football field. And they were pretty casual...like pj casual at times XD
