How I Work

While making breakfast this morning, I noticed a spider suspended from the ceiling, dangling gently on its string, doing its spider acrobatics. And because I am a big girl I trapped it with some tupperware and asked my boyfriend to solve the problem (he was asleep in bed – I am an adult).

We are doing this series at work inspired by the How I Work tag at lifehacker.com. Basically, everyone in my department is going to have an hour to talk about how they do work and also function as a person, what they do to keep motivated, any tricks of the trade, and other personality/work related quirks. Our big boss went today (the head of the publications department) went first. It was such a nice presentation. I am very big on listening. Lectures are my jam, hence why I liked college so much. I felt like a learned a lot about the people I work for. He cares so much about what he does; it was actually really inspiring. His enthusiasm is contagious. It makes me want to work even harder.

I like my work very, very much, but I feel like I could be doing even more. I think I could handle extra responsibility. When I was in college I lived in a constant state of anxiety. That sort of deadline-focused stress and pressure isn’t constantly on me anymore. I feel like a masochist, but I kind of miss it. I like to be running around, juggling many tasks at once. It helps keep me on my toes. But maybe that will come with time. If I’m lucky?

I have been playing Bioshock: Infinite all evening. I am told I have about three hours left of the game. I’ll probably finish it tomorrow.

I made french toast for dinner. I followed a fairly involved Martha Stewart recipe and I didn’t use all the right ingredients. It came out a little soggy. The boys ate it anyway. All’s well that ends well, I suppose!

Until next time. xx
