I Feel Good

For once this academic year, I can state that I feel good! Although this past week was Spring Break, I worked my normal nine to five therefore I did not have much of a break. I could have taken the nights off and rested as we did not have any classes in session, but I used this time wisely for once and I am proud. I was able to conduct three out of my five surveys and begin transcribing them as well! I can state that thus far this has been the most interesting part of my thesis work. Sitting and listening to my interviewee’s responses while also relating their answers back to mine was enjoyable. From the majority of the responses that I received, it was interesting to see how almost everyone was taken back and hesitant by the questions regarding one’s manager. I am now excited to begin working on this section of my thesis and seeing what patterns arise.

This past week I also was able to sit in on a training session “You Evolving Now.” The guest speaker spoke about the importance of viewing work-life as a harmony rather than a balance as there is no such thing. This is not the first time I have heard this, therefore looking into the reasons as to why there cannot be a balance will be a key part of my thesis.

In my eyes, we are basically in April, which means time is ticking. I do not have much time left so although I made progress this week, I cannot slack. I must keep this momentum going or else I will begin to fall behind… more behind than I already am.
