Nice, glad you were able to get it fixed, at least you can sell it and buy a new one!

I gave a few weeks notice at my job yesterday. I've been with this company for 5 years and was relatively happy working here. Aside from the daily stress, it's been a great place to work. I found out in June that the company was closing by the end of the year. Our entire sales force was fired that same month and i was essentially put into the position of interim CEO/Operations Manager. I've been trying to make things work with 2 temps and a warehouse staff.

A company closer to LA reached out, offered me a remote gig and a bigger salary, so i had to take that chance. My boss wasn't happy about me leaving, but i honestly don't care. There is no future for me here, it's time to move on.

Lots of achievements that may seem normal for a lot of people but for me they were kind of getting me back to sanity. Got a new job, got to know great people, my girl and have been living in a better place. It all came together in 2017 for some reason while before every year was just another year of me having sort of a good time, playing video games but nothing noteworthy to mention. I'm 27 now and I guess it comes at some point for everyone at a different time.

That's great to hear! Congrats!

I had a baby (well, my wife had it) in 2017.

There have been a lot more job openings popping up for content managers. I am very happy with my current job, but I better update my resumé just in case.

It never hurts to update your resume, bro.

Been at my job for a little over 3 months now. It's certainly getting better, but days are long. Can't complain though, takes care of my family and the benefits are good.

Totally... For one thing, less is more. I erased a ton of information that was unnecessary and tweaked it a little bit. Also I cleaned up my LinkedIn profile. Which helped a little bit too. So far so good...
