That's really cool.

I like my new job so far. I started in January working at University out here. The average age of a student is 26, and many are first generation college students. So it's different than my Big Ten/Big East/MVC background, but it's really rewarding.

I do work with a guy though who is insufferable. 50 years old and acts like a 12 year old. He's been openly talking around the office about wanting to get a new job and leave, so on April 1 he posts "I'm resigning from the university today. it's been a great ride but I'm ready to move back home." A bunch of students replied wishing him luck.

I spent about an hour thinking about the process to replace him, etc. Then he drops an APRIL FOOLS :LOL

The fuck? Adults do this shit? I guess he got me and all but fuck that.

That's infuriating. I overheard a gaggle of women in the office sending emails to their co workers posing as their manager (forwarding her signature, etc.) telling people they're fired. Sad part is, she supported it. Thank god it's in a completely different organization from mine, but still, I can't imagine being on the receiving end of that "prank."

Figured I'd post the antithesis of this thread for today...

I received my yearly compensation document for 2017 yesterday and WOW, it floored me. Being a guy who attended college for a while but never graduated, maintaining gainful employment has always been a huge deal to me. I always have this pang in the back of my brain about if I ever did lose my job, how difficult would it be for me to get a new one. Anyway, I've been with the company for 11 years now and things are really starting to pay off literally and figuratively especially now that my divorce was just recently completely paid off. I am just extremely thankful.

I made my final student loan payment ever yesterday.

It was strangely anti-climactic.

Apparently the night time security guard where I work was caught running around naked early this morning. Work is a little more interesting today.

Just applied for a job that would move me from administration to faculty. A raise and free summers.

Would be really cool. We'll see

Good luck. Weren't you doing college baseball play-by-play at some point, or am I confusing you with someone else?

In the middle of building 300 physician order sets, each one with anywhere from 10 - 80 medication orders, with each order having about 20 data points to build out.

To put that in context, that's maybe a quarter million data points - or, individual instances of data entry - that need to be built. By me. Alone.

Anyone have any advice on how to stay sane and refrain from torching my laptop and taking the first plane to the other side of the planet?

You live in Colorado, so I know you know the answer to this question.
