I realized yesterday that I want to get an A in my job. I've been conditioned since I was 10 years old to work for a grade, and measure my effort by the grade. Since they were so motivating for me, I find myself missing graded evaluation at work. I'm kind of insecure about my job performance anyway (friends can attest to the fact I thought I was doing a mediocre job at my summer internship last year ... when it turned out my editors were very pleased). But the job is going really well, and I got good feedback on my first six weeks from my bosses, so I'm excited to keep improving in all areas.
Here's a look at my last two weekends in pictures:
|Pre-Road Trip Anticipation Face ... at 1 a.m.|
|Amish Country! In Goshen, IN|
|Mt. Baldy! Never thought Lake Michigan would remind me so much of the Outer Banks|
|atop of Mt Baldy, all covered in sand, I lost my poor meatball...|
|Balloon launch at the Elkhart County Fair|
|We enjoyed this beautiful sunset from the ferris wheel.|
Mom came up for a delightful weekend visit last weekend.
|One of the fanciest restaurants in town sent me this gift card for starting my new job. So Mom and I went there when she visited me.|
|Say goodbye to productivity.|
|Suspenders! Someone who shares my appreciation for them.|
|Two cheese coneys from Skyline... not really my favorite actually.|
