Sooooooww... It's been quite some time since I've last japped about my live trhough journals here on DA.
Maybe mostly because I don't share live problems with everyone and such, not wanting to bother people... but I guess there's plenty of reason to bother people about being happy, right?
If not, then stop reading here...
As maybe some of you know, I took a job after being burned out from college for a year. This was an okay job, not something I wanted to do for the rest of my live, but something that was fine to get by for a while.
After working there for a year people really got to know me and the job nearly felt like family.
But, as always with good things, it soon met it's end. Management changed over dark reasons and the new manager somehow hated my department. We where continuesly blamed for every little problem that came to be, and some quit, others got fired. I soon found myself to be the only guy always on the workfloor of my department just because they simply couldn't fire me. Over the year I had made myself quite usefull, and basicly the only guy around solving problems rather than trying to join in on the blaming game. Even the new manager came to appreciate it, and he'd often come to be to ask for explanaitions rather than the head of my department who was never really around anyway.
Eventually, realizing that this wasn't the job I wanted for myself anyway, fixing problems all day rather than making new software... So, I told the agency that gave me the job that I wasn't so happy with it anymore and I wanted to start somewhere else.
To surprise of many, especially myself, I got asked for a job interview almost right after.
The surprise became even greater when the job interview went so well that they nearly hired me on the spot, if it weren't for the fact that I was allready employed.
Then came the hard part about it; telling the people of my previous job I wanted to quit. At first it seemed like they where okay with it and understanded it, but soon I found out management had gone crazy after they heard it. The new manager lashed out towards one other good colleague of mine, who almost wanted to go too after that, which the head of my department came to fix ASAP. The other departments where panicing because they thought the whole place was going to hell and even I could tell they didn't really want me to go after a while.
But I went anyway. I kept feeling a little selfish for leaving them to their fate and I hoped they found a good replacement, I really do... But I'm very happy at my new job. I have been for about 2 to 3 months now and My live's really looking up lately. I even have a girlfriend for about a half a year now and she seems to be appreciating me as well...
So... yeah... I might not be posting a lot of things on DA right now, but my live is going so well... I hardly have time to draw
I hope all of your live's are looking up too, my friends
have a good one!
