How Did I Get My Nickname Bubbles?

Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a lovely day/afternoon/evening/night as you are reading this blog post. As you can see, I am becoming a lot more confident in my blogging and what I share with you all. This is going to be one of the more personal blog posts that I share with you all, mixed with a little bit of humor. I did not think in my wildest dreams that anyone would ever read my blog posts and talk about them in public. However, this past week I have learned that some of my co-workers have began reading my blog!

One of my co-workers approached me as I started my shift this morning and said to me “Bubbles, how come you did not tell us that you are a blogger now?!?!” Oddly enough, this is where you all get to hear the story of how I got the nickname Bubbles from my co-workers (haha)!

I am a Web Developer at the Dutch Online Casino Portal Nederlandse Gokkasten. I have been working here for almost 3 years now and I absolutely love it! The work enviorment is a lot better than at my previous job over at the internet casino giant leovegas. My co-workers are amazing and my job position is equally as amazing. Sometimes I get to work from home when I am feeling under the weather, or if there is not much work to do in the office. While I did not plan this 3 yeas ago, it is actually perfect for me now as I can work from home and blog as well.

I remember the exact moment I got my nickname Bubbles so hopefully you all laugh with me and not at me (haha)! It was my 3rd day on the job and I was still considered “the new kid in the office” so while the veteran employees were a bit grumpy because of the rain and thunderstorm that was going on, I was extremely happy about work and the weather! One of my co-workers (let’s call her Jane for the sake of privacy) started having small conversation with me.

“Why are you so happy on such a gloomy day?” – Jane asked me
“Well, I have nothing to be sad or grumpy about. I love this type of weather and I love this job!” – I replied with a big smile on my face.
“Well you know what, from now on I am going to call you Bubbles!” – Jane said in a sarcastic manner.
“Hey you guys, I know this does not seem like the best day to stay in the office and work all day. We are going to be ordering food for you all today so you do not have to go out for lunch.” My boss said with glee in his voice.
“See, how is there any way that I could be mad about a day like this?” I stated to Jane.
“Well, you seem to always find the best in everything Bubbles. Have a great day and I will see you at lunch.” – Jane said as she walked back to her office.

Now you know how I got my nickname bubbles! It was not from my family or my friends, it was from my quirky and nerdy co-workers that looked at me as always being happy and bubbly all the time. Let me know in the comments how did you get your nickname. Was it from your friends, family, co-worker, or did you make it up yourself?

I hope you all have an amazing day today no matter how the weather is and I will see you all next blog post.
