Breathe in....Breath out....

Got an email from my sup today. Apparently we were "ignoring emails" from our director....

Honestly, for about an hour, I forgot to follow-up. Then I did. It took awhile for the information to come in....

I didn't realize I needed to update with every little detail of the request...

Then again I guess it's part of CYA.....

I should apply CYA to my job...but I'm frustrated with it right now. I feel like I'm not using my skills at all, like I'm a piece of dirt, and I really feel like my bosses think they're better than me....

I don't like that....
I must remember, this job is only temporary...

at least I hope so...

I know I say it about three times a day but...

I need a new job...

I am seriously getting depressed about this...

Another day...

But the real question is...

When should I go to Ireland?

I get married on the 2nd of July...when is the quickest I can get over there?


I'll have to wait until I'm out of work to find that out...thank you SA....

Sad Sad Day

my site got hacked again...

Really kind of sucks. I left a port open I shouldn't have...and some script kiddie decided to attempt to break my stuff...

Luckily they didn't do any irreversable damage...I just shut down, copied all the data over to a different drive and began the process of recompling everything...better to be safe than sorry.


Kind of annoys me though...Someone decided to try to prove they're 1337.....


At least it keeps my install skills honed and helps me try to find new ways to secure my server.

Block-Rocking Beats

So I just moved this blog over to my site...let's see if it updates.


I'm in the middle of trying to get my powerbook to run linux...

Why?


Why not?!

That and I'm bored. With no Star Trek to watch...

I should mention that I have decided to watch ALL the Star Trek episodes I can...including TOS, TNG, DS9, and VOY. I'll work on enterprise later...


waiting for more to show up.....

All the leaves are brown...

Another day, another random string of despressing calls.

I need to find a way NOT to hate this...

Unfortunately...it's all I have right now...

Grey Day

Today is a boring day.

It has finally hit me that I'm failing in my career. I just graduated college I know. But to be working on a helpdesk...not implementing a majority, if any at all, of my technical skills is depressing.

My Boss thinks people should work on a helpdesk for FIVE years before moving up...


Fuck that.

FIVE years on a desk...with a four year degree?

Not happening....

I need a new job...before it starts to take me down even more.

Am I that unprepared? Are my skills that undesirable?

Is the market that bad?
