New Job

Hi Everyone,

I know I keep being sporadic with my posts. I got a new job! I’m making robots now! My contract ended at my old job so I had to spend a lot of time and stressed out energy searching and interviewing for a new job. So goes the life of a contract engineer. Fortunately this is a permanent position so I won’t have to worry about that anymore. I’m really excited about this job. It’s been one of the neatest places I’ve ever worked and my projects are pretty damn rad. The hours are a little longer though and the commute is 2-3 times longer than my last job so I have even less time than usual. But hey, it’s a stimulating, fast paced job, and I have an income again! Yay!

It’s so stressful having to find a new job. Then even more stressful wondering if you’ll actually be able to do the new job. However I feel like I’m more than qualified for this now that I’ve been there for a couple weeks.

And I have to say. This is by far my favorite job ever. I have never felt so productive so fast. So included. Previously, I’ve always had an EXTREME disconnect between my actually personality and my work personality. Like I was actually two different people. At this job I actually feel like I can fit in a bit more. The people there are younger, more inclusive, kind of quirky. It’s a very neat atmosphere. I’ve never experienced anything like it. It honestly feels really good.

It’s a bit overwhelming too. The shear amount of information I’m taking in is mind boggling. I’m already working on some crazy projects. It’s pretty exciting.

However I get up at 6 in the morning and often I don’t get home until well after 6 in the evening. Fortunately the days go fast there because I love what I do but I have to figure out how to manage my time so I can write more.  I am really trying to figure my time out. Work, exercise, new boyfriend (who wow, is that going well), and I really want to write more for this blog. It’s important to me. These last couple weeks have just been such a whirlwind.

I’ll get there. In the mean time I’ll be releasing robots and writing as often as I can.




  1. Hi :) congrats on the new job and all the other awesome things in your life right now. You deserve it!

  2. Really glad for you Haven!
    All the hard work you've done with yourself seems to be paying off now and that's wonderful. Thanks for sharing this with us. It came like a bright sun ray in a gloomy day for me.

  3. Ditto what Ben said.

  4. I couldn't have found your blog at a better time in my life ... as true as it is, misery loves company, and I have a feeling we'd be very good friends.. from a distance of course (lol)... anyhow ... one question before I wish you and your anxious move well, how do I, or can I sign up to your blog?

    Feels really good not be alone on "the crazy train"

  5. I understand how do you feel, my job always gives me the opportunity to meet amazing people and for this reason is not just a way to pay the bill, and also it's very challenging. The other side of the coin is that some people forget to have fun and the totally forgot how to play. Protect the child that you have inside you, not only the ambition. Don't forget to play and be creative, and you will enjoy your job even more.


Leave me a comment! It makes me feel good and less paranoid about talking to myself =)
