I know it has been awhile since I have been on. I just have felt out of touch with this site. I have not been doing anything besides sometimes walking. I am not tracking. I am not doing long walks, and I am not walking to work. Also, I have had a lot going on. I might try to get on more often. I just feel overwhelmed currently.
I started looking for a townhouse back in February, which has not gone well. My lease is almost up on my apartment. I have a ceiling that leaks whenever it rains, and I am on the top floor. The apartment office has known about this since last August and has not fixed it. So in a month I will be moving apartments.
The company I work for has been going through some restructuring.
My job title is Applications Engineer, or AE for short. Previously AE's and Sales both answered to an office manager. The office managers then did things different at each location. We still have office managers for some day to day stuff, but last year they had an office manager also become a Sales Manager, and in March we got an AE Manager. The Sales Manager and AE Manager have been working on getting things uniform. We want all AE's to submit cases the same way, and turn in reports the same way.
The person who become the AE Manager was one of the coworkers I regularly spend lunch with (him, his brother who is our IT person, and I spend lunch together, and sometimes meet up outside of work for other things). He was an AE who did a lot for customers, but now he is doing more things for AE's or our company. Some of what he used to do is being given to the rest of us AE's, and a good amount has gone to me. I already knew a lot about what he does and we are in the same office, so it makes sense a good portion has gone to me. I like that I am doing more, and I am traveling more.
In May, I spent 2 weeks in Colorado for customers. This month, I have a week in Louisiana, and a week in Tulsa. There is talk of me and another AE regularly traveling to our Houston, and Colorado offices.
I also took a vacation to Greece in May. I spent a few days in Mykonos and a few days in Santorini. I never got a Mr. Mime, but I did get a lot of Voltorb and Magnemite while walking around Santorini (Pokemon GO).
I am behind on my WOW duties, and currently do not even have a guild.
I started collecting Dice Masters back in Dec/Jan. My coworker, now manager, got me into it. We occasionally play together. So I have spent some of my time collecting, building decks, or testing decks.
Hope everyone is doing well.
