"Talkin' shop on a Monday"


  

          

Yeah, I know it's been a minute, let's just look past that.

So what's up?

Started a new gig. The last one had me so angry I actually just quit with no other job lined up. Luckily, I got the offer for this one the same day. lol

So far so good.

What y'all up to?

The manager and others have said I'm doing really well and that I'm putting too much pressure on myself.

They're probably right. I just need to let the process work itself and not try to rush it.

As part of this, I'm teaching a cert class and studying for another. Maybe I need to sit down somewhere.

Y'all buy those labels, I was born supreme

All it ever seems to do is increase my anxiety level.

I mean I care enough to keep the job but I'm not trying to impress anyone. Still keep inching closer to looking for another job but for now this will do fine.

An easy gig I can do in my sleep, nothing I cared about. Then some blatant disrespect shit popped off and I realized I needed to gto of dodge before I needed bail money. It's so much better when you care. Find you something else, if you can.

If it weren't for that I may have been gone a couple years ago. I have one huge irritant at this job. Without it I might enjoy it more.

I'm also not clear what I want to be doing. I don't want to just move to another company and have the same responsibilities. I need to know in which direction I want to take my career.

I'm thinking maybe making a move to one of our vendors, software or hardware, to help develop or support new solutions. Maybe go to a consumer product company to at minimum understand why their designers can't provide decent files lol

I wish you luck there. Honestly it took me the better part of years to actually figure out a clear trajectory.

so much wasted time....
