"For every doorway there is a threshold. I pause there, knowing that when I pass through, I will be surrounded by a different environment, and I will be, in some small way, a different person" - Orson Scott Card in Doorways

The job is over and I am now attempting to relax a little. It has been nice without work...which I think is obvious. Now the task is deciding what to do next. There is still very little in this town for work. I have thought of going on to graduate school. Oh well...when its late at night and my mind is very tired there is not much that I can decide.

I am so excited that I only have 2.5 more days at my current job. The last week has illustrated the reasons I am leaving many times. Work does not get done; non-work related things take priority over work stuff. I am glad I will not have to deal with this for much longer. I do not have a business degree and I do not claim to know a whole lot about business. But, I know that the business I work for is run very poorly. The most pushed value at work is communication. I find this great, but to be a functioning business responsibility should be the paramount value. Oh well…I should just deal with the last 2 days and be happy that I am gone.

I love the idea of pawning off work on others. Except for the fact that I cannot do it, and I usually get the “projects” from my fellow co-workers. It makes me feel so warm and fuzzy on the inside. Just another reason that I am happy that I put in my two weeks… It will all be over soon enough. I am fortunate to have had this experience, but then again, it could have been better.

Office Space is by far one of the best movies I have ever seen. After working in an office of a “tech-minded” company I can relate to many of the characters in the movie. Today is an “Office Space Day” for me a work. Today I am a hybrid of Peter and Milton. I am doing work when others are doing something else. I have been called a “party pooper” today, and I have been told, “What are you doing? Trying to work?” I understand that some of these comments are in jest, and I am all for fun. But, I do not like being the only working at any given time…or at least in my department (which happens all too much). I am excited (yes, excited) that the person whom the department selected to take over as temporary supervisor is a slacker…I think they will realize what kind of work some of us others did once this person takes over…Oh well…that’s my sick dream. Enjoy the weekend… Office Space Page

Life is a crazy thing. Work increases the craziness, and I am not too sure if it would ever decrease it. Ever since I put in my two weeks notice into my job my manager has been trying to “win me over”. You would think this would be something that would be done before I quit…but maybe not…Everyone has been very surprised that I am leaving…but then again I have been showing signs that I am disengaging myself from my colleagues. I continued to work as hard as ever, but I thought I was presenting myself as not being all there. Oh well…after the two weeks is up I hope to move on to bigger and better things.
