Two interview this coming week! Nice.

Also: was doing a super frustrating data thing with the Bad Boss and ... damn... for a smart guy he sure doesn't know how to read or listen. I kept explaining that the dataset he told me to look at was only for people born in 1980 and he kept sending feedback like "only look at the current data" and "the 1980 data is not relevant do not include it."

Eventually I threw my findings on a map, and APPARENTLY all he wanted for the last 2 years is for me to make pretty maps. I just did the basics (put the numbers on a map, color code with pretty colors, add a title and legend) and he was astonished. The first time in 2 years of work that he's responded to something I did entirely positively instead of nitpicking it. Maybe he didn't know I could make maps? I have definitely made them for him before...

How is that a downside? Bears are awesome!

I hope I never have to refer to a scone in spoken conversation.

Good Luck!

My long term project here at work paid off. HR created the internal position and I've applied to it. After five business days it can be closed and I'll receive the offer.

Then begin negotiations.

I've been working on this for a fuck*ng year. Tediously agitating!

Go Ash! You’ve got the spurs on and they’re all saddled up.


Got rejected from the high-paying tech job after a pretty rude interview.

I have a second interview soon for an unpaid coding thing. It’s 3 months and then they help you find a job— they make money by charging recruiters a fee to recruit their alumni. It is not a school, it’s more like a writer’s retreat for coders... people work on projects together, learn stuff together, focus. A backup plan.

Today we had an agency-wide meeting and it made me wanna puke. I can’t believe all the self-congratulation. Our projects in the past 3 years created over 6000 units of affordable housing.
Congrats, that is enough affordable housing for ... 0.07% of New Yorkers. People asked pointed questions about how low our pay is compared to other city agencies and the private sector, and they talked about how satisfying and innovative our work is. Maybe I just haven’t gotten a glimpse of the innovative part.

I submitted an anonymous question about my civil service issue (theoretically a lot of people are in the same boat) and they talked about potential “problems” as a far off thing and not a short deadline like my immediate supervisors said. I think they’re just trying to get rid of me.
