I've obviously got plenty of free time at work. Which is not to say that I don't do my job. I do my job. Quickly and well. It's just that as any secretary can tell you, waiting for the phone to ring can be a tedious process. This is why I blog. Because of the tedium. I don't feel super productive reading a book. I feel cliched reading a magazine. And watching video at work is just taboo. So I blog and surf. Which, is a great work activity, because I'm still typing and reading, but I'm using the computer in a work condoned fashion. Also I don't go crazy thinking about what to do. I do however like the busy times at work when I have papers to file, phones to answer, projects to work on, and other various and sundry things. I like the feeling that comes with completion (though these things aren't really ever done.) I like clearing my desk and knowing that it's "finished." I'm a bit obsessive over where things go on my desk. I know it looks cluttered, but it's where it's supposed to go! I used to tell my mom this, but she never believed me. And that's why I don't live with my parent's anymore.


  1. I'd like to say I envy you but I remember those days and they were BOOOOORRRRIIINNNGGG! And you also don't live with your parents anymore because you're in Utah...and married.

  2. Thanks for following me on my blog. I hop online at my job too, here and there. Sometimes I feel bad about it. Mostly I don't. :)

  3. lol. you're like that because Dad is like that. I remember one time when one of his student workers cleaned his desk as a 'surprise' for him... he complained about it for a week or so.
