It’s no secret that I’m looking to find a better opportunity and something that engages me more than where I’m at right now. Definitely in a lull here at work as we close out the year, but I’ve dealt with some pretty crappy people and issues this year and not exactly sure what more to do about that. So I’ve been applying for awhile now to positions that suit me and my ambitions. Some have certainly been pretty far out of my wheelhouse, some much more in it. I’ve previously had two interviews for other positions and did another one today that I’m sure was competitive. I thought I did well and knew one of the people I interviewed with, but it was still pretty stressful. I took the last week and a half to brush up on the various technical, regulatory and policy issues that would be required in the position since my skills in this area had eroded some – so it was like cramming for a test. Stressful, glad it’s over, interviewing sucks.
I feel this whole year has been full of similar events, between either my wife or I. She’s changed jobs and had surgery. I’ve been dealing with my own ups and downs, and between the two of us, it hasn’t led to as much ups/downs between the sheets as we’d like. In a few short days though, we’re leaving on real vacation, for the first time ever (besides a night here or there at a hotel) without the kids. We’re shutting off phones, and will be enjoying the venue and ourselves while we recharge and reconnect. Much needed.
Anyway, in case I don’t get anything written to drop while I’m away, adios until I am back.
