Like A Fine Wine

I now have proof, it is true, we do get better with age. When I graduated from college, I struggled to reach the minimum 50wpm on the exit typing test. Today, I took a timed typing test at a interview with a job placement agency. I easily got 53 wpm and ZERO errors. I was also given a spelling test, a computer literacy test, and a basic medical procedures test. I am happy to report that I scored well on all. Yep, even the spelling!

Even with my success on the recent tests, looking for a job is not my favorite task. That is probably why I tend to find a job I like and become like a piece of the furniture. I actually worked with one company/dr. for 13 years and would probably still be there had my husband not gone back to school which relocated us to another state.

While some say the "grass is always greener on the other side" I prefer to remember that the grass gets watered because of the pay check that I am receiving at this job, so why bother to look elsewhere? Currently though I have no paycheck with which to water the grass and I am hoping that doing well on the placement agencies tests will help to provide the nourishment the garden needs.

Tonight however, I am just happy to raise my glass in a toast to getting older and wiser.

I worked for one company for 21 years, and only left because my project was cancelled and my entire group laid off. I've been at my current company for 11-1/2 years.
