Life as a Working Girl

I can’t believe it’s been two months since I’ve started my job. I feel like I just got into it, yet I feel like I’ve been doing it forever. I really do like my job. Figuring out the best online advertising placements for my properties is fun, challenging and something I really enjoy. The pace is hectic and things come up all the time.

This job really challenges my focus. I haven’t had a job in two years where there are always things to do. Even in hotel operations there was down time with nothing to do. I’ve had to learn how to prioritize tasks and really do multiple projects at once. I need to work on completing a task, instead of jumping around. I usually have 3-10 excel documents open, multiple emails, and a few powerpoint presentations. Not to mention multiple internet browsers, outlook and other random things. I’ll be in the middle of writing one email, then get another and focus on that. I have to start finishing one task then jump to the next. Part of the time I am multitasking, but sometimes it’s just my mind wandering to another task and I jump to that.

I would say I’m slightly overwhelmed, I know I can handle the workload, that won’t be a problem. I just need to get up to speed with my campaigns. I’m still learning my newest campaigns since I’ve only been on them a week. They’re much more challenging and in-depth. I like them though because they allow for more creativity and out of the box campaigns.

Sometimes I feel like this when I’m using all these crazy acronyms asking questions about CPMs, CPCs and who knows what else. I’ve really found that really knows what I’m thinking.

Outside of working, I’m trying to maintain a social life, but to be honest, I’m very content with going to sleep at 10 or 11 pm on a Friday or Saturday night. This past weekend I did it both nights, slept for over 10 hours and felt so great every morning. Don’t worry I socialized with people on Saturday and managed to get in three workouts, one weight training, body flow (the new release is HARD), and a run. I actually did body flow and ran on Sunday. I couldn’t believe I didn’t die and wasn’t that sore on Monday.

Don’t be alarmed if I’m MIA later this week, lots of friends coming into town this weekend, including my other 1/3 slash bff Brittaney (Katie, Brittaney and I have been bff’s since freshman year of college) and I’m so excited that she will be here!! This weekend is the Final Table for the World Series of Poker where my good friend, Phil (Katie’s husband), will be playing. You may remember this post. So look for me sitting next to Katie on ESPN live on Sunday!

  1. HAHAHA Oh my gosh I LOVE all of these. I can’t believe that I’ve been working for a couple of months either. Where has the time gone?? I’ve been struggling trying to find the balance between work/social/blog life but I think I’m starting to get the hang of things 🙂
