Journal: Work Assignments 8

Journal by vergil
I've recently been shifted to another part of my organization. Now instead of focusing my attention on customer support (phones, tickets, etc.) and working on writing documentation during off-peak hours, I'm responsible for writing, generating web content and helping manage the back-end of web services. Although I'm swamped with assignments, I'm really happy with my job, esp. since it seems that the more I learn, the more responsibilities I'll have. Plus I'll be able to do meaningful projects during work -- and not have to scavenge time outside of work.

I've noticed something about the way I conduct my work life. Although I'm not always as productive as I'd like to be, I always take my work home w/ me, whether that means I'm constantly planning projects in my head (even at social occaisions), or writing from home. I can only think of two jobs I've held where I left my work at work -- one was a security guard position; the other involved unloading trucks.

I'm going to have to bust my ass this weekend finalizing some lengthy end-user Unix documentation. Fun assignment, but I really have to deliver.
