There isn't much that I feel uncomfortable writing about, so when asked what one topic I will never write about is, I have a hard time coming up with something. After much thought and many discarded ideas (my marriage, poop, family, food, etc), I finally realized the one thing I will never blog about. My job. There are a few reasons that I will not write about my job:
- The nature of my job (research) means that I am working on things that competitors would like to steal the idea for.
- If I ever express dissatisfaction with my job, there is a possibility that a coworker may read it and spread it around, thereby putting my continued employment in danger.
- I have no desire to write about my work; I write to relax and not think about work.
I think that those are three very valid reasons to not write about my job, no matter how I feel about it. Maybe if I ever have my own business or become a domestic engineer (aka stay at home mom) I will feel more free to discuss my work and satisfaction with it. Ironically, the point is moot currently as I am still on maternity leave. In conclusion, since I will not write about work, you get to read about the other things in my life . . . mostly the kid. Sorry not sorry.
