TGIT: I Can Has Sleep Now?

Thank goodness it’s Thursday! It’s hard to believe that it’s already nearing the end of January (where does the time go?). As Monday nears, I’m thinking a lot about what I want my goals for February to be. I’m happy that I’ve gotten in the habit this month of using my to-do list more productively than I have been in a while, but I definitely didn’t achieve my original goal of scheduling all my time.

It’s time for my favorite part of the work week… the flight home! Okay, half-kidding about that. I’m actually really loving my job more and more now that I’m moving into a managerial role – I’m totally a people-person, and I love making task lists and organizing things, so it suits me really well.
