it's not you...

Today was, shall we say, not great. Lots of stuff I don't particularly feel like discussing at length, not yet anyway. Job related unpleasantness, really nothing horrible just terrible disappointment and that "will I ever amount to anything" nagging feeling.

Although I rarely complain about my race or gender being any sort of impediment to my career, I really do think that the typical Asian mentality/work ethic has kept me from being really aggressive about the things I want and feel I deserve. Like most Asians I labor under the theory that as long as I am good at my job and work hard that I will be recognized for it and rewarded accordingly. Unfortunately that is not always the case is it? The squeaky wheel gets the grease, as they say.

Which is not to say I haven't recognized or rewarded by my company, I have, I've been promoted, I've gotten raises, I've been given a lot without asking for it. But I'm not on the path I want to be on and I'm starting to question if I'm being strung along like when a guy is dating a nice girl, but he just doesn't want to marry her.
