work: they like me

I just got out of a meeting about our reorganization that was about two parts rumor control and one part concrete information. The latest word has me continuing to report to Doug, my current boss, which makes me very happy. Interestingly enough, it also has me/us being aligned under the collection function.

To me, that's really neither here nor there. But it was embarrassingly touching after that, when people were going around the room for questions & comments, people who were being aligned under the examination function kept saying they wished I was going to exam too, instead.

I can't express how much better it is to work somewhere people think what I'm good at is important. Not having to keep my head down and hope for tolerance, hope that I'm useful enough (or at least invisible enough) to get along.
