10 Years! 

Yesterday was my 10 year anniversary at work, today I received a certificate and pin for this milestone. 

I was living in Washington when I phone interviewed for this job and was hired over the phone. I’d never even stepped a foot on this place until August 11th 2003 my first day of work. This company was a little overwhelming at first because of how big it is (there are over 10,000 people that work here, it’s like a city)  but I quickly adapted and it became my job. A job that I enjoy, a job that I’m good at and take pride in my work. Yes I have said bad things about working here but that is the corporate side, the side that’s making money for it’s share holders. The people I work with on a daily basis are the same as me, trying to do there best, provide for their families and try to get a little ahead in life. 

It’s been a quick ten years and a lot of things have changed in my life, some bad and some good. I have an amazing son who just started his first day as a freshman in high school today (he wasn’t in school yet when I started here) and I’m so proud of him. I also have an amazing woman in my life, one that understands me and loves me, and I love her very much.
