Yesterday I got a nice surprise. I was called into the CIOs office, where I was congratulated for working here for 6 months as of April 1 and I was getting a pay raise. It was nothing spectacular, just an extra $2000/year but I know that there is basically no ceiling to the amount of money I could make at this job if I become the expert I’d like to be.

Heather ordered a birthday cake for me from the cupcake store. (yes, all they sell is cupcakes, and they’re the best cupcakes in the world) I can’t wait to try their cake.
