And I still get to be creative with my work at Chicagoist, so that helps keep me satisfied too. I’m in more of a senior advisory role there now, and less of a day to day writer, which was a bit of an adjustment at first. But now we have have a full time team there that’s killing it so I feel our A&E coverage is in excellent hands.
I think if there’s anything that’s lacking it’s more on my end: I need to let the people around me know I appreciate them more than I do. I can be snarky and sarcastic and sometimes I forget to temper that with the forthrightness that allows people to know how much I respect and admire them. That’s something I’m working on. In fact I even took a colleague out to lunch this week, and that’s something I’ve never done, believe it or not!
So I’m a lucky dude, and I always treasure that. I think I just need to do a better job of letting the people around me know that’s how i feel about them too.
