I got nothing. Nothing to blog about. I found this little note in my files and decided to post it becasue again....I got nothing.
It was bosses day and I had told my boss I didn't get her a card becasue I was not kiss-ass. Well, lo and behold one the Administrative Assistants pick-up and extra card for me to give to my new boss. Of course, my boss would know that I didn't actually have the forethought to get a card (sine I had just told her that I did not get her one) and that this was the work of a quick thinking Admin Assistant. I knew "looking bad" was in my future. So in my usual blurter-style I composed to following:
BTW: My new boss is AWESOME. I have been meaning to post about how great work has been (from a boss stand-point, co-workers can be another story).
Apparently I did get you a card for Boss' Day. (Note to self: get a card for a certain someone on Secretary’s Day. Also, find out when Secretary’s Day is.) Lest you think this a hollow, obligatory and not heart-felt gesture let me remind you about the Oatmeal this morning. That’s love, right there. (Her oatmeal exploded in the microwave that morning and I cleaned it up for her since she was rushing off to a meeting)
All kidding aside, I am very excited about the future since you have come to College Name and into my life. I find myself anxious to come to work and sometimes wanting to stay longer at night because I am working on some project where I have been trusted to challenge myself and the College to do something new, better and meaningful.
As a non-tangible gift I am enclosing the following quote. Compassion has been a theme for me this year. It’s not something that comes naturally to me and I find it hard to accept from others so these words have been a guiding force for me. I know how you love quotes.
There are times when a little compassion goes a long way. The key is discerning when you need it and when you need to give it. Those two different occasions often feel the same.
