The Year in Review (Part One of Maybe None)

It’s been a long year. Life has gotten no simpler, if anything life has become more cluttered and complex. Not sure that in the long run it’s a bad thing, but in the short run, things are difficult and it’s hard to see past the seemingly crappy year of 2006. In summary, I:

1. Lost my old job. To be fair, I had fair warning, like 3 months of warning. I had so much warning, in fact, that I was offered my current job the day after I was let go from my old one. In short, from a maintaining employment perspective, things could not have worked out any better. Which leads directly to…

2. I got my new job. I’m not really sure how. Probably luck. I’m working harder now than I probably ever have before. Like any job, I think I both enjoy and get frustrated with my job. For instance, the hours on my current client team are wholly unpredictable. One day, it’s a light enough load that I can leave at 6 or so. The next, I can’t leave until really late. And it’s not as though I know this a day in advance. I often don’t know until 4 or 5 pm day of what time I’ll be able to leave. Needless to say, this put a lot of stress on an already stressed relationship. Which brings us to…

3. Maybe later. In the meantime, happy new year… almost.
