Holy crap, I've been in my office for 5 years!

Today marks the 5 year anniversary of my being at my job!

5 years!

It's actually a pretty huge thing for me to comprehend - I seriously cannot believe it. The workdays have been a steady decline of happiness (or a steady increase of suck - whatever) for the last 3 or so years. I seriously cannot believe I'm still chugging along. Having seen a virtual revolving door of people come and go, I have to say, I'm kind of happy and proud.

A new colleague, J, started today. As she was being led around and introduced to everyone, I actually saw the same spark that I had in my eye 5 years ago reflected in hers. She is so super-psyched to be here, and has that whole 'can't wait for life's great adventure to kick in' vibe. She's jumping at the phone calls, zooming down the halls, chipper and positive...I used to be like that. it starts to kick in around month 6, but it's just a tingle in the back of your mind. By the time it's a full grown realization, you can't help but kick yourself for not delving more into that back of the mind though you had oh-so-many-months ago. She left promptly at 5:30pm though. That will become a thing of the past soon enough.

Hopefully, she comes back tomorrow :)

Have an excellent week everyone!



Congrats on the accomplishment. I think it's harder and harder to have longevity at any job these days.

for the love of pictures

Hi Kim :) Thanks! I agree - jobs have so much turnover. My own Department is now running on bare bones staff. Hope your week is going splendidly!
