boy situation aside (which actually isn't that big a deal since expectations were so low), this week is going to give me a stroke.
work has, to put a fine point on it, exploded all over me like a flaming bag of poo. i stepped into my new position officially last week and, man, is the learning curve fast and steep. our government affairs contact said to me, as she handed me her copy of the IL general assembly directory, 'don't worry. in a year, you'll be great. flashcards are useful.'
holy crap. flashcards. and - a year?!
i have to learn names, committees, titles, interest areas - for city, county, state, and federal level officials (elected and appointed).
what the hell. those 7 years of frolicking were nice. who needs friends, family and boys? not me.
i have the illinois general assemby and the cook county board to keep me warm.
(of course you know i'm secretly thrilled. i love this stuff.)
