I Got a Raise at Work, Kinda

So as it stands, I’m the only tech at my shop and my manager does not plan to hire anyone else for the time being.  He has trusted in me that I can do all the jobs myself and pretty much take care of things around there with his assistance.  I do believe this is very possible but surely I am taking on a much bigger load than I am used to.

It is both good and bad.  I no longer have anyone to cover for me if I am no longer able to open the shop.  That’s one of the bad things about this.  Two is that if we do get back logged and I am unable to complete all of the units that come in, we’re going to have upset clients.  We do not want upset clients.  But when I look at things from my perspective such as basically this is a raise in pay.  Things I guess, even themselves out.

I’ve been telling myself that I’ve been wanting a hire paying job.  With a hire paying job ANYWHERE, there is obviously going to be added responsibilities since I am being paid more.  Well, here it is, in front of my face, I am going to take it on full force, 100%.  No turning back now, I think.  My manager said we’ll give it a try and see how it works.  I do feel he has put his 100% faith in me that I can do this and I do have 100% faith that I can do it as well.

I just don’t want to fail anyone, or myself.  I don’t think I will and I will try to keep a positive outlook each and everyday that I go in to my job — like I’ve already been doing.

Anyway, all is well and I hope you all have a beautiful day.  I will be taking one summer course this summer, it will be an online summer course and it does have to do with my major, Computer Science.  This is one class that is needed for my Associate Degree in Computer Science.  It should be easy as cake but I’m not sure yet.  I’ll keep you all updated as usual.
