>>thanks, emoot, I like that verse.
>>I'm thinking that, as low paid as it is, I could do more with being an editor. I just got some constructive criticism from a co-worker that he felt more typos were going through than before, and that the former editor (a very manipulative 3/2 Social) did something much better than I do -- she went to each analyst and sat with them and tried to instruct them on how to improve their writing.
>>He's right -- I've been in a funk; I feel this place doesn't deserve shit from me because they didn't give me a raise with either promotion that I got, and I am not a "schmoozer" like the former editor was. I am very much a Four -- I went from being a little busybody and taking on everything for my first 2 years here, to the other extreme - I went into complete "FU" mode and now I just do the minimum.
>>Also, being on 1 mg of Xanax a day for the past year might have dulled my brain a bit. But I certainly am calmer than I was a year ago. (Anyone else here on Xanax or a related tranquilizer, could you share if it made you less mentally sharp?) Sorry, I'd rather be a bit "slower" but calmer. I know I can compensate for it -- by being more diligent and organized, could make up for being really mentally quick and bright. Hey I might as well learn now! 'Cause we're all going to get old (or die) and older brains are slower, but more steady IF you make it that way.
