New Year Reflections

I had wanted to do this post on Thursday but Blogger wouldn't let me create a post. Them bastards. Last night I just passed out shortly after getting home from work. I was suppose to wrap all the presents for the inlaw Christmas that is suppose to start in less than 3 hours. And we are even done shopping yet. So as I sip my coffee I just want to reflect to the blogging world on 2008.

At the beginning of 2008 I never thought in my wildest dreams that things would pan out the way they would. I was working as a head of division that was slowly growing and it was my baby. We had a huge account sign and I had zero support from the owner. Shit barely got done in time and staffing occurred mainly after go live. I got demoted from my position. An old bat who has no experience in the industry got my job and became my "boss." She was suppose to mentor me to take over for my job when she retires. I can't be mentored by an anal retentive moron who is slower than shit in a face paced industry. Things have grown so fast around there that I'm pretty sure we are out of capital funding. Not good in this economic situation. I've been putting out resumes left and right with only one half assed nibble. I'm not sure what the hell that is about. That brings me to my first resolution.

When I went to school out of high school I got a certificate for my 2 years of hell. I had started classes to finish my associates degree a few years back. Only 1 school would recognize my first two years of schooling so I was stuck with this school. It was touted as an internet degree completion. After I registered, I found out that I had to show up to their campus to take the tests. Now their campus is not in my backyard but it isn't too far. I ended up stopping my classes when I was juggling 2 jobs and failed out of one of the classes after the first test because it was submitted late. It is time. I need to finish this. I just need 2 classes to finish this bitch up. Then maybe I'll start to look at doing my BS. So resolution number 1 is to finish up that fucking degree. I know. I'm an idiot for not doing it already.

I started this blog back in March as a bit of a way to blow of some deep seeded feeling. Nobody really read it too much. I had a couple of faithful readers and that was about it. Things really started to flourish when I started doing the HNT. I have met some of the nicest people out here in blog land. I never thought I'd become so close to these special people. Even though we've never met they have been there to laugh with me in the good times, cry with me in the bad times, and worry about me in the really bad times. I have done the same. Many tears were shared over the internet and the phone. Same thing with the wet your pants laughing. Friendships were created and lost. I wouldn't change it for anything. Geography has been the largest thing preventing me from meeting my blog friends. That brings me to resolution number 2.

I resolve to find a way to meet my best friends. Now accepting donations for airfare!

I'm sure 2009 will blow my mind too when I'm sitting here in 2010. I better get to wrapping them presents.

Let me be the first to encourage you to go back to school. I didn't get the first degree until after 30. It was Sugar that pushed me the hardest. I'm so thankful now. Its the best gift I've ever given myself.

And if you make it to Ga, look me up. =)

Go back to school my friend and stay there til you're through. If they can make penicillan out of mouldy old bread they can surely do something with you.
