Net Worth Week 93

Gentle Readers,
The gig has gone even more ridiculously this week. They let us know on midday Wednesday that for the next three days they’d like us to work even more and that they’ll base their culling decisions on h0w much we work. It’s been exhausting, especially because the systems naturally did not cooperate.
I made it back to the free cabaret and played soccer. My deskmate asked why I was not putting in 15 hour days and then bemoaned that I’m “probably making healthier choices” than them. Yes. Yes, I am.
No advances on the estate paperwork.
I received a present from my girlfriend and her mom. A delicious King Cake. This may signify nothing, or is just a nice thing to do, or maybe I should let hope grow. Outlook unclear. So I’m just going to keep focusing on the things I’m doing to make my life great.
A friend from grad school contacted me at midnight and set me up with tickets to a great networking and learning event. I’ll have to miss four days of work, but, per above, it is not clear that I’ll have the gig by the end of next week anyway. I chose advancing my career. I think it was the right choice.
The numbers look slightly better than they are because my brother has not cashed the check I gave him yet. But I like the trend.

  • Well, a lot of work is better than no work! So that’s a good thing. It’s great that you’re staying physically active with soccer while working under such high pressure. Free tix to network and a gift…looks like things are looking up.

    • Definitely looking up. Thank goodness!
