Today was my two-year anniversary of being a full-fledged Sky employee. I didn’t mention it to anyone, and HR certainly didn’t throw me a party. No Sky Financial candy dish, no extra weeks of vacation (yet). I am, however, 40% vested in my ESOP and profit-sharing money now, so my happy 401(k) doesn’t look quite so drastically different between the money that’s mine and not-mine-yet.
I know this is my cue to start my usual woe-is-me crap, but I just don’t feel like that today. I mean, I’m not thrilled to be working for Sky, and I certainly haven’t given up hope of finding something different and/or better, but I’m not unhappy, either. If I stick with Sky, I still have room to move up within the company. If I find something else, I have 2+ years of valuable financial/corporate experience.
It’s just my job. It’s not my life. I’m genuinely happy with my life, and only moderately ambivalent about my job.
Yeah, I’m doing OK. We’re doing OK.
