...except me, of course.
Yes, I know it's silly for me to expect it of myself, and in my head, I don't.
In my gut there's a different story.
But today one of the mentors told me that, in those exact words, and it was something of an epiphany.
Because that situational introversion I told you about a week or so ago? It still holds.
How do you natural introverts do it? I mean, the Friendly part of the Smart, Friendly, Fast credo of Advanced Tech Support at AT&T is the (usually) easy part for me. It takes no energy whatsoever, and I can in fact gain energy from it.
Usually being the key word, because today notsomuch.
I'm generally the other two as well (Smart and Fast can be taught), but I didn't really expect those to work well today.
The Friendly I expected.
And I did do it.
But it was freaking exhausting.
I have tomorrow off though, and then I work Thursday, and then I have Friday and Saturday off.
Thanks for the epiphany, J. And thanks for the oven cleaning help, Mom.
Because tomorrow I have a friend coming over, and now I don't have to do a lot, because the oven is clean (and safe) and the Oh-My-God-I'll-Never-Be-Able-To-Deal-Again ordeal is over and done with. Thank Google.
It'll take time, but I'm pretty sure I got this.
