My one-year review went better than expected. Only a 3% raise, but it's the max they're giving this year (after two years of no increases!) so I can't complain too much. More importantly, I negotiated a restructuring of the department that will move me from a generalist working on several different publications as needed to focusing on a few and putting my own imprint on them. I might also get to take a Quark and Photoshop class which would help in my overall plans for world domination. Or at least fleshing out my resumé.
Plus, I'll get a six-month review that might net me another increase and an official promotion by the end of the summer. All in all, a nice way to end the week.
And today is pay day so it's off to Midtown Comics for lunch!
