I guess my vacation was too good to be true - I holstered my Blackberry and dropped by the office today for a few hours to attend a small meeting.
Coincidentally, today's my sixth anniversary at the company - it's been one hell of a ride so far (never been bored or lacked interesting stuff to do), and it looks like it's going to take a new turn soon.
Guess I'll have to reinvent myself again - heck, I know I can do just about anything I put my mind to (got over ten years of experience to fall back on), and with the right backing change won't be an issue.
I still wish I was more in control, though, and with the upcoming changes there seems to be no way out of the technical track into full-time management, which was the personal goal I had this year.
(And no, this isn't an April Fool's. I'm just not in the mood for jokes today.)
