Today I found out I'm getting an assistant.
The "thing" about it is I used to have this job that the new-girl is taking.
24 hours a week.
Living the dream.
But, like my BFF who is soon to rule the world, I found myself in my now current job without the initative to actually have the position I do. Actually I never planned on working where I do more than a year...but 18 years later I find that I believe in it and love what I do. And now I picture my position as a line or triangle, where I'm the middle point...one side does it's job, now the other side will do theirs and I'm stuck in the middle.
And let me tell you--I don't like being in the middle.
It's messy in the middle. Generally.
I like having a purpose that is outside of the middle.
That's kinda what sides are..
And then what--Middle.
If you think of politics, which I also don't like--I don't consider myself in the middle either--though I don't consider myself extreme either.
I hope this new co-worker/assistant can be ok with me crossing over to her side, like my other co-worker does.
Once upon a time, it wasn't so complicated--and now I see how managerial stuff is messy. And really--it doesn't have to be.
Guess I'll just be re-inventing whatever the middle may be and use the sides as part as the whole...
