For the past year at least. My manager started off by asking “how do you think you did this past year?” I didn’t know how to answer, so I broke eye contact to search the small conference for an answer. I mumbled a few “ums” then responded with “well I wasn’t fired, so that’s good.” He laughed.

My review was pretty good though, I did above average, which I will count as a win. I’m also eligible for a raise/promotion, hooray! Now to fill out the proper forms for that raise...
