Ok. For the record, I'm not one of those people who gets a kick out of manipulating people. That said, there's a kind of rush from dealing with someone people think is 'difficult' bc I know how to deal with personality disorders, for better or worse.
the benefit concert last night was my first big thing at the new job and it went pretty well if I do say so myself. bossman was happy, volunteers were awesome and complimentary about "pulling it off", the bands were sweethearts, and folks seemed to have a good time. maybe I can turn a corner now after getting a win under me.
FFeed family: a dear friend of mine is headed west to explore opportunities in Seattle, Portland and the Bay Area. She'll be out there for a few months doing the Air BnB thing checking things out. She's an experienced web developer (primarily Ruby, but proficient in many others) not to mention an awesome person. Hit me up for the connect.
One good thing I did today was introduce one of the bigwigs at my older job to a leading expert in the field she's trying to break into. Because I know people and I'm not at all bitter or petty or anything.
Well, hell. I just hit an emotional wall out of nowhere. I think it's just looking down the barrel of another week juggling two jobs and feeling like I can't tell if I'm getting anywhere worth going when I'm barely able to figure out what I'm doing. So 'sit here and cry' is what I'm doing now.
