Ever have one of those days when you know you already have too much on your plate and you are struggling with it as it is and then someone adds a few other things to the pile and you can't say no? Don't worry - I'm not being a pushover - it's a work thing. And it isn't even *extra* stuff - my normal quarterly tasks - but in this quarter it seems that everything is due within the same 3 day period. And I will be in class three days next week (Foundation in Accounting and Statistics then Introduction to Pharmaceutical Marketing). And I'm not exaggerating about the 3 day span - usually I have 2-3 weeks to knock all this stuff back.
I love my job. Who knew that someone as artsy-fartsy as I am with a degree in Applied Linguistics and a background in teaching would get such a kick out of accounting, spreadsheets gloriola, and the sociological aspects of my industry? This is something I want people in college and university to know - that just because you are inclined to study one discipline does not mean you cannot excel in another discipline altogether.
I repeat, I love my job. Just right now I wish things were spread out a bit more.
