Knowing what you're worth

So, as I have mentioned before I have a new job. This new job didn't become official until Friday, but the part I am quite proud of is how I handled the income aspect. A few days earlier my boss told me what the salary was going to be (I received a bump when I took the temporary position) and I will admit I thought it would be a little more. I had a night to mull it over before we talked about it seriously and when I met with her the next day I asked for more money. The Katie from 6 months ago would never have done that, but I wanted to be true to myself so we negotiated for more money. I have to admit I am quite proud of myself. I feel like am more self assured when it comes to my career and that is good. It makes it easier to be decisive and to have people respect you. I never thought I would be like this, but I'm glad I am!

2009 - busy,busy,busy

So, the year has already been you can tell from the title. I have been settling in with the new job and trying to be a good and fair boss. I have also tried putting myself out there in terms of dating and I actually went on a date last week. This is the point where I would like to tell you we hit it off, but then I would have to worry about growing a nose the size of pinochio's... Let's just say it was interesting and will make a good story for years to come. I am not off the dating wagon, but I need a little time to regroup and plan my future strategy. I guess the most exciting thing that has entered my life in recent weeks is the iPod touch which I am currently posting from. It is so sweet. Loving it - you have to get one!! Alright so it is a quick post, but I wanted to drop by and say 'hey.' So, 'hey'. :)
