In my assistantship, I have been tasked with a few more responsibilities. A staff took another position and is no longer in our department. The responsibilities of the position have been divided up. As a result, I have one more additional student organization to advise and that is AB (Activities Board) Publicity. Also, I am responsible for taking on more of the planning when it comes to the awards ceremony, and I am going to slate activities for senior week. Andrew (my supervisor) is still going be there for me to answer questions, but I am to try to take on as much as I can independently. I found most of this out on Monday, and then I talked about it with Andrew during our one-on-one.
At first, I was apprehensive about the additional responsibilities especially being more independent. I am afraid to not do well, and not do a good job. I did feel better after talking about it during the one-on-one meeting with Andrew. It has been a busy week.
I did not have class this evening, so I went to the gym and got a really good work out. I have been doing the elliptical lately. I did 1 hour on the elliptical and then did some weights. I don’t get a chance to work out as much, and I know there are people out there who think that an hour on the elliptical is too much, but it feels so good, and I actually feel like I get a great work out in, because of it. More so than when I work out on the treadmill.
After the gym, I went home and hung out until Drew came home from class. When he came home, we talked about work, and etc. It was so nice just go to the gym, and be able to clear my head. Talking with Drew helped as well.
