"Talking Shop on a Monday."


  

          

Got real sick last week. Had to take a few days off. I almost never get sick, and I hate having to ask for days early on during a job.

shrug

Not feeling great about this.

1st snow of the season. It was kinda peaceful driving into work. What y'all on?

Hopefully you're better now and can get back on it!

I need to take some time off just to reset and finish up the year. I have some time set for end of October/early November..trying to make it to that without losing my mind over the silly stuff that goes on from time to time.

Regardless, I need to dial it down quite a bit. I've caught myself caring far too much lately. I know better / they won't be naming no buildings after me...surely. I need to remember this, cool it down, and put more energy in on the home front.

nothing you can do if the body says we sick.

I have an interview today for a cyber sec job. looking forward to it. they don't even know about my new cert. hopefully that'll be a nice surprise for them and gives me a leg up.

lastly, this journey over the last 2 years has put me in touch with a few good folks that are pushing/pulling me along. it's been really cool to see that, especially at this stage of my career.

Y'all buy those labels, I was born supreme

it had been around 2 years since the last time i was sick. worse, it was after coming back from a business trip. definitely thought there was a chance it was covid but it was mostly a runny/stuffy nose.

got tested, negative. took about two full days to get rid of it. still have a bit of a dry throat because of it.

i worked from home and it wasnt fun lol

not feeling today at all. the lack of organization and steady direction from above is taking a toll. some days i feel like i can step in to help, today im wondering why i havent applied elsewhere.

No clue what's going on. Vomiting, weakness, chest pain, cough, all that.

cool down. I WFH and switch between bedrooms for my “office” because my master bedroom gets too hot to sleep in in warm weather. I am ready for the temperature to change so I can switch.

By 10 am it was gone. No snow today and in fact it'll be 68 by Sat. Just a weird little drop.

How do I keep ending up here.

Good Job
Good Bennies
Nice Office
The ppl love me
Flexibility up the ying yang

but I am bored out of my mind because there just isn't enough to keep me busy.

I guess it's time to put some more letters behind my name. Might as well make good use of all this extra time, yeah?

great team. great manager. everyone gets along. seems like some folks are really busy and others, like me, might get some work to do. that work is something like put a call together or update the status. you know, real heavy lifting.

with that extra time, I prepared and taught a class to internal folks. did some volunteering on things outside my comfort zone. joined various groups related to where I'm trying to get. also got 4 certs over the past couple of years. a lot of studying on work time.

now it's time for the next job to pop. interview this week went really well.

Y'all buy those labels, I was born supreme

maybe i mentioned it

https://www.inc.com/alison-green/how-do-i-manage-a-great-employee-who-finishes-everything-ahead-of-schedule.html

it came up on my news feed a couple weeks back and i found the question funny. the advice wasnt bad but i dont think its likely to be followed.

in trying to find it i came across others complaining that their employee was playing video games after they were done with their workload and was trying to fire them. all the responses were calling him out for trying to fire his most efficient worker lol

How is this a problem? Give them more work. If there isn't more work to do, see if they are inclined to move up, and then give them some of their bosses work to do. Or re calibrate the workload so that he does just a little bit more, thereby making everyone's life a little easier.

This is a very basic management problem.

I pray it works out.

Everywhere we reach out to is on some “we never seen it this bad, sorry.. no room at the inn”

going out of town to see the inlaws and cant wait. I really like my inlaws and I love the ocean.

said she was running way late.

Which means there is no way I would trust her to pick up my kids after school. smh.. Black people (joking, but not really)

We are headed to Southport. Small port town below Wilmington, NC.
