My honest opinion on my job (after 2 years)

Hey. I don't know if I wrote about my job before or not, but I don't think I ever fully expressed my thoughts on it. As usual, I don't have any plan for this post, so let's just see where it goes...

First of all I have to give you some basic information. I've been working here since I finished college; started as a student job and then they called me back 2 months after I lost my student's rights. It's been 2 full years now and I'm still not employed like legit full-time, but I do have a contract for few more months. Please pray they make it official! It's also the company that was my dream since I started high school, not the position exactly, but pretty close if you ask me.'s a chance I'll get fed up with everything...

So, I freaking love my job. There wasn't a day when I said I was not in a mood to work. Sure, getting up before 6 a.m. is not fun, but being tired and being not willing to go to work are two different things. I honestly feel so happy working there. I love every aspect of it and I also take on extra work because it's really not a problem. I guess the "find a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life" is actually true. Sure, I've been here for only 2 years and I'm still young and there's a chance I'll get fed up with everything, but as of now, I can only imagine one better position (the one I actually went to school for, but, as I said, this is the second best thing). People often tell me I work too much and I need to push other people to do more and, yes, I sometimes get frustrated that there are some people just waiting for me to do their job too, but at the end of the day, I love that too. How weird am I?

...there are like 2 girls and 20 guys working?

Furthermore, I work with people. A lot of them. And I was always worried how that will go. You know that the more people usually means more problems and more hatred. However, most of the people I work with are still students from my own college so we're basically wired in the same way. There are like 5 people that I love working with and the rest I'm OK with. But all in all, I don't particularly mind any of them. My bosses are absolutely amazing. I could have never imagined I would have this kind of a relationship with my boss/authority. Also, have I mentioned there are like 2 girls and 20 guys working? And both my bosses and real colleagues (legit employed people or on the same contract as I am) are guys? And to be accepted as well as they accepted me? To be equal from the start... OK, to be clear, there was never a difference in respect because I was a girl, but I expected different types of conversations or maybe to be excluded from some topics or something just because it's "guys' world". But no. To be honest, I think I'm so happy because (!) there are so many guys. I'm a girl and I can clearly state more girls mean more drama (generally!, not a rule of course). 

I try really hard to do my job well, but because I love it so much. And I see they respect me. And, people let me tell you, it's the greatest feeling in the world! To know you're appreciated. Honestly, I know this post is kind of a mess, but the point is out there. Haha. I'm just so overwhelmed whenever I talk about my job, it's insane. Haha.

I think I'm gonna write more about my job because I have few more topics I want to get into and also this relationship with my bosses, but we'll see how I'll manage that.

Tell me, do you work? Are you happy with your job? Your boss or colleagues?
