New Job

I don't really talk about personal things on here much, because I like to see it as more of an opinion column and soapbox than an simple blog.

But when life changes, sometimes it can be worth noting.

As you might have guessed from the title, I have a new job. I went from a figurative shit storm to a literal one, and am loving the work more than the last. I'm out of mail sorting (and all the jazz that went along with it) and have moved into dog daycare and kennelling. It's been a little more than a decade since I worked in this industry, and it's good to be back.

I did take a pay cut, and am guaranteed fewer hours each week, but I get shorter shifts, decently-sized breaks between shifts on those days I cover multiple shifts, and more flexibility in scheduling.

And to top it all off, animal-assisted therapy while I work. Well, that's what in calling it at least.

I'm a Wrangler (and yes, that's my official job title).
