So I have come to realize why it is that after putting in a 60hour work week I only have about 20 hours of work to show for it: MEETINGS.
This week I have had over 10 meetings that I had to attend, all which took up mostly all of my days. Then I come back to the office and have to turn the items discussed at the meetings into reality; this usually happens outside the 8am - 5pm window. Its so interesting how people who are in the meetings with you all week will have the audacity to ask you if you have finished the thing asked of you at a previous meeting when they clearly have been with you the whole time since and know that you have not had the opportunity to even start on the task!
this is just me venting! Though today I got to meet with the CFO and CEO of our client. Had a little bit of sweaty palms for a couple minutes but got the results my boss was looking for so go me! Its awesome to have an opportunity to get to work with such higher up people being so new to this "working world".
