When you work in IT, you can wear pajamas to work and you can decorate your workspace with cardboard pirates, aquariums, jungle foliage, to name a few themes I've seen. I tend to decorate mine with a picture of my daughter from middle school and a calendar. These IT folks are a different breed than the accountants I worked with up until I joined the software implementation project 4 years ago.
The project phase is officially over and the team has dwindled down. I decided am not going back to an accounting position. I am staying in IT. I find it more creative and flexible and I have been able to work my way into a job that will not require me to manage lots of people and stress about lots of problems. Solving puzzles? Fun. That's more of what I do now.
So, I don't need the dressier clothes, I get to pick what I want to wear. I want to be comfortable.
Happy Sewing, All!
