Shortly after dismounting my bike in October, I acquired my first ever serious, professional, benefits included and everything job. Although I will never be ungrateful for being employed, and although I feel that this job is for a good cause (I work for a solar company), this transition has been challenging to say the least. A computer screen demands all of my attention for tasks that are mentally rigorous, complex, and tediously detail oriented. And a restless spirit simply is not built to sit and scrutinize a screen all day.
But a job is a job and for now it is a means to an end. And this collaboration of post-its, white out, and candy wrappers will keep my spirits up for the time being.
I’m quite proud of it. My boss seemed to like it, too, although I’ve noticed he’s been keeping a closer eye on me lately.
