And sometimes, we have to remember that some people are just assholes :/ We’re better than them anyway…
I miss my best friends more than anything. I’m a workaholic because I love the work that I do so, so much, but as much as I enjoy the relationships I’ve developed in this company, I still miss the friendships that I’ve built over the years. It’s great seeing that the ones I love are doing well and that they’re happy, but it’s been a bit dull lately living on my own. It’s always so quiet here unless the interns are here for work. I miss having a roommate, and I miss having time to spend with the people who mean a lot to me or with the people that I just want to get to know more. It’s all been about either myself or the interns lately. Scheduling is always an issue. I finish working so late in the day that the only free time that I usually have is between classes when no one else is available or between 9pm-6am when no one really wants to hang out anymore unless they’re planning on partying, which I haven’t even really had the motivation to do because I just want to sit down with some good friends and have some real, genuine conversations. We all don’t make time for each other anymore and we need to. I would be willing to lose sleep to talk to someone who is important to me on the phone. Or I would be willing to take a few minutes out of my day to even say hi just for a few minutes, but it doesn’t seem like that’s the case for everyone. Looking back to when I first moved in and was all alone, it was great because I needed that peace and quiet away from the home that was never really home. Lately, I feel like the silence in my home has been making me lose my mind lol. It would just be nice to get back to meeting people and talking to people just to talk and just to get to know each other or just to catch up. It really is great to know that the ones you love are doing well. I’m doing well myself. Just wish that we all could make more time for each other.
"I’ve only been with the company for 2.5 yrs, but it feels like 10!"
Nothing but numbers…
Pass the Torch - Pt. 4
Such an amazing group of interns. I am so glad that I took the opportunity to become an RC this year because I don’t know what I would be doing with my life if I hadn’t. It’s definitely been a struggle with my first group of interns, but I’m learning and improving, and I love it, and to know that what I’m doing is actually making an impact is such a great feeling. Can’t wait to go to Cancun with them all! Really need to step my game up from here on out because there’s no way I’m going to let myself finish my RC year upset with the results that I got. No way.
One of my interns asked me,
"Is being an RC stressful?"
You know, I’ve never actually asked myself that question haha. I learned so much during my intern year that taught me how to deal with stress, that taught me how to handle myself when things got and get tough, and much, much more. The interns on my team call me when they lose motivation, and it’s my responsibility to be their backbone. There’s no room for stress or laziness because they’re counting on me. My response was that one reason why I love my job is because I love helping people, and I honestly hope that I can bring success to these guys and gals. There is so much room for improvement on my part as an RC. I don’t find myself looking for reasons to not be happy about what I do because this is what I want and chose to do. Being an RC is awesome actually. I definitely miss being an intern because I loved having my own clients and it was definitely less time consuming lol, but I really enjoy watching the interns I work with grow on a weekly basis. It is so rewarding. So nope, being an RC is not stressful. I’ve learned to prioritize my time and energy into the things I want so that it is not stressful. Definitely wish I was doing better with my team to be honest, but we’re all working hard and I will do what it takes to get my team where I want them to be. No exceptions. It’s do or die.
