Got the promotion

May 1st, 2007 at 08:04 pm

Saving log - $0
Spending log - .65$ milk + $5.25 lunch

This morning I was called into my boss's office and was offered the promotion. On May 16th I will be packing for Paris but I will be the official boss of DJ friend (boy that'll be weird) and another co-worker.

The job grade is one step higher than the one I have, so I'm guessing it will be a $2000/yr pay raise. That and an expected 4% raise at the beginning of the next fiscal year (July) means I have a fighting chance of paying off the Paris trip within the year. I'm not sure if the job grade pay raise and the cola are additive or not.

Tried out some more settings on the camera. I figured out that it takes black & white, vivid color, cyan, and sepia. Since the MayDay rally caused a stack-up of buses, that's what I used.

    Congrats on the job......

    And, very nice on the pictures. I've been playing with my pictures on Picasa, and have found all sorts of new tricks I can do there, never thought about seeing if my camera would do that too.

    Can't wait to hear the details about your trip, I'm excited & I'm not even going! Smile

    uh oh, supervising a friend...my experience has been that they're either going to expect you to go extra easy on them and try to take advantage of that, or they're going to resent your authority and constantly challenge you.
