I wished for a full time job with no weekends. And waa lah! I got a 3-11 m-f as a new grad! They offered me 4-6 weeks of orientation...only got about 2.5. FYI. Anyways, I'm not so excited about it anymore, because I don't get to see my 5 year old as much. I see him one hour before school everyday. I miss family dinners and events (like halloween). Not to mention I had no choice of off holidays, so guess who has to work Thanksgiving, xmas eve, xmas, and new year's? The new girl (me). I'm not sure how to deal with this. I don't want to jeoperdize my employment, but it feels like no one cares about anybody's personal life. Sometimes I just think, "i'll stay there a year and get experience, then find something new." I really like the job, and I'm pretty good at it. But i don't want my son to forget who I am.
