Almost there...

Monday, July 01, 2002

Okay, so I was having one of those days where I wondered why in the heck I was doing this job. This project has problems, and I don't see the people at the top being very realistic about the time it's going to take to fix it.

Then I was curious about the vacation policy. It turns out that I'm no longer accruing 3 weeks of vacation a year. I'm accruing four weeks of vacation a year. Exempt employees from their second through ninth years of service accrue four weeks a year!

Wow. I really really like working at Stanford. The vacation policy, plus the amount of cash going into my retirement account each month alone make it worth putting up with any filgercarb the project throws at me. And eventually, the project will either get better, work itself out, or I'll go find another job on campus. I can handle that. And in the meantime, I'm taking Friday off!

Oh, and I'm also planning to drive cross country with Kevin to Pittsburgh. This is going to be great.
