Today I'm thinking about the concept of work life, and personal life, and how sometimes there's a lot of pressure (or preference) to keeping those two things separate. This was prompted by an awesome conversation with one of my coworkers, who happens to be my partner-in-vaping-in-inappropriate-places-crime (you know who you are). He said that he… Continue reading I am a people!
Can it really be almost a year since my last post? That seems excessive, even for me. I guess in some ways, it's understandable being that this last year has been crazy busy - but even so. I got married! And went to Europe! And got a sort-of-kind-of promotion at work. With all that going… Continue reading a year in the life
October 8th marked my fourteen year anniversary with the company I work for. Let me say that again. Fourteen (14) year anniversary. I never in a million years thought that I'd work at a place this long, much less still feel as passionate about it and challenged today as I did fourteen years ago. Let's… Continue reading throwback thursdays (vol. 15): fourteen (that’s f-o-u-r-t-e-e-n) whole years.
So, tomorrow I have a presentation at work. I'm supposed to talk about my role at the company and the things I do as a Product Manager in IT. As part of this presentation, they want a picture of me to include since I'll be dialing in instead of traveling (for once). So what have… Continue reading selfie hell
So, a couple weeks ago (before all the madness) I had just finished up a trip to New Orleans, Louisiana. It was my first time there, and I think spending St. Patrick's day in NOLA is as close as I'll get to the Mardi Gras experience. It. Was. Unreal. So unreal, that I felt I… Continue reading n’awlins
So, I logged into my work computer on Monday morning, after two weeks vacation, only to find that nothing was working. No email, no VPN, no intranet, no company webpage…It was enough to make me worry that more was going on than just an IT issue. Hours of non-productiveness. On a Monday. The first day back. Also had a… Continue reading first day back at work was…not great.
Last week I made my last trip of the year to the (supposed to be) sunny city of Los Angeles. Except...it wasn't very sunny. Of course, this would be the trip where I got one of these, which is kind of hard to see but is in fact a Mustang. Convertible. I should have realized… Continue reading done travelin’…this year anyway
At long, long last, my company has decided to replace this antiquated artifact of phones past: With this! YES it is pink. I am not a huge fan of the 5c but I LOVE THAT IT IS PINK. It's all set up and even receiving emails and appointments like a boss. First thing I did?… Continue reading retiring the blackberry…finally.
As you may know, I work in IT. As in, Information Technology. As in, I should know a little something about computers. Unfortunately, I don't. When people find out that I work in IT, the first thing they ask is, "Oh, can you help me with this computer problem I'm having" or "Come over and… Continue reading being in IT does not make me good at computers
I found out today that boss #5 (over the last three years) has tendered his resignation, and his last day will be Friday. Sigh. On the one hand, I'm not too bothered since I only met him for five minutes during a recent team meeting in Nashville and spoke with him one-on-one for a grand… Continue reading revolving door
