I’m still manager. But over what? In the past week, I feel the lines around what I manage blur. I had a great idea for my team, to increase efficiency, boost revenue, decrease client dissatisfaction, etc. A great idea. Turns out either others in the company had the same idea, or they took my idea and ran. So now I’m helping them take my idea and run it up the pole. I want it all to succee (it was/is a great idea). But I also harbor less benevolent emotions. It’s frustrating, and a little scary. I can’t tell what I’m going to be doing, as I thought I was cultivating and evolving my job to this new direction. Oh well.
On a happier note, Brandon proposed to his girlfriend!! Bkiller!! It’s too cool, and I’m so happy for him!
What else? Oh, I’m now in two more bands. The Brock Peterson Band, and some latino thing that I don’t know what the name is. We’re going to be a latin cover band, covering what I understand is the Elvis of salsa. The guy organizing it apparently has connections around the country, and is wanting to market us to conventions and seminars. We’ll see. It’s pretty exciting.
I’m working on a sequence of Bach’s G Minor Fugue. Kinda “Switched on Bach”. I’ve had the music sitting on or near my piano for years. I pull it out and play through the hand parts (no pedals on the piano) and get it stuck in my head for a month or so. I’m playing with it, not 100% on the voices, so we’ll see what happens with it.
My cousin Ben is in the land of the rising sun on his mission. He stayed with us for a day before he hit the MTC, and it was awesome. I should correct myself. He’s actually my second cousin. But it’s easier to say cousin.
Believe it or not, I think about my blog. I just don’t write in it. I stink. Sorry.
Oh, and Natalie wants me to say how great she is. How. I’m sorry she has a headache.
What else? I preach the gospel of Dave Ramsey. Don’t get me started, or I will start touting baby steps.
I think this is a good update for almost a year later. What a crappy blogger I am.
