I am saddened…

My overall contribution to the firm: “Exceeds performance”

My competency: “Met competency.”


I know I kicked ass this year! 🙁

And yes, sorry if you think I need to lower down my ego, but this is a blog anyway, and hopefully, an anonymous one at that. So in no way is my current performance at work affected by my review.

Still sucks.


About Tina

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!

    Hi Raven!

    I’ve just found your blog by coincidence and read some of it. Thank you for the effort you put in maintaining it, it often reads like a novel and I enjoyed many posts, particularly those about concerts and your travels. They really made my day (ok, evening here) and I smiled heartily at some lines. Keep up the good work!

    Best wishes,
    Goran, Croatia

    Thanks Markus for your sense of humor and Goran for your comforting words. Yes, I was disappointed with my annual performance review because I felt my work wasn’t recognized enough. Oh well, guess that’s how boss keeps your ego down on the ground. 🙂

    Hope you can keep on reading but do leave comments in the future as well. Puts a smile up my face to read notes like yours…
