Bottom line: Jrex has horrible timing. Three months ago he bought my birthday present. It arrived on Saturday. Unfortunately, on Sunday we had to travel up to Sonoma to visit some vineyards. I endured the suffering as we met one of my best friends and her new husband, sampled wines, laughed and talked all day. Finally that night, I was able to crack open the gift. Of course, the next day I had to start a new job. Tired.
The stupid gift took me until Thursday night to finish. I kept staying awake trying to just ‘get ‘er done’ and couldn’t do it. This would have been fine if I had a brain dead job. Monday through Wednesday I was supposed to just be doing training to get started at work. However the design department has been understaffed since February. Any time I wasn’t in training, they had me starting projects. I’ll be handling all the events and tradeshows for S*n M1crosyst3ms. They have three coming up in September so I was thrown off the deep end figuring out their brand and modifying designs. Of course, I couldn’t complain about my exhaustion because the phrase, “I stayed up late reading the last Harry Potter book” certainly wasn’t going to enhance my professional image.
