I am literally so excited for this round of Ten on Tuesday questions. They come at the perfect time for me! Hosted by the awesome Chelsea, as always.
1. What do you do for a living?
I work in the media department of an advertising agency. I’m an assistant right now, learning the ropes. We promote giveaways for charities.
2. What’s your favorite thing about your job?
I started my job on Wednesday so I’m brand-spankin’-new and in the honeymoon phase right now. I love my desk. I love my co-workers. I love my bosses. I love my new schedule. I love the work. I love the spreadsheets. I love the organizing. I love going the bathroom whenever I want. I love wearing cute outfits to work. I love the atmosphere and environment. Oh! I just love this job!
3. What’s your least favorite thing about your job?
The newness. There is so much I want to do already but I have so much to learn before I do that. The good news is that they don’t expect you to jump in on your first day and know how to do everything. They know it’s a process and my boss has been very good at training me and making sure I’m kept in the loop. I cannot wait for the day when everything becomes common knowledge, but I’m patient to wait and be trained the right way first.
4. If you weren’t a _____, what would you be?
I would probably still be working at the daycare. I’m shuddering right now.
5. What is something you would love to get paid for that you think no one would ever pay you for?
Sleeping. I wish I could get paid to get 10 hours of sleep a night. How awesome would that be?
6. If you could have any job for exactly one day, what would it be?
I think everyone needs to do a job in retail or customer service for one day. I worked at a movie theater one summer and it’s amazing how customers act. I genuinely loved serving our customers but I think many consumers don’t understand what it’s like for the workers. They’re just rude and usually, it’s not the fault of the staff.
I would also love to be Kelly Ripa for one day. But on a day when she’s co-hosting with Anderson Cooper. Regis gets on my nerves.
7. If you had to do manual labor, what would you do?
Working at a daycare is manual labor, right? Running after kids, changing diapers, cleaning boo-boos, getting kicked/hit/screamed at. Sounds like it to me! 😉
8. What is something you were forced to learn in high school that was supposed to be super important, but you never actually use?
Geometry? I don’t know if it was ever labeled as super important but honestly, I think it’s all important in some aspect. You need English and grammar skills. You need to know your history because you just look like ignorant if you don’t. You need to know math, because many jobs use it and it gives you a lot of good problem-solving skills. Et cetera, et cetera. It’s all important in a way.
9. Who was your favorite boss? Why?
I guess I can’t choose my current one, since she’s only been my boss for four days. Hehe. I have to say that my former one, at the daycare, was pretty spectacular. She was tough on me, but also so supportive of everything I was going through, especially my schooling.
10. Where would you rather work: Dunder Mifflin Paper Company (The Office), Wernham Hogg Paper Company (The Office – UK), or Initech (Office Space)?
I’ve never seen the UK version of The Office or Office Space (don’t shoot!). But I have seen many, many episodes of The Office and I would love to work for them. But only when Pam was the secretary and Michael was the boss. The new secretary (still don’t know her name) annoys me and an office without Michael Scott? How does that even work?
