Today is my 4-year anniversary being on staff at BCC. Not that my boss or anyone will recognize that, but I’ve got it on my calendar :) Michelle convinced me to interview for the job when we saw a flyer in the program one Sunday, and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done. Since then, there have been LOTS of ups and downs, the most insane of which was the lead pastor getting fired two years ago and half the church left. But I’ve met some amazing people, worked alongside some of the greatest talents in the business, and made some lifelong friends. It’s a bittersweet anniversary, to say the least. I’d pictured it being different. You know, without the impending job loss.
But it’s almost over, and that’s both good and bad. I’m tired of it. I’ll miss what it could have and should have been. I may continue with them by doing contract work, I may not. I’ve told them that any contractor worth half their salt will cost at least three times what they were paying me.
Anyway, in other news, I bought my new camera. I feel like a badass now. It’s a Canon 40d. Not completely top of the line, but far from the bottom. It’s awesome, and it’s the first real camera I’ve ever owned.
