We're also being strangely busy at work. The deadline for filing 13G forms with the SEC must be approaching because we're getting a lot of those coming through. (I suppose I should mention that the work I'm doing is typesetting for Merrill Corporation, a printer in the financial industry. They print things like annual reports, quarterly reports and other filings required by the SEC.) So after class, I stuck around for another four hours helping them dig out from under the pile of work.
You know, if all I wanted to do was sleep and work, this really wouldn't be a bad shedule. Work from 3 to 11, stay up until 6 a.m. or so, sleep until 2 p.m. and head off to work. Silly me, I'd like to do more than that so I'll be glad when these two weeks are over.
Of course, then the "peak" period for work will be swiftly approaching. This means no vacation and mandatory overtime. Sigh. Happens to be just the same time as Minicon this year so I'll probably end up missing some of my favorite parts of the convention. Fortunately, there seem to be job openings that seem more to my liking arising fairly frequently. So I've got to stick through a policy-required six months of this job and then can start looking around for better jobs within the company. I also keep my ear to the ground for job opportunities outside the company.
So like I told folks when I got the job. It's not exactly what I want, but it'll keep paying the bills while I'm looking for something better. A much better position to be looking from.
