Posted in the day job by verbalcroquis on April 26, 2006

I haven't been writing much about my day job lately because it's been a source of frustration for me the past month or so.  I've been trying to work towards organizing the design team better, so we're more focused and efficient, but I've been getting a lot of balking and procrastination.  I think the main problem is that I'm the youngest person at the company I work for and they don't have a lot of faith in me to do anything but bust out some good jackets.

Eh, I don't like complaining.  The real reason for this post is to tell you that a potentially very good thing happened at work yesterday.  We got a temporary marketing and merchandising consultant.  Most people tend to dislike consultants, but if he can accomplish half of what he tells me he wants to accomplish, I'm feeling very hopeful for the future of this company.  I've said it before and I'll say it again–I don't work for a paycheck.  I work because I love to design and I love to see the companies I work for or with to grow and become successful.  I would love to see San Francisco fashion design really prosper, one company at a time. 

I refuse to divulge much information about my day job (the rest of my life is an open book), but I will say that waking up in the morning is a lot easier and I'm really looking forward to the big design meeting tomorrow. (Insert hopeful little happy dance here.)
