Finding a Bliss.

It seems like most of my post are quick updates, sprinkled with a post with some substance here and there. But, in my defense, I've never had a full-time job before...outside of the house...that paid money, and not just hugs and kisses (not that I'm complaining). And while there are MANY bloggers out there that are mommies/employees/everything else and can still manage to blog on a regular basis, this is all still a little new to me.

I am still working for the school district as a secretary in the human resources department. And I am still really enjoying the work and LOVE my coworkers. They are such sweethearts. I work with 5 women that are all very considerate and thoughtful...and hilarious. I've never worked in a place where I am auditing a file one minute and the next, I have to catch my breath from laughing so hard at something my coworker said. It's fun to go to work each day. I am surrounded by awesome people.

The most surprising thing I've found, though, is that I believe that I have found something that I am really good at AND I enjoy. And I wouldn't have thought I would have this much fulfillment doing office work. No offense to all those that work in an office. But I remember watching my mom work in an office and I kinda thought, "Man, this is boring." But I like it a lot. And I have heard a few times from others at work that I am doing a good job. And that makes me feel even better.

Now, there are some things that I would like to change (a little higher pay, more permanent position, etc), but, for now, I am enjoying it and learning as much as I can. This has also led me to decide to apply for Personnel when I apply for the Air Force. So, I will leave this on a contented note, and hope that all of you find something that you really enjoy.

I'm so glad you love your job. It's nice to hear people say that. Although I had a terrible morning at work today I usually like my job. It's nice to earn some money, something besides hugs and kisses...that was so cute.
