I have been focused on little else besides my websites, job, and peace of mind the past couple months. My romantic life was getting a bit unruly, so I had to put it on the back burner. The only person I’ve spent a significant amount of time with outside of work lately is Tori. We’ve both been enjoying time away from the rest of the world. She’s been helping me stay grounded. She has bipolar disorder as well. We’ve had several episodes together over the years. Both of us have learned a lot about our illness and we try to support each other. I love my Tori. She’s the one person who completely gets me and loves me no matter what happens.
The decision to focus on my job worked out. Around the end of June, I was chosen to take the Expert Technical Support Representative exam and I aced it. I earned the TSR 3 title and a $1.02 per hour raise. We had a center-wide shift bid shortly thereafter and I got one of my top picks which was Sunday-Wednesday 11-10pm.
About a week and a half ago, Kurt, my former supervisor approached me with an offer to switch to another department. That department, the Welcome Center, was created about four months ago, and I was approached then to join the team. I declined because I liked my shift and the team I was on and the available shifts for the Welcome Center sucked ass in my opinion.
