Today was my boss's first day back from vacation. Our 1-on-1 call was basically me listing off all the things that I did while she was out for 2 weeks and things I needed her to do before she leaves for a week long trip next week. At the end of the call, she said that she had some good news for me. Because of my "exceeded expectations" performance rating for this past year's work, she's rewarding me with a raise! I wasn't sure if this was going to be possible given the budget cuts, but I'm so thankful that she (and the leadership at work) sees the value in my work. :)
This is perfect timing since that extra money can go towards my CrossFit gym membership. Which I used this morning for the 6:30 AM session. The coach for this class was one of the co-owners. He was nice, but super chill. I miss the regular coach's energy. I need it so early in the morning. "COME ON, SISTERS!"
