Another Day One

I started a new job today. I was going to end that first sentence with an exclamation point but I find I'm too tired at the moment to be excited about it. That doesn't mean my first day was a bad day. It was a very good day. It was just a very overwhelming day. … Continue reading Another Day One


The Exit Interview

Well… that’s over. I went in for my exit interview this morning, which was, in reality, little more than a survey asking how the company can improve in certain areas. I had nothing negative to say… so I’m sure my responses were of little use to the powers that be. Of course, when I exited … Continue reading The Exit Interview

One More Day

I only have one more day left in my current job. One more day and then next week begins a brand new adventure. No... that sounds more exciting than it is. It's a new job... not an adventure. I'm nervous and have no idea what I'm doing. But I'll learn. And I'd be lying if … Continue reading One More Day

I Did a Thing…

Not sure how much I can or should actually say at the moment. But I've been offered a new job and I have accepted said job. I've given my notice to my current employers and will begin my new position in a couple of weeks. I'm nervous and excited. It's an interesting mix of feelings. … Continue reading I Did a Thing…

Summoned to the Office

A little background... I don't typically work in our office. I'm out in the community with clients throughout the vast majority of my work day. For me to go into the office is a rare thing. It means I've got a meeting with my supervisor or a staff meeting or a client needs to meet … Continue reading Summoned to the Office

No Movie Today…

This week's movie is supposed to be The Third Man. But I haven't watched it yet. And I'm not in the mood to watch it yet. I don't know what the deal is. It's like I'm in a funk today. I'm stressed out about work. I'm anxious over a potential change that I'd kind of … Continue reading No Movie Today…


I could air grievances based on the random absurdities I constantly find my life bombarded with. It would be cathartic. But I don’t know if that’s the right way to do things. So what if I just take a look at myself and examine my own expectations and actions. What is it that I bring … Continue reading Absurd

Pretending to Care

Disclaimer: This post is going to come across as extremely negative. Now, I never claim to be the most positive cynic in the world, but I'm going full dark side here. And while I generally try to keep the language G or PG rated, that may go out the window in this post as well. … Continue reading Pretending to Care

How to Tell if You’re Working for the Right Company

I'm gonna say some good things about the people for whom I work. However, thinking about the nature of my job, I really can't mention my company by name, but I want to make it clear that I have been really blessed to have fallen into the right place when I began this job back … Continue reading How to Tell if You’re Working for the Right Company
