Yesterday started out pretty well. Since I’ve been getting up in good order of late (although I bobbled today), I was the first person in the office besides my supervisor. He took that as an opportunity to drag me into my interim performance review. These usually go well for me. I’m not one of the slackers, my programming efforts are central to my division’s work, and I keep up to date on all the software we’re using so I’m the SharePoint/SAS/Sharp Floor guru. However, this was the first time the word “brilliance” has ever been used in one of my performance review. Personally, I think that was a little over the top; but I am working on graciously accepting praise.
