Me: Blah blah blah blah Primus. I get to see one of my top ten bands tonight. I lose my shit at a Primus show in a way that I do not lose my shit under any other circumstances. I reach Pea-like levels of hyper-activity when Les cracks the whip.
So I finally got around to asking my boss for that promotion today. A little back-story, first. A little over a year ago he actually offered me a promotion in the company, but at the time I thought I was nearing the completion of my flight training, so I didn't want to waste his time or mine by taking a position that would require lots of additional training at work, only to have to quit soon afterward. Fast-forward to today...my flight school is closed, I'm sick and tired of the aviation field, and I honestly don't have the money to continue flying anymore anyway. I really like my boss and it's a decent company, and I've got great insurance and vacation time, so I figured I would suggest the opportunity to him again. His answer when I asked him about it today? With a big smile on his face he said, "Fuck ya, dude!" Hahaha god damn I love having a rad boss. The company has been slow as shit lately, so it might not be something I can immediately obtain, but he seemed genuinely excited to hear that I might be sticking around for a considerable amount of time now. He even said something along the lines of me being a "rare" type of person that he's always wanted for the department, but respected my goals that I had for myself outside of the company. Nothing feels better than having an awesome boss to work for, and one that really appreciates you as well. It doesn't hurt that he's a huge Sounders fan and is kind of a big-time microbrewer as well. Smiles all around.
Did my first arterial blood gas sample on a real human being today...but what really made me smile was sending it through the vacuum delivery system that the hospital uses. It's like there, and then it get's sucked into another dimension or something...I even got to wrap it in bubble wrap first, who doesn't love playing with bubble wrap?!
