I've been working for BIG INC for a whole year now.
Some times I am still very wowed by it all. I love the job, the people rock, my boss may possibly be the best boss I've ever had, and to top it off, what we do impacts the entire company. It's very cool.
Tomorrow I'm meeting someone from my teaching days for lunch. She's on her week off before summer school starts. (I miss the week off a little, but don't miss the summer school, which was often poorly planned/organized and frankly even the students could tell that the point was to keep them busy and not to teach them stuff). I look forward to catching up with her, but boy am I glad I'm not doing that any more.
