Threw a little food party this evening. Everything went
quite well, and was very pleasant. I cooked up some beef
stroganof and coush-coush, and baked a couple of pies.
It's nice to have a little break like that every now and
The job has been up and down lately. I recently took a supervisor job of Kiva's technical support department. The pro's consist of being involved in elevated projects, in charge of training new employees, more exposure to the rest of the people in the company, and coworkers coming to me for questions. The downfalls are pretty substantial, though. I find I'm involved in the beurocracy way too much now, where as before I was sheilded from it. I think jlf says it best: "I want to get shit done at work with as little bullshit as possible." How right you are.
I thought about picking up another tech job that I can do in the evenings. Since I'm working days now at the supervisor, I have a lot of spare time that I could be using for useful things, like cleaning my house. But I don't want to. For some random, odd reason I'm only motivated at work. But I figure, "Hey, might as well make a little more money instead of sitting on my ass all night."
I don't think I would even bother if I had a shot at a sys job at Kiva in the near future, but with cdent leaving, they don't have time to spare for training someone. At least that's my inference of the official word I was given. Time will tell.
