I figured I'd post to keep you all informed, and prove that I am still kicking. The storm was way less impactful where I live. Besides the fact that my return to work date is TBD, not much really happened. I kind of got stuck at Emily's place, since they decided to shut down all public transit that went to my apartment. They finally got the 7 train up and running this morning, yay! Mason and Milo were pretty nice, and only attacked me a few times. Emily was kind enough to let me eat her food. I even cooked some of it.
S&P down on Water Street (ironic, am I right!?) is still uninhabitable, this is a direct quote from my boss. I will be working from home all next week as well. Not too shabby, besides the part about still being in training. Basically, this means I really won't do that much. We still have to get all of our communications with clients checked, just to make sure we aren't making too much up as we go.
While I'm on the subject, I really like my job. It should have a lot of future potential. I really like what I'm learning. I get to soak up as much cool market information as I want everyday. I also get to take S&P Capital IQ home with me and explore further. It's basically like I get to have Bloomberg terminal in my home. It's great, and a definite job perk if you're as nerdy as I am. The program I'm in last anywhere from 1 year to 1.5 years. I shooting for the 1 year track. After that you're made and account manager. The pay increases and you get to actually visit clients.
I'm not sure what else is new. I'm still dating Emily, it's going really well. Right now she's just staring at her computer preparing to continue her fight with some guy on facebook about politics. Overall it's a lot of fun. Her two kids are still somewhat of a shock. I figure life is what it is and we all get along great, so we may as well enjoy it.
