I'm at the hospital on a Friday afternoon, but in a good way. I'm still working in the HR department here, and everyone else around me has gone home because of the snow. As a contractor, I feel like I need to be here, at least physically for now. If I have to be here, but I'm caught up on my projects, I figure that I would update my livejournal.


Things are going pretty well here. I don't think that I could do what I do without having worked at ADP, but I'm still glad I'm not at ADP. Working here, I don't have to work 12-14 hour days and commute by car. And even though I know my sense of worth doesn't need to come from other people, I still feel appreciated here. I was in a staff meeting this week, and this guy was going over a project that I helped him on. He said, "And then there's X project," and then he pointed to me and said, "That guy's awesome."

I recently found out that they have found money to keep me at least through June, although some things are uncertain after that. There may be a short period of time in the July-August time frame where I have to work somewhere else for a bit, but my superisor hopes to get a full-time job approved for me by the start of the fiscal year, which is September. We shall see.

One upside of the contractor bit is that they are ok with me taking time off for the GNOME foundation-sponsored hackfest trip to Brno. That is one good thing about being a contractor. You can just tell them, "I will be out for these days," and they just let you go. I am looking forward to seeing my GNOME homies during that trip. People from Ubuntu-Austria have given me tips on where to stay in Vienna, too.

It's about time to head out, so this is all for now. I hope lives are peaceful in LJ-Land.
