Four on the Fourth

Today is the fourth anniversary at my job. I still feel like the new guy, and very lucky to be here. Part of it was the temporary work space we were all in while the library was being renovated. I think a lot of people felt like they were in flux.

Things are starting to settle in the new digs, there's a large window to my right.

Seriously it's a great place to work, almost perfect once the vending machines are installed.

The other night, at open mic, the subject of hating your job in your blog came up. My name was not mentioned until later. People have short memories. It's been four years but I had some memorable postings of job hate. Not anymore. Not since leaving a very toxic place. There have been few, if any, days I have not wanted to come into work in the last four years.

My colleagues are great and I like what I do. Again, I'm very lucky.

Happy job anniversary Ed! It's good to work somewhere you enjoy. The alternative can be spirit crushing. I remember your job hate and I'm glad it's gone.

It's really amazing what not having the life sucked out of you and being appreciated for eight hours a day can do for you.

Wow, I can't believe it's already been four years.

Yes, it has been a while since you wrote those job rants.

Yes, four years. My life was in some major turmoil then.
