I've said this before -- many times before -- I like my gig. I like the people I work with. I like what I do. I like that people trust that I know what I am doing, but don't just blindly agree/listen to what I have to say. One thing I don't like about my job -- I don't have many people I would call friends there. I know it's just a job, but I'm use to working at places (CAF, NNIB, MF) where I had quite a few friend -- and always a lunch companion. At SPC, a lot of people bring their lunch -- which is something that I really find revolting. When I worked at CAF and made absolutely no money, I still managed to take time and find the money to go out to lunch. It might have been half a subway sandwich ($1.99 at the time), but my lunch ritual is not something that I want to give up.
A girl I work with -- actually she's my cube neighbor, she was actually my FIRST cube neighbor, decided to leave the company and go back to school. She resigned today -- well I think she resigned today. I left before she told her boss, but her plan was to resign today. Anyway, she is going to Med School. How crazy is that!?
Sometimes, nay, most times, I feel like I am just standing still. Everyone is moving on with their lives and careers and I'm stuck in neutral. I don't know what to do -- maybe I should just stay in neutral for a while and see what happens.
Going to dinner with JM on Friday night -- that's always fun -- although it usually ends up being a long late night and me in a $40 cab ride home from the bad part of town. Saturday, she and I are going on a CAF tour -- I think it is an old mine being turned into a park. They say you should bring shoes that can get muddy. Yeah, I'm not doing that. I think I'll bring a cell phone and a cab number programmed in to help me escape. I moved to the city so I wouldn't have to walk through the mud. Silly people.
