i know right?
10 large + 1 day tellecommuting a week!

Got Game?
okay, so 10 large and a 4 day on-site week aint something to exactly sneeze at. But you know you *hate* it there, and you've told me enough times you have no way of advancing in that spot. Ten grand, though, once you get to *net*, aint enough I don't think to keep you in that kind of misery for the next year.

the met has nothing in the kitty - unfortunately. i knew that walking in to the negotiations.

i shoulda aimed higher lol.

I will just say that I envy you the fantastic position you're in. The only hitng I'd say is to decide if you'd be happy staying where you are, or if you want a change. Personally, working for the Met sounds fabulous.

i do too
i am really torn about this - the money/benefits pays out nicely if i stay, but i have more upwards mobility at the MET...

Re: i do too
go with the job that will let you maintain your current (or gladly livable) standard of living whilst also being the one that makes you HAPPIEST.

though i could be tempted to say otherwise, theres more to it than the $... you gotta have a job that really gets you up in the morning, you know? my recent job switch taught me this...

my .02 ;)

I concur and reiterate; Quality of life is better than Qauntity of money....

Re: i do too
there is indeed a fine line, as as salt-n-peppa said, both are very necessary.

but the older i get, the more i enjoy the quality over the $.

yeah, i hear that
the idea of being able to set my life back to a 0 balance again though, sooner, is v. appealing to me.

Re: yeah, i hear that
they need to make a tare button for life.

looks like youre going through some nice catharses, what with the cleaning out and job switch. its good. ive done much of the same this year...
Nov. 24th, 2004 09:49 am (UTC)
someone needs to get that shit in production.
Nov. 24th, 2004 09:58 am (UTC)
Re: yeah

and hey, id take a catharsis over a cthulsis any day!
Nov. 24th, 2004 10:08 am (UTC)
catharsis involves way fewer tentacles

Re: i do too
B, have you expressed your dismay at no upward mobility? Maybe a simple job title change or shifting of roles?

It's definately a fine line to walk
Nov. 24th, 2004 09:00 am (UTC)
They met your terms? Holy crap... Well, now you've just got to consider whether one job or the other will be better for you in the long run, mentally and emotionally speaking...
Nov. 24th, 2004 09:07 am (UTC)
the looing forward to work bit has some allure to it - if i stay here, i am staying for a while i imagine.
Nov. 24th, 2004 09:08 am (UTC)
This is a pretty high class problem. And pretty awesome, too.

You have till after the holiday, right?
Nov. 24th, 2004 09:11 am (UTC)
i do
but that doesn't help the stain in my underwear NOW!

Nov. 24th, 2004 09:43 am (UTC)
damn you
and your scathing hebrew wit
Nov. 24th, 2004 10:42 am (UTC)
Re: damn you
Knowing that you laughed is the best part.
Nov. 24th, 2004 09:30 am (UTC)

Now I want to be your butler more than ever.
