What's new with me? Sweet of you to ask.
Well. I got a promotion. Seems like just last week that I was saying my ego was getting in my way and then, I got promoted.
Basically my current role involves running around trying to maintain some sanity in my team. They throw up balls and catch 90% of them, and then I scoop up the one that was falling down. I was the catch all. And frankly, I'm really enjoying it.
But, last week one of the people who throws balls up in the air resigned, and my boss asked me if I wanted to apply for the role - essentially hoping that I would get it. And I did!
Mostly what I love about it - isn't that I'll be playing a more integral role in terms of deciding what balls I throw up in the air, although that is going to be a bonus being able to plan my own work to some extent. But that my work place appreciates and values me.
You guys, they appreciate and value my skills. I've never ONCE felt that at a work place. It is ... amazing.
