What a week. Whew.

I’ve been working for a few weeks now at my new job. (Part-time for now) as internal computer support.

Last Friday the network storage device needed a hardware repair, which the outside tech that they’ve been working with for years, came and repaired.

Skip to Monday morning and find that the fix didn’t work and the device is now dead. Eek! Years worth of documents and program data is now inaccessible.

Without boring you all with the details, bottom line, no backup, partial data recovery, new unit on the way, getting data recovery estimates. It’s been a busy week.

I got a good review today though. It seems that they are all happy with my performance so far, and all feel that we work together well, even though I felt ‘in way over my head’ a few times, I’m doing a good job and people like me.

Most of you that know me, know that I don’t care much about what people think of me, but it’s pretty cool to get a job doing things that you taught yourself and enjoy doing and have others tell you that you are doing well.

This is good news, since the ‘part-time for now’ is supposed to lead to full-time, possibly more money, and benefits.

I guess quitting my job when I did, without a new job lined up, as scary as it was, was a good thing.

I had time to finish Ally’s room, reorganize my room, rest and recover from the high stress of the job I quit, and time to update my LinkedIn profile, which is how my new boss found me.

I guess timing really is everything 🙂

Now to deal with the crazy days of Christmas shopping. Going out Sunday with a friend. Hopefully we don’t run into many rabid consumers. I just need to get some practical gifts, lunch with a friend and go home.
