I know it has been a while since my last post, but grad school is still very much kicking my ass, haha. I was working from home, which was great because I got to focus more on school. It wasn’t until I started working from home that I realized how much time out of my day goes to traveling and getting ready to travel to work as well.
Even with school, I was wishing and hoping cue Dusty Springfield for a better job or promotion because… hello? More money, but also I deserve a promotion (as we all tell ourselves). Well… I got exactly what I asked for deep sigh 😐
I THOUGHT I had an idea of management. I told myself, “it can’t be that bad; these directors are just lazy (partially true).”
Girl………. As a regular staff, I thought I had an idea of how stupid my fellow workers have the potential to be. This managerial position has shed A SH*T TON of light on the madness. Witnessing and experiencing it first hand has been an eye-opener. I feel so overwhelmed. It’s as if the work doesn’t stop. I don’t know what peace is anymore. While I know I am capable of completing the work, in addition to school, I think I may have bitten off more than I can chew. Who knows. Tomorrow will be my first full week. Maybe it won’t get easier, but maybe I will adjust better as the days go by. They say to be thankful even in the “bad times,” so I do want to make it clear that I am very thankful for this opportunity.
Anyways, stay safe. Wear a mask, not to be a “sheep,” but to make things a little less overwhelming for our healthcare workers.
