radlilim: (Gen I'm fine)
[personal profile] radlilim
To start with, I am happy that I have a job. I'm happy that my company appreciates me enough to give me pay increases as a improve my department and sends me to training and conferences to learn more about my "new" field.

I just wish I liked what I do.

Sometimes I'll be in a meeting or writing an email explaining something, and I'm just hit with all of this knowledge I know have about shipping and fulfillment and billing and using excel and how order management and warehouse management software works and despair that this knowledge has replaced typefaces and kerning and XML and page design and pagination automation. It's been so long since I did any of that, I'm not sure I could. I'd have to learn all over again, since I know the software has changed so much.

It's so unfair that the clients of the companies I used to work for decided that a cheaper per page price was worth more than the quality that me and people like me could do. It's also very unfair that due to high populations in other countries and an over abundance of smart and highly trained people were able to destroy my industry domestically.

I do like curry, maybe I should just move to India and lead a department there?

Today is one of those days I wish we had more booze at home. And I had the freedom and time to actually drink.
