Who the hell are you?

Tomorrow is Administrative Assistant Appreciation, which is awesome because our Admin is that amazing heart and soul of the department institutional knowledge wizard that all good workplaces need.
What is not awesome is that planning her appreciation always falls to the least senior woman in the department: ME. So I am picking up her flowers and card and I had to make the lunch reservation. Because patriarchy. And like last year I expect there will be stupid jokes made about how our lovely admin would have planned it better herself. Heaven forbid the dudes in my department take care of any of this. 
Yeah. I was fucking hired for my knowledge of how the executive branch works and my ability to put together inter-generational coalitions. Not event planning.

Just ordered my dance shoes for colorguard now I should go get a glass of wine and return that phone call. This is the kind of adulting my life involves now? 14 year old me would be proud. 

One of the most intense, exhausting people I know has called me twice and I am avoiding calling her back. 

Just email me dammit! (Should be a text message that is automatically sent to anyone who tries to call me)

For All The Girls I Loved Before I Knew I Could
