Hey, it’s only been, what, a month and a half?
I’ve been pretty busy with work and life here. Trying to keep up with all manner of things and mostly succeeding.
Part of this is work-related. I’m learning a new job, learning in more depth the personalities of the people I’m working with (this can lead to a few difficulties as we try to mesh the various quirks), and at the same time trying to keep a couple different-but-related projects on track at a level of experience that at least resembles competence.
One of the issues I’m having is there is a guy who doesn’t like to let stuff he considers “his” go… even though someone else is assigned to a particular task (and he did the assigning!), he’ll come along behind and change things so they’re to his liking. This is exceptionally irritating to me as I am a *very* experienced automotive engineer and having someone treating me like an idiot schoolboy is not something I’m expecting. I’ve been biting my tongue so far as I’m still not quite sure how much of my performance review will come from this guy, but there will be a time… and I hope I am able to keep my tone and inflection professional when that time comes.
Meanwhile… everyone’s healthy. K was accepted to the doctorate program that starts in September after she completes her Masters in August, Miss E is heading toward graduation, though her social calendar largely precludes her having any time for us.
So, as it goes, it goes.
Maybe I’ll post again with less time interval… 🙂
