You work and you work and you work... but when it finally happens? When you finally get there?
It's all worth it.
Whatever it took to get the top.
Can you I tell you about my week?
I've been working for bioStrategies the last few days. It is eleven dollars an hour and all of my co-workers are wonderful. We even had an office birthday to celebrate yesterday in the conference room (and no one else at work had watched The Office last week... it was four berry birthday cobbler and organic vanilla ice cream) and another to look forward to tomorrow (again, Jim's idea last episode was pretty much the worst idea ever - I am living proof).
Which means I'm pretty much this guy. Before the promotion, of course.
But what exactly do I do for a company where "commercialization strategies for biotech, pharmaceutical, and medical devices companies" are their specialty?
I have my own office.
I sit at a desk.
I power up my laptop.
I get a cup of coffee from the lounge (BREAKFAST BLEND).
I open up my spreadsheet of doctor names.
I enter their names into the doctor search at Vimo.
I enter their phone and fax numbers back into the spreadsheet.
And that is my day. I did that for seven hours on Tuesday! And another five and a half yesterday.
Tedious, for sure. Mind-numbing at times? Probably. Still great temp work? Definitely.
Do I understand more of the 8-5 day and it's correlation to how much television I want to watch when I get home. ABSOLUTELY!
Last night I spent the evening in the company of Pushing Daisies, Private Practice (so lame, I don't care), and Dirty Sexy Money (ha ha ha). And then I went to bed!
But tonight... tonight there will be treasures:
MJ showed this to me months ago... and now Menomena is playing five blocks from my apartment. Perfect!
And how am I getting into said show? Well, we'll leave that up to some great friends from across the city. Maybe you've seen them play with us? Sybris is opening up the show (they just recorded their new cd! it must be in the air, right? us, them, colour revolt, and javelins - all busy bees!) and they are fantastic.
And now I am off to work!
Have beautiful days, all of you.
