It’s been pretty quiet at work these past few months. Looks like that’s about to change though, with some new projects happening and me being assigned a couple of new tasks. They aren’t strictly within my area, so to speak – it’s a bit of a crossover between departments. At first I just thought it was a bit of a pain, but on second thoughts, the more I take on, the more it shows I’m being entrusted with more important things, and I’m going to take them seriously.
One of my coworkers is going on maternity leave this week and I don’t know if she’s going to be replaced…they may just reshuffle her workload and redistribute it. I’d be glad to take on a few of her responsibilities, but I just wouldn’t have the time to do it all! I’ll be working three half days a week next semester, but they really need at least one of us there the rest of the week too. I was considering putting BF’s name forward, IF they ask any of us if we can recommend anyone who might be interested, but I don’t know how well that would go down. We would most likely be working opposite days, but company policy might still frown upon something like that.
On the upside, I will be working a full week on the week starting 29 June to ease the shock of losing her! The money (MUCH needed) will go towards our water bill, and getting the CV boots done on the car. Then the two weeks after that, I’ll also be at work full time – but as an intern. Fingers crossed that goes well!
