Today was a quazi busy day at the office. I had new student paperwork to put away, had to contact a few people interested, had to type up some documents, fold some brochures, make some appointments, change some ink. It was a typical Office Management day.
I really like my job as a secretary/office manager/admin assistant. It is fun, it's not too hard, I get to meet interesting people, I get to learn things, I get to make things, I get to have my own desk. That last part is really important!
Having a desk is like a status symbol. It means you've made it. While I agree that 'making it' has it's own meaning for others, I really like office work. Working in an office makes me feel important to the grand scheme of things....also, I can be creative with out pressure outside of work & I can separate what I like to do from what I have to do.
Going to work is fun & totally different from what I'd like to do. I like to have a job where I don't really have to think about work because I like to blog, crochet, run my shop....I like to do other things that worry about work all the time. I've worked my fair share of shitty jobs & I am very thankful for the one I have.
I like to ascribe to the view that one should be able to have a job he likes & be able to live off of that. I will continue to feel this way, I hope, for a long time. Optimism is good for the soul.
At any rate, here is what I wore today:
Shoes :: Khol's Clearance
Shirt :: JCP Clearance
Cardigan :: H&M
Necklace :: Grandmothers
Bracelets :: Italy & Claire's
Earrings :: Claire's
Jeans :: F21 Plus
Speaking of jobs, I recently tried to get back to working at Icing/Claire's & am having the hardest luck. They need me, they don't need me, They need me....who knows! I went in for an interview the other day & she said she had to hire an assistant. C'mon! I love working there, hire me! I mentioned the holidays are coming & that I'd love to be considered. We'll see how it goes......
Otherwise, I am going thrifting tonight. Hoping I can find some jewels out there. I am thinking of adding some other items to the shop when I release some in Mid September (it's approaching!!) & I am heading out to thrift to try my had at what I am thinking.
Which reminds me, I need to share somethings on my Thrift List that I've found!
