I'm fairly certain that yesterday was my first sick day at this job. A little more than a year on the job and just one sick day taken. Pretty good record, I'd say. I don't really get sick very often at all, although there are certainly days where I could have stayed home if I didn't care so much about my job.
I got my first paycheck that reflects my raise. One thing I hadn't thought about was that my 401k contribution went up, since it's a percentage of my income instead of a fixed dollar amount.
