Promotion and anniversaries!

Posted May 31st, 2013 at 8:25 PM by Xander Olivieri

Starting off with the best news~

I got a promotion at work recently! I went from an ordinary cashier at Toys R Us to a Supervisor. It was about a three week transition, but I start all my trainings this week and its going to be one hell as my instructor is actually off so she left me a list of how to do things and how to pull up what I need to do after showing me a few basic things the weeks before.

Even with her gone I'm so totally ready for this. Its really close to what I plan on doing with the rest of my life career wise anyway so I see this as a great opportunity. My Managers were even surprised at how fast I caught on to the new work schedule and routines.

So happy with my new position and can't wait to really get into it~

Made a 1 year Mod anniversary a few days ago. I was modded May 28th 2012. So I'm a few days late. In about 3 more days I hit my three year anniversary here on PC. It has had some ups and downs. Honestly if I weren't a mod I would probably still be lurking around occasionally just to gather news on the new games. I dunno what I'd do if I were to step down or get fired.

Just makes me think of all the time I spent here and all the people I wouldn't have met. Some I'm not to fond of our meetings but I've met some really great people. Almost kinda wish I weren't so Anti-Social and would talk with people more.

Oh...uh...about my VMs being hidden. I'm kinda in an awkward mood right now. I dunno if its because we've have about 14 different people in the house or if its because of my usual depression, but I don't really want to talk to people right now. Its part of my anti-social behavior. After I deal with too many people I need "me" time where I just don't talk to people I don't have to....which means a lot less posting from me all around after this blog is posted. May not even respond to any posts here until a week or so later.

I'll post if I absolutely have to, but it'll be for something big like new news or if I need to talk with other mods or something...I dunno. I may not talk to anyone depends on how I feel and if I'm in a good mood. I dunno....its about time to get back on my meds so yay -w-;;

    I feel sorry for the problems you're going through right now, but happy late 1 year mod anniversary and I hope you remain part of the staff team for many years to come. And you're very helpful and knowledgeable too which is great!

    And happy early 3 year PCversary too, hope you enjoy that shiny new veteran's emblem when that comes.

    We all need our me time, I can relate. =P

    Anyways, well, so much to congratulate on. I'll start with the biggest one, congratulations on the promotion! Sounds very impressive, I wish you the best of luck on it. Sounds like you might not need it though. Haha. And of course, congratulations on making it to 3 years as a member and a whole year as a mod. Hopefully you'll stick around for some more time. =D

    Congratulations again!

    Great job on the promotion! You'll have to blog and let us know about your experiences with it later on. :) And congrats to the mod anniversary as well. Keep your head on your shoulders, man. You've got a strong will, ya know?

    Sorry about the other problems. I definitely relate to just shutting down and not wanting to talk to anyone. At least you shut them off instead of leaving them so that people don't post on your profile and feel ignored or whatever. But yeah, feel better soon.

    Good job on your promotion man. I know you've mentioned your career goal of being an accountant on my blog before so it looks you could be getting closer to that which is good. And also happy one year of modding to you! It's a bit late but still.And early congrats to 3 years of PC , hope you can stick around as a mod and member for many years to come.

    Sorry about the other problems. I can relate and so it's understandable if you don't want to talk to anyone. Though feel better alright? You seems like a cool person.
