So, I got my annual

So, I got my annual review this morning at work, and I must say, I’m very happy. I’ve worked for some pretty good managers in my career (yeah, I’m 26 and I have a ‘career’), but my current one is the best yet. He gets it. He knows what it’s like to write code, and knows when someone does it well. You can’t BS him, and that’s cool. You don’t see people on the team who slack or try to get away with writing crap code getting recognized, and I love it.

Oh, so you want to know what I did yesterday on my second sanity day? Oh, it was exciting! I cleaned the rust stains off the stairs leading up to the house. I used CLR, which if you’ve never seen it, is amazing stuff. It bubbles like hydrogen peroxide and takes that rust right off. And if you call now… oh, wait. Then, on top of that, I painted the railings on the stairs a nice flat black enamel. It all went well, and wore me out. I think I need to start working out or something.

I think that’s it for today – no big thoughts, just back at work working – now for more money than before! Woo-hoo!
