Is It Just Me…

Is It Just Me…

…or did this week take forever to end? I’ve been very busy at the office, and yesterday just vanished in the blink of an eye, but really, how is it just now mid-afternoon on Friday?

I guess it’s good that I’m so busy — I wouldn’t want to be thought of as a slacker and rather, that I can be relied upon in a crunch. I was given a document yesterday to modify and reformat into our own styles. It’s part of our Lync roll-out, and I’m not quite sure what happened, but Wednesday night, our director decreed that she didn’t like the documentation created internally, and wanted us to adapt a vendor’s document.

Documentation adaptation is a specialty of mine, and my boss handed it over to me around 11 AM. He didn’t actually tell me when it was due, but I very quickly grokked that it was important when he began coming into my office every twenty to thirty minutes, asking if how it was going and if there was anything he could do for me.

The document was really complex, as it turned out, and was a big challenge for me.

I handed it over to him at 5:15, in perfect form. I made a quick adjustment this morning, but haven’t heard from my manager or the director yet. I expect it to sail through at this point, as it’s the best thing we have and it’s needed for Monday.

Even though my review is done on the management level, it’s still good to have something high-profile go so well so close to review time.

Any road, we have a Tony Awards/Pride party in the office shortly. Have a great weekend, folks.
