There are several reasons why I really like my new workplace:
As I’ve already mentioned, it’s a twenty minute walk from my house. A twenty minute sing-along walk.
The work I do is incredibly varied, challenging, and draws on my research and writing skills. Moreover, the work actually feels rather important and worthwhile, as our organisation’s role centres on advocating for people who, for various reasons, face distinct disadvantages and marginalisation in Australia.
We have a mini-dishwasher in the staff kitchen, and I have a large office all to myself.
My work colleagues, boss, and I laugh a lot together. This is important to me.
So is the fact that we all love food.
And Jenni, who is not only in the office next to mine but attended college with me years ago, has been known to bake delicious, delicious, ridiculously moist and dairy-free-just-for-me Lumberjack Cake.
Read it and weep, friends.
(Rest assured I don’t leave all the baking responsibilities in Jenni’s [capable] hands. The other week, I took in some Caramel Walnut Slice. Reciprocity huzzah!)
