Not a bad thing, just an observation.
I celebrated my one-year anniversary at my job. There was no actual celebration, but I'm into anniversaries so I did take note of the date. I reviewed my performance evaluation with my manager and it seems that he thinks more of me than I think of myself. Hmph. Trust me, I don't have esteem issues but I think the fact that he's only worked here for two and a half months may have something to do with it.
