    So, my managers/bosses on my project got pulled into an impromptu mini project, essentially leaving me all alone to run with our current project.

    Yes, an entry level analyst running a project. I held all the meetings today and briefed them back so it's cool that they're giving me this responsibility instead of putting the project on hold for three weeks. Granted, I'm not going to be meeting with the senior C-suite folks like my VP does, but I get to hold the meetings and run them which is cool. It's great to see that they trust in my ability to do this.

    Also awesome is the fact that all my meetings tomorrow got cancelled, so I asked my manager if I could fly home earlier. He said sure. So I called United and they were like 'yeah you can but there's a change penalty fee,' but I sweet talked her into waiving it.

    BOOM.

    :slayer:

    Time to go to the gym, work out, and buy terribly-overpriced-but-super-convenient RTD protein shakes (of course, I wouldn't buy that stuff on my own dime).

    wearing a tattered shirt and boxers as old as my marriage, with chips and lagunitas ipa and anchor steam in front of me. I felt happy.

    Looks very tasty... But that fat ass in me, says that's not dinner. More like a afternoon snack or lunch.

    Thanks guys.

    Work is still stressful as all hell (more like the traveling is, I guess).

    C-suite: CEO, CFO, COO, CIO, CTO, etc.
