And all of a sudden, things got angsty

OK, for a change I'm actually pretty freaked out.

Had an 'informal evaluation' today. Boss told me what she thought of me.
Now here it comes.... I'm doing a good job in my new function, she's glad to see I'm learning what it's like to be in the office instead of in a restaurant for a change.

BUT....

She can see this is not where I belong. My talents are not used to their full capacity. And even though she's not complaining about me in my current job, she wouldn't renew my contract next year. Because she thinks she knows that deep down inside *I* know that this is not where I want to be. She reckons that this 'cold shower' might help me re-evaluate my situation.

So, she's not disappointed in my or my work, but she still wouldn't renew my contract, because she thinks I would be happier somewhere else. Perhaps at an entertainment company, anywhere with lots of people around me. "There where the action is." In her eyes I'm not a 'behind-the-scenes' kind of guy.

She stressed that I shouldn't see this in a negative way. She knows I'm trying. She knows I'm 'pure gold'. Just not at a sales department. So, no matter if I do my best or not, next year I'll be looking for a new job again. Within the hotel, or even outside.

Why did she come to this conclusion before I did?
I wanna cry. Somebody comfort me.

*snugs Rob tight!*

It's okay.. really. Sometimes it takes a second person to see what you cant see. I know you sing.. and you sing pretty damn good. She may be right and you may be good in another field, maybe even entertainment.

Maybe now /is/ the time to stand back and look over what you accomplished so far and what you want to do in the future..

Just remember that I am here for you, just like you were here for me..

This reminds me of a certain conversation...
....I had with my superiours at Rhinofly. And I was being dispised there, because I refused to go with the flow or cheering everything from the Macromedia family (be honest with me, Fireworks SUCKS, and coldfusion does things php can do 3 times as fast, and they brag about new features that php had back in the times it was beta).

Dude, bummer, thats all I can say.
