Keep your eyes open for me…

By kate on October 7th, 2004

Because of some recent changes at my company, I’m less content to stay there indefinitely than I was before. So, I’ve polished up the old resume and am sending out some feelers to people.

Quick Kate Update

By kate on September 12th, 2004

Shitty week, part three

By kate on January 8th, 2004

Today my office was blindsided by surprise layoffs.   I have already weathered one round a few months ago, where they got rid of most of one department. Today the powers that be decided to give the ax to seven people sprinkled throughout the company. (Fortunately, I was not one of them.)   Some of […]

What I Want to be When I Grow Up

By kate on September 29th, 1999

I assume most adults grow out of their childhood career fantasies. Except for the real astronauts, spies, and movie stars, I assume grown-ups’ work fantasies involve promotions and raises, or maybe working for themselves one day. Except me. I want to be a cat burglar. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not at all interested in […]
