If you’re still reading this blog, THANK YOU. Once again, I apologize that we have gone missing. We are both still alive!!
I feel like everything has happened since 2014 even started, and then when I sit down to write about it, I don’t even know where to start or what to say.
Truthfully, the reason for me not blogging lately is because I’ve just been SOOOO busy. And no, I don’t mean that in the sense of, omg I’m so busy and I’m so kewl.
I mean that in, I have been working my ass off. I’m lucky (heh heh) if I get a few hours of sleep each night.
So, I suppose I’ll just start with that.
Remember Fatso? My coworker? Well, when I came back to work after the holiday break, he got fired. Seriously. The DAY we got back from a 2-week break, he was fired. Like I was here, in my office, and he got fired.
Okay, you get the point.
Well, I was kind of shocked and not surprised all at once, because, let’s face it, he was a little crazy.
But at the same time, stuff changed IMMEDIATELY. Not only was the energy in the office different, but our web team of 5 was knocked down to 4. One of those workers being a temp, so in March our team of 4 became 3.
And while that sounds exciting, guess who has been picking up the slack? THIS MOTHER FUCK.
Did I get a raise? Nope.
The part of Fatso’s job that I’m covering (and have been covering for 4 months) is a giant social media job that pretty much never stops.
I’m not going to lie to you, I have a little more respect for the guy now that I’m doing his dirty work.
And so, not only did the work at my day job pick up, but I’ve still had to maintain my busy freelance schedule so I can ay my bills and occasionally pay for some fun stuff.
So, things have been rough, to say the least.
But, I’m currently working on a plan to present to my boss to see if I can get a raise, therefore lowering some of my freelance workload. Has anyone out there ever done that?
I need all of the help, advice, and encouragement I can get.
I promise, I’ll talk to you guys soon!!!
