A wrench in the plan


Blog

This morning I went to the board meeting, it went less smoothly than I anticipated. That’s good, though; that’s what I was asking for. The boardembers actually we’re questioning things. As it turns out, they had been meeting for an hour before I showed up, like usual. My boss has presented the proposed budget for […]

Board meeting


Blog

I have to go to a board meeting today. We have them once a month and I got to report on membership sales and tech status. While it’s nice being considered important enough to go, I’d rather not have to.  I feel like we lie. We take whatever numbers we have and spin them to […]

Rearranging


Blog

We rearranged the furniture in the office today. My boss is convinced it will increase productivity. I disagree. I’m a stubborn old man, but I disagree. Our office was given to use for a year free by the company investor who owns the building. It feels like an office that was leftover because no one […]

Heirarchy


Blog

Everyone came in to work this morning ready to bitch and moan about something, myself included. I didn’t know it, but something yesterday put us all off. I think it stemmed from our boss announcing the bonus structure for the year, and it was much less than everyone anticipated and felt they deserved. Naturally. My […]

Daydreaming


Blog, Recipes

Sometimes I wonder if I really missed my calling in life. Most of my day is centered around emailing and de elopement and other tech related things but my mind wanders to what I’m cooking for dinner. Like a ton of my resting mind thinks about food. Yesterday a co-worker of mine mentioned she tried […]

Exhaustion


Blog

I didn’t sleep yesterday and I slept no.kore than half the night today. I’m not entirely sure what has been keeping me up, but it would be nice if it stopped. We bought some goji energy bites from the co-op on Sunday after Star Wars and each had one. We are them in the evening […]

Comfortable temperatures


Blog

What do you consider to be a comfortable temperatures in the winter? For me, it’s somewhere over 72°.  At home, we keep the temperature around 68 while we are there, but we make up for it by hiding under a pile of blankets. It’s rather comfortable sitting and watching TV that way. Alternatively, I’ll find […]

Long Weekends


Blog

Long weekends are both great and not great. It’s great when they’re happening, but they suck when I come back to work. I took last Friday off for Ellie’s birthday and yesterday was off for the holiday. We did souch in four days, but unfortunately, my inbox filled up while I was gone. The day […]

Initiative


Blog

Okay, first off, the bus has been early the past two days which is just as bad as coming late. Maybe worse because it’s easier to miss it if it’s early. Second, my coworker talked me into speaking to my boss about my job position. She listened to a long complaint of mine yesterday and […]

Raises


Blog

I’m no stranger to getting a raise. Part of that stems from the fact that I haven’t really been at a job more than two years. It’s easy to start someone low and then bump them up early on. I’m guessing if I stick around any place long enough, the raises would taper off. Presently, […]
