One of the perks of being in management, is picking up the pieces when things fall apart.
With a shift in staff the last few weeks, our team has become very short-staffed. The result: me working nearly 40 hours a week to help out. Balancing being a full-time student with working full-time management hours while still tying to have an existing social life has been a challenge. Let’s just say life as I know it the last few weeks has been on a strict schedule with very little sleep.
Even though I’m working crazy hours and finals are coming up, I’ve felt less stress than I have felt in the last five months. It’s crazy how much impact a positive working environment can have on the rest of your life.
Everything is finally falling into place perfectly. All we really needed was a little glue to hold us together. (OK, I’m done being sappy)
