Much going on

It's after midnight and I'm just arriving home. Tonight was another union meeting, this one attended by a number of people who were either opposed to or questioning the idea of joining the union. I, for one, thought it was a really good thing. It was a difficult meeting, to be sure, but in my mind, these are the people that we need to be speaking with. Nevertheless, I'm freaking exhausted now.

And then today I got the big news: on Thursday, I'll be having my interview for the promotion that I've been eyeing for, oh, close to a year now. From what I understand, competition is pretty stiff. I've been given a list of questions and told to ponder them, but, with my current schedule, finding a minute to do that hasn't been easy. A lot of it is computer-related stuff, and n0thingman talked with me for a while this evening and helped me think out loud about it. It was good.

Also on Thursday, immediately before my big interview, I'm having my much-anticipated raise review meeting. We all just got a raise a few weeks ago -- The Co-op raised the base pay for everyone, and gave all employees raises based on that -- so this has the potential to be my second raise in under a month (and hey -- if I get the promotion, that would be my third raise in record time).

It's all just a little overwhelming.

I've been running at full steam for a minute now -- with the union, with work, with Gayle, with everything -- and I intend to keep plugging along, full speed ahead. But sending happy job vibes my way wouldn't hurt either.

For now, my focus is sleep. Well, that, and the fact that tomorrow night after work I'll be getting together with _aqualung_ and Greg, a mutual friend from about twenty years ago. I probably haven't seen Greg since 1990, give or take a year or two. I can't fucking wait.

    Remember how conflicted I felt over receiving money via Gayle's death? I think I found a way to put it to good use. My friend Matjames Metson is a…

    Twenty-two years ago today was the worst day of my life.
