My Work

I work in the computer industry, as it seems a pretty popular industry these days. Currently, I’m working as a Game Master (GM) for a company that solely focuses on MMORPG’s.

I’m one of the only girls in my department. Well, I’m one of two. I really don’t mind, but sometimes it does get in the way. There are girls in other departments and of course they have little “clicks” and certain people have become quite good friends… Great for them, but I feel a bit left out.

I’m just not “girly” material. I get uncomfortable, I don’t know what to say and when I do, I usually end up over analyzing my comments later on and feeling embarassed. Meh, deal with it right?

I really do love my job, aside from the occasional annoyances that it presents. It’s so laid back and relaxed that you get used to everything being that way. I can speak my mind, I’m friends with most of my leads and managers, and most of the people here are very open minded. The only problem is I’ve gotten used to these little luxuries that normal corporate life does not offer.

Still, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Nor, do I wish to work anywhere else. I hope to stay here for a very long time, with my friends and family. Amazing that I consider them such, but even more amazing that we have companies out there that provide such an atmosphere.

When I first got in to this industry it was complete culture shock. I didn’t know what to do. That was back in 99 and I would have to say the company I worked for then was even more lenient that this one now. People walking around in pajamas and no shoes, inflatable toys hanging from the ceiling, pets running around work, things done in black lights and crazy awesome murals everywhere. A game room with everything a gamer could want, even a margarita machine and a keggerator. Oh, those were the days.

That experience gave me a different idea for companies and their enviroments. Why can’t all work places have this environment? The complete “have fun, as long as you work too!” mentality that I so desire.

Oh, and I love playing games. I suppose, when it boils down to it, that’s why I’m here. Bring it on!
