It’s one of those days. You know the ones when you feel like you are moving in slow motion. Staring at the clock wishing that second hand could move just a little bit faster!
I should preface this post by saying I love my job. Well, maybe love is a little bit extreme. I love my part time job as a trainer; the full time one pays the bills. Everyone I work with is very nice, I have a beautiful view overlooking the ocean, and the company offers amazing benefits, but the job itself is a bit boring!
I went to school for 4 years and majored in Biochemistry. I spent 6 years working in the pharmaceutical industry as an analytical chemist and microbiologist. Now, I answer phones, get the mail, and order catering for events. Granted my position is within a financial firm so I am learning a great deal about the stock market and portfolio building, while they are paying for me to take the series 65. I realize I am very fortunate to have a job; one that pays well, where I like the people, and encourages me to further my education. But for the most part my job is a little BORING!
I use the majority of my down time (about 6 hours a day) to study for the class or write a blog entries. However on days like today when the office is slow and I don’t feel like studying it feels like 5 o’clock Is. Never. Going. To. Get. Here!
2:03pm— • I have checked CNN.com 14 times already today. I am fully up to date on the world’s news and secretly hope a fire will break loose somewhere creating a new headline to follow
2:38pm- • I think I’ll make a cup of coffee, surly that will take AT LEAST a half hour
2:41pm— • Nope, only took me 3 minutes
3:15pm— • Decided to study a little bit for my class…learned that a unit investment trust (UIT) is an unmanaged investment company under a trust indenture. They do not have a board of directors or employee advisers and do not actively manage their own portfolios. I think that’s good enough for today
3:26pm- • Checked facebook on my phone. Apparently everyone must be having a boring day as there are no interesting status updates
3:34pm— • A minute is a long time. Like a really long time
3:50pm— • How is that even possible, surly it must be 5’oclock by now!
