09:25 pm - Waiting for the other shoe to drop
Another bad dream. This one about a contract negotiation gone wrong at my new job (which didn't actually bear much resemblance to my new job, except in so much as I was about two weeks into it. Hoppie thinks it's because I still think this job is too good to be true and I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.
It's definitely true that I still think this job is too good to be true. Even living it, I can't believe it. I'm not saying it's not a lot of work, it definitely is. Current estimates have us running about about 3% complete, and we have some very aggressive deadlines, but it makes me feel good. I know I'll be ready to kill someone, possibly myself, in November when the deadlines looms imminently, but even knowing that doesn't dampen my enthusiam.
It really is a whole new ballgame. Who knew?
Current Mood: amusedamused
Current Music: Rob Zombie "Dragula"

I totally get it.

And I hate deadlines. I'll be sure to ignore you in Novemeber. ;-) Then it's like a sudden woosh of disappointment, an anti-climactic let down...

Be glad that you're dreaming it and not living it?

A Whole New Game

I have my baseball (given to me by the same thoughtful company that was laying me off a week or so later) in my new cube at my fabulous new job.

It has "A Whole Game" printed professionally on it.

I penned "Thank Goodness" right underneath.

Baseball is the only, only, only.

Re: A Whole New Game

I am well pleased by the irony. 8-)
