This has been a pretty busy week. I mentioned that yesterday but I don't think I can say it enough. It's that time of the year that I can be at work for more than 10 hours a day and I STILL can't do everything. It's typical of what I do but then I have moments like today that I realize that no matter how much time I spend at work, I truly really like what I do.
I had a conversation with my friend at dinner about how sometimes people go to college to get a degree and have no idea what they want to do with their life and get a job and they never feel passionate about what they do. I feel really lucky that I was able to get the degrees that enable me to go to work and feel like I make a difference.
Not in every moment of every day. I get frustrated. I get tired. I get sad. I worry.
But I never doubt this is what I'm supposed to be doing with my life or career. And the icing on it is I work with people that have become my friends along the way. I know no one goes to work to make friends, but I have found some close friends along the way. It makes work seem less like...work.
Today was Bid Day and I encouraged our professional staff to support this by wearing their letters or a Greek event shirt. So here are three of us sporting our shirts. (This is outside of our offices)
And two wearing the sorority recruitment shirts.
Bid Day is a fun day around here...there is a lot of excitement in the air.
Every year it makes me stop and think about how lucky I am to do what I do for a living.
