Yeah, More $$ But is It Worth it?

This job is well.... there's pluses and minuses like any job I suppose. There's good people. I love my boss. They have win.e and be.er hour every other Thursday, summer Fridays where we get to leave early on Fri (half day), and the culture is warm, supportive and inviting. The CEO loves me and I'm doing a great job so far -- all positives right?

BUT........ I have to do these freaking long as.s reports each month for every client -- they're seven pages long each. Then I have to do a client presentation for each client, reviewing the reports, answering questions and reviewing strategy. After reporting week and client meetings, there's really only two weeks of the month to actually work on client projects. Today I failed at my client presentation -- I fumbled and was obviously nervous. I am not used to giving presentations and have ptsd. Well, it basically sucked for me, and I am  now missing my former cushy work from him job where I was just editing web pages, just recently. Now that was nice and easy, but only part time and hardly enough money. 

So I am making a huge amount more in salary, which is nice too, but is it really worth it?!?

I've only been there three months or so. I am already thinking maybe I will move on after a year..... another downside? I have yet to learn anything new! 

I just do not know. Today was brutal, AND I've had no sleep. I am going to Florida this weekend then to NY so I will be rejuvenated (I hope) from the trips! 

That's all for now.

 I think its worth it.You seem to enjoy it so I don't know whats wrong here but in my opinion more money equals more fun lol

I enjoy many aspects of it... I just happened to finish a particularly grueling two weeks of work, so I was coming off of that when I wrote this blog post. The problem is my field is very difficult. 😕 The problem may be my role itself and not the company.

Some days I am far more stressed than others. It depends. Money doesn't mean happiness necessarily, but it does mean freedom!!! Thanks on my profile pic... I forget where I found it, lol.
