LOVE: Corner cubicle (HUGE!) with two tall windows!  (Can I also add no micro-managing?) hehe

HATE: So quiet, compared to my recent job that I switched from, these cubes are super high and really separate everyone and everyone really keeps to themselves.  I mean it’s great when I just want to focus on something…and my former job I was cube neighbors with a LOUD co-worker…I mean obnoxiously loud with no sense of phone voice or when to just stop.. so I guess I just went from one extreme to the next lol.

  • Wedding: July 2012

Love: Having my own office and being able to listen to my own music all day

Hate: Not having a window and my coworker…I am putting up a paper window with a fish tank mural in the background so people quite coming into my office and saying, “You need a window.” Unfortunately there isn’t a fix for my coworker other than him to realize he’s a power monger and needs to treat me as an equal. Luckily I don’t deal with him daily.

Love: Teaching what I’m passionate about (high school English teacher), working with hilarious teenagers who can be so awesomely compassionate and open-minded, when students get into our lessons/activities and actually learn something! *Oh…and right now, summer break!

Hate: The HUGE gap between the classroom and the policy makers. Here I am trying to differentiate my curriculum to reach as many students and help them learn in creative and interesting ways and I have to give them ridiculous standardized tests that in no way measure their true learning and progress.

Love: the location, my co-workers (most of them), our facilities, and the pay is pretty good

Hate: how much my job is dependent on other people doing theirs, and how much I subsequently have to chase people.

Love: Awesome coworkers and super flexible work environment. Basically making up my own job. Super supportive boss. Lots of cooperation. 7 minute commute.

Hate: People not taking things as seriously as needed or doing them in a timely manner, people whining about being held accountable for doing the stuff they were always responsible for. People who microwave fish.

Love: A door with a lock, I don’t work weekends, and I get off at 4: 30pm

Hate: People with keys to my door, incessant emails, inability to call anyone outside the company roster, and making small talk with fellow employees.
