worx angx redux

A lot of you made helpful and thoughtful commentary when I posted this. It's been a long weird couple of years. Of the original three, one has been laid off, I am in charge of the team, and am managing the third largest project in the firm. (I am also losing my shit as a consequence, but anyway.) We have two new hires and eyes on a third and have blown away our revenue targets two years in a row. Also, losing the guy we just lost has been a loooooong painful process.

In other words be careful what you wish for. I haven't slept right in many many months.

The reward for excellent work remains more work, I see.

This isn't exactly related, but I'll share this anyway. The leader of my team (the boss of my boss) recently said that if he won the lottery, he'd still come to work every day because he loves it. I was like sorry dude, I'd still have A job, but I'm pretty sure I'd call in sick the day I found out, come back to give my two weeks notice, and say SMELL YOU LATER SUCKERS. Cable - so so rewarding for him, I guess.

Anyway, is there a light at the end of the tunnel that might mean some good nights of sleep?
