x Marc Ok... so a senior position opened up and for the 3rd time I was passed over.

Ok.

I would have selected 2 of the 3 instead of me. No problem.

BUT

The thing that bugs me is the first time I was passed over they took me aside and explained why. The 2nd time, that didn't happen. The 3rd time neither.

I feel like a wheel that needs to fcuking squeak.

x Marc Yeah....

Well, I found out a few things:

1. Promotions are exclusively decided by someone whom I trust.
2. I talked to him and he explained that he didn't have time to discuss the decision with me before my vacation.
3. My immediate boss thinks I could do this job. Generally they'd like me to get something bigger.
4. The project in question needs somebody with a bulldog quality, which I haven't yet had to test in myself.

So, it's ok....

Although I did talk to a headhunter who happened to call during this career episode... he seemed to have jobs paying 14k (!) more at the ready. I guess I'm not surprised by that, but I'm not interested in taking home $200/week more if I'm going to be working with:

1) Assholes
2) Charlatans
3) Stuffed shirts

The people that I work with now are pretty much 100% cool. The ones that aren't cool are being forced to turn cool by the rest of us, and if they don't turn cool they'll be driven out.

x Marc Writing....

well...

not much of anything is happening right now...

I started writing story ideas this summer for a serial in anticipation of having some more time for this stuff...

Hasn't happened yet.

I haven't thought about it much. I'm getting personally challenged at work, in a good way. When it goes bad then I want to do something else but as far as work goes, it's still pretty good.

I have to think about this some more. I have to recognize the fact that I have no creative goals at the moment. I have been doing one or two projects per year since 2005 but not much writing at all.
