Almost there...

Wednesday, January 16, 2002

Just when I thought work couldn't get any worse.... just when I actually started crying... just when I got back from having to walk away from it all for a couple of hours... just when I thought I couldn't be more under-appreciated, my project manager walks in with an envelope, says she knows how hard I'm working, says she really appreciates it, and says this bonus represents my valuable contributions up to this point. God I love my job. I really do. It's being really tough right now, and I'm working an absolutely stupid quantity of hours, and I'm not getting all the support I need, but at least somone is noticing that I'm working my ass off to get it all to work. I've never had that before. Stanford keeps surprising me. I'm really glad I work here.

Now if I could just get the acid in my stomach to calm down, I'd be really good.Today is the first payroll after the users touched the system, and it looks like it's going to be as bad (or even worse) that I had feared.

Meanwhile, you too can work here! My friend Sean sent me his resume, I submitted it, and he just got hired, so I'm also due for a friends hiring bonus as well. Well, due in 90 days or so. But still, that totally rocks. And now Sean can experience the coolness that is working at Stanford. Hooray!
