** English reading practice **

I arrived five minutes past our

scheduled time, in a rush and flustered by my lateness. This is a terrible start, I thought to myself. I could see him through the windowed door of the conference room—the same one I had met my manager in previously—eyes glued to his phone.

Just a day earlier, we had both been designers on the same team, sitting in our adjacent pods, working on our respective projects while lobbing rapid-fire design feedback across the aisle. Then the announcement was made, and now I was his manager.

**Extra credit**: when have you been flustered? How did you deal with it?

    @visionQg 就是运气一直不好,今天好运气终于轮到我了的意思吗?好运势需要自己把握,时机是一个人努力准备的结果,可以这样理解吗?
