Office Wear Conundrum
I'd never filled out a personality quiz for a job before. Is that standard procedure these days?
My second worry? That being a full-time student with a part-time job would ruin the rest of this experience, not to mention my relationship. Oh, it would be fine at first, but you probably know what it's like when deadlines and finals come around.
When I was seventeen my mother told me to apply at the bank. I realized that days in pumps and pinstriped pants would kill me.
Yesterday I visited my farm. I let the calves suck my fingers and showed my boyfriend around our tri-sided parlour. I was a different person back then. But, more than that... I think... was that I was living one part of me. I can't do everything.
I'm not sure how being a staff-writer and editorial contributor will fit me, but I'm excited to find out. Maybe one day I'll visit to show my kids around, and marvel that I was once this person. Meanwhile, the challenge will be enough to keep me around, for the first time in a while. I'll be pretending I know what I'm doing and that I'm quite used to this person.
And if you have any insight, I'm still open to ideas for what 25 year old, part time tomboys should be wearing to the office.
