sometimes working is a drag.
not my jobs, specifically.
but just working in general.
like... "what do you mean i have to wake up at 6:20 a.m. and get all dressed up in nice professional clothes and wear heels and commute 40 minutes to work and be customer friendly and have manners all day and do whatever i'm asked to with a smile for 8 hours straight and then drive home in rush-hour traffic with all of the other frantic employees who just want to go home and won't share the road with me and then rush off to a two-hour religion class and be fully attentive and take notes so i don't fail and then drive home to fall asleep out of exhaustion only to wake up the next morning and repeat the whole stressful pattern all over again?"
when it could be like... "i slept in this morning until 9:30, went for a beautiful jog up in a park and stopped at the local farmers market to pick up some produce and drop lunch off to my sweet husband at work and gave him a big juicy kiss, then i went home and made some fresh rolls for our pot roast dinner while the laundry was going and by the time my husband got home i had dinner on the table and all of the chores done. we had the whole evening to eat chocolate covered strawberries and snuggle up on the couch to watch our favorite tv shows or a good movie."
... but, the bills must be paid. and in all honesty it could be worse.
it could be a lot worse.
even though i don't have the luxury of staying home all day doing whatever i want, i am so lucky and blessed to work with the most amazing people and be a part of the most amazing university. i love BYU and i am having fun getting to know all of my coworkers. (especially lauren harris who is not pictured below because we were on opposite lunch shifts). we keep the work days exciting by having themed lunch days or other festivities.
last week's excitement was "crepe carnival"
