It’s Complicated

Why am I doing this?

Hmmmm. Posting my first blog entry here and am wondering, how much do I say?

I suppose I can start off with what happened. What lead me to blog.

I quit my job.

I’m 40, single, a woman and one day, I just thought, fuck it.

No, that’s a lie. I’d been thinking about it for a while. See, I knew I was being passed over for promotion. I had known for a few months and

My thinking finally caught up with my feelings, I guess. So, this past March after all the promotions were announced and I wasn’t on that list, which I knew I wouldn’t be, I left.

I didn’t even bother to go in. I had stayed home the day before because there was an impending snow storm and the company had figured out from previous snow storms, that it was much more productive to keep everyone at home. At least, the senior managers wouldn’t have to hear from the more junior managers about how onerous their trek in was, how heroic an effort they made merely by getting into their car and onto a train. And, the junior managers won’t have to figure out how to get work done when half of their workforce was pretending to be stuck at home.

I know, I know. The cynicism is unhealthy. Which is why I quit. Which is why I’m taking the summer off and traveling to Laos and Bali. I will find myself there! Or at least, slough off seven years of corporatitis and un-cynical myself.

Don’t know if that’s possible, but let’s see. And hey, I’m done with my first post.
