On This Day 2/6/84

I started my first real (as opposed to fake) job. I’ve had a dozen or so different positions. I wanted to quit at first and almost did. Something clicked around year three and I never looked back.

So many memories. A few rough times but predominantly good ones with cases of greatness sprinkled. I wish my daddy was still alive. Out of everyone I know he’d be the most proud of my stick-to-it-ness. Yep I’m making up words now.

Here’s to 10 more years just as fulfilling as the first 36. I found this old Polaroid from my five year celebration. The briefcase πŸ’Ό on my lap (top half slightly showing) was the gift I picked. The handle broke the next day. Lol πŸ˜†

I think we look the same. Not a day over 24. Good times πŸŽ‰

  1. Wow – I thought I was an old-timer staying from 1988 to 2019. Did you start working when you were 12?

    I have at least one old brief case. It’s hard to imagine how we needed all that organization in the luggage we carried to and from work.

    1. Yes! I started at 12 πŸ˜‚.
      Our briefcases have become backpacks where we carry our lives around. No more permanent desks. I’m a floater Dan! Have laptop, will travel. Yay to working from anywhere !! Seriously too, it’s freeing. Plus I’m building muscles πŸ’ͺ🏻 and getting forced exercise πŸ˜‚

      1. I switched to a backpack before they were cool for business folk. Carrying a bag of any sort aggravates the issues I have with my shoulder. I got picked on for years before they became more popular. I always had a permanent location, except when I traveled about 80% of the year. Which, btw, was what I was doing in February of `1984.

      2. Backpacks are just better. The weight is distributed evenly. I must admit I sort of miss business travel. Of course I knew travelled 80% of the time.
