Ahhhh, alas, the fresh smell of interns. Little creatures in their suits, carrying their tiny portfolios…and of course the bebelubes with their Wall Street journals; running over their 30 second elevator blurb for in their heads. Poor things…poor, poor things. One thing is for sure, I do not want to be in their shoes. Wide eyed kids, filled with excitement but so much anxiety – nervous wrecks; clueless that their souls will soon be crushed by the monotony of daily tasks. Hey, give me a break, 2 years in this dump gives me the right to take my stance on such fragile beings. Anyhow, that is beside the point; que pasa? What is really really good with you all? I think I had a pretty well rounded weekend, how about you? I most confess Friday I not my fave day of the week. Why? Simple; Friday tells me that I have managed to conquer one week at work BUT I will soon be haunted by another. Just think about it for a second. The weekends always go by really fast anyways, so why be in a hurry to end one work week only to start the madness over again?
This morning on my way to work, I motioned to my bag for my ID, then I hesitated and said to myself “why are you in a hurry? Monday is not going anywhere love”. That felt like a slap to my chest cavity. I walked on and took solace in the fact that yesterday ended and so today must end…one way or another. “Is it really that bad?” some might ask. Well not always, but there are times that I do feel like “crap, why the hell am I here”. Other days its like, “hmm, not bad” but never “I love it, give me more!” This leaves me to wonder if I would be any different doing what I absolutely love to do…which only leaves me with another question; what is it that I absolutely love to do? Honestly, can a job really suck this bad, or do other factors like bosses, colleagues or environment (or me) make the experience what it is. How many of you love your jobs? I want to know that I am not being absolutely ridiculous. Tell me if you love your job and how you knew it…what makes it tick for you???? HELP!
