PSH. If that's wrong I don't wanna be right.

It has been a stressful week and I've spent so long on conference calls, e-mailed back and forth a billion times, had angry conversations at Photoshop, my to-do list tripled in size...
But while on the phone today with one of the business owners, he told me they have been so pleased with everything I've done, my work ethic, and are so happy to have me on board.

Nobody has EVER said anything like that to me in my entire working life. It was shocking enough when they told me before I was hired "We're so excited to have you coming on board." And now even after the fact, they've got me on a contract, - they STILL say they're happy to have me working with them. Are you kidding me?!

I came home completely exhausted (and had to leave almost immediately to meet with my trainer) but I got out of the car, paused, then jumped up and punched the air and yelled "I LOVE MY JOB!" for anybody who cared to hear it.

I almost feel as fulfilled as I do when I train dogs. Almost. And that's pretty dang fulfilled.

It's pretty amazing, isn't it? I feel that way working at the zoo, too. At the clinic I'm never thanked, never told I'm doing a good job, nothing. At the zoo, I am thanked - and thanked sincerely - almost every day, and told "I'm glad you're here" often. It's such a wonderful feeling

Isn't it an amazing feeling to be appreciated? At the preschool I am the assistant but the teacher treats me like another teacher than she can't be without and our boss is incredible. Ahe acts like everything we do is the best thing she has ever seen. She is genuine, caring and just an amazing lady. She is always leaving us goodies with our paychecks too like candy bars and gift certificates. it is amazing to feel appreciated isn't it?

I was so super taken aback the first time I was thanked or made to feel appreciated at work. It was like - what? Are you for real? This actually happens? You're not just telling me I made a mistake?

It's kind of amazing that something so simple can really make you feel.... well, amazing.

MY NEW CAMERA IS IN GREENSBORO!!! (Ahem...) It's so, so close, yet so far! I really hope it ends up coming today, even though the ETA is Monday. Not that it would do any good, considering my lenses won't be here until Tuesday or Wednesday. Boo! I don't care! I finally ordered my new camera!!
