If you like your job and only struggle with the documentation part of it don't worry. 18 months would tell me you are a second year and are probably expecting much from yourself. Give it sometime. The terminologies and the bullshitting and talking about nothing of relevance in 14 pager memos will soon turn into second nature.

Was told I was one of a few final candidates for a role, and that they were going to be ready to make a “very hard decision” by the end of last week. Have not heard anything.
