Isn't it amazing how some stuff just seems to work out? Last week, our internet connection at work was running REALLY slow so I didn't bother logging onto ivillage or any of my other hangouts. I have also lost my MSN messenger...it mysteriously vanished from my system. Without internet disruption, I was able to focus and prepare three excellent presentations last week (*tho the research was painful w/slow internet). I just got back from a very promising meeting where I discovered that I not only MADE my career for the next couple of years, I am probably going to see a substantial increase in salary! (I just got a raise two weeks ago, heehee) I am flabbergasted...these are very lean times for environmental work & I had no idea these presentations were going to be so intregal. I just really impressed the right ppl. Part of this is my hard work (training to be a better present) and all that extra time I had to work the presentations :)

Well, I better get back to work...I have a presentation on monday, LOL!

Hope everyone else is doing well. Go.

That's awesome - congratulations! I totally agree, things generally do work themselves out, and sometimes something that initally appears bad will end up working out for the best. It's such a nice surprise when that happens!

Hee hee, the internet is such a huge time-sucker, isn't it? I tend to get into ruts where I spend too much time on the internet at work, and I always feel so guilty about it! Must stop that . . .

btw, I'm new here, and really liking these boards . . . have a good weekend! :-)

Isn't it amazing what we can get accomplished when there's nothing else to focus on? I do my best grading at school because I'm not tempted by the tv or computer.

Congrats on the raise, Go. You really deserve it, and have for a LONG time!!
