This summer I have my first taste of a “big girl job.” To me, that means dipping my toes in what it’s like to work in an office setting from 8 to 5 (usually 4:40). I just past the one month mark at my summer job and, because of our wildly, fast-paced environment, I have learned quite a lot (you know me… always trying to learn something). It hasn’t always been perfect and bad days have happened, but the eternal optimistic in me has me looking at the bigger picture. Here are some of the things I’ve learned about working a full-time, office job.
I am insanely clumsy. Especially at times when it’s in my best interest not to be – like when handling a hot pan. I blame my subconscious for thinking I’m invincible when really I need to pay more attention to how close my hand is getting to the top of the inside of the toaster oven (by the way, it gets really hot). Around this time last year, I burned my right hand pretty badly from the toaster oven incident and did a lot research trying to figure out how to get the burning feeling to go away. Lucky for you, I have condensed my research and the tips I’ve learned from burning myself (L-O-L) to best alleviate pain and swelling and encourage healing.
While my semester may not be entirely over quite yet (finals are still ahead), it’s safe to say that this semester has taken me for quite the ride. Instead of recapping only April, I decided to switch things up and recap this entire semester and my blogging journey so far. I’d like to preface this post by saying that, in contrast to monthly recaps, this post is going to be much more freely written and chatty, which I hope is a style you enjoy reading. Without further ado, here we go!
Holy moly, can you believe April is already knocking on our front doors? I find it truly baffling that we’re already on our fourth month of 2016 and there are only six weeks left in the semester. Of course I know that time doesn’t stop so it’s logical that April 1 is on Friday. The time has gone by so quickly that I am both intimidated and excited by the months to come. Here are the things I learned during March.
