  • What games are you playing right now?

    My kid is finally starting to get into gaming and she loves Minecraft, so we've been playing a ton of that lately.

  • How did it go?

    Well the top half of this thread was mostly positive, so glad to hear that things are going well in general for the majority of you guys.

    @Mecandes I'm sorry to hear that man. Stay strong.

    @Smoreninja Sorry for your loss man.

    Anyway, after being AWOL for the past few months, I figure here would be a good place to start posting. So I ended up getting promoted to district manager in March of 2016. Since then, due to many factors, I've been getting progressively busier at work. In Septemberish of 2016 work started getting very stressful and as a result I started sleeping pretty poorly and started having health issues. I'd wake up at 3 am pretty much every night and start to worry about bullshit at work that I had to deal with. I'd have massive anxiety and really bad acid reflux to the point that I thought I'd developed an ulcer or something. This continued on for several months. I started looking for a new job. Not really all that hard truthfully as there wasn't a whole lot that would get me equivalent to what I was making.

    Finally in about June I said fuck it, why am I letting this shit get to me? I started busting my ass at work to clean up my district, left all the bs at work and stopped swearing all the little stuff. Now I have the smoothest running district in the city, I actually sleep and don't wake up in the morning feeling like a bag of smashed assholes. As a bonus, we got a new Service Manager (who I report to) in October that has made my job even easier. That's pretty awesome considering the last guy wasn't really ready for the job and was a huge contributing factor in my stress levels.

    Family wise, things have been fine, probably better now that I'm not going to up and die on them due to stress levels going through the roof.

    So all that being said, I'd say my goals for the year are to try and help the other district managers get their shit squared away and lose all the fucking weight I put on when I was in my slump.
