What I Do

I know I should write about myself. As if I'm writing into a journal. At least, that's what I set out to do when I started this blog. But how can I write about myself when NOTHING happens?

Well, not NOTHING. More like nothing INTERESTING.

Who wants to hear about my day at work? Who needs to sleep?

I do not have an interesting job. I enter orders. When I'm not doing that, I'm preparing proposals for clients to upgrade their older (obsolete) system to the newest system (the company I work for sells access control systems). On top of those, once a week I enter time (for billing purposes). Apparently I did it faster than the girl who was hired to do it, so I got the job back (lucky me).

Sort of confirms what a former boss of mine said: "You do good work, your reward is more work."

Funny thing is, I wasn't hired to do all that stuff (except for the proposals). I was hired to create databases (via Access), to aid in reporting. I did do that at first, but not so much anymore (Because I did such a good job and they don't need anymore help? I don't know). So they look for more stuff for me to do.

I'm okay with it as long as I don't have to talk to the customer. I work in sales support, not sales (I don't sell). And as much as I bemoan the job (because let's face it, I'd rather write), it sure beats working in accounting. I don't think I ever want to go back to that life.

I guess I should just be glad I have a job. A job that aids in my future retirement. But in eight years (when the house is paid for) or the day I hit the lottery or when I've sold multiple books (whichever comes first) is the day I can say "I quit!"

I sure hope I can say it before eight years have passed.

Stacy - When there's nothing going on in your world but you want to keep your blog focused on you, write about your opinions or reactions to things going on outside your world. There's plenty of material there but it will still be about you.
