Adulting 101

Even before I started my job yesterday, on Tuesday I was promoted to full time (!) so that’s exciting. Yesterday was my first official day at my “big girl” job, as my mom calls it. For those who don’t know, it’s at the marketing group where I interned last summer. It’s a super small company, but I love everyone there and they’re super nice. Which helps when I have a million questions.

Since I went from part time to full time, my client list jumped from 10 to 38. It’s a little intimidating, but it’ll definitely keep me busy. I have my own cubicle and still trying to decide how I want to decorate it. I brought in a few desk items yesterday, like pencil holders and stuff, but nothing yet for the walls. I’ve been looking stuff up on Pinterest and have a few ideas in mind. When I’m finally done decorating, I’ll definitely post some pictures!

I had today off because it was part of the original plan when I was part time, but I officially start full time on Monday. Today was my last day of weekday freedom, but I didn’t do anything special. Tomorrow I’m going to sit down with two of the other account managers and figure out what needs to be done for the clients and what I can have the interns work on for me. It’ll be weird giving them work to do since I was in their shoes just last summer.

Two girls I work with at the ice cream shop are taking me out for drinks tomorrow night for my full time promotion, so that’ll be interesting. We’re going to a club in Hartford, so yeah, definitely interesting. I haven’t been running in like two months, and should probably start, but half the time I consider work at the ice cream shop my exercise when I’m on my feet for five hours. But the good news is that my room is actually clean now and all of the bins are gone and I’m unpacked.

I hope to have more stories next week when I go full time and try to pretend like I can be an adult.

How is everyone’s start to summer going?


  1. Working at small business is so much nicer, imo. The pay might not be as good or the benefits, but the sense of community at a small business makes it great. Congratulations on getting hired full time! Exciting stuff! 🙂
