    I've always loved the idea of getting into event planning. Is it hard to get into? Did you go to school for it?

    I did a double major in undergrad and one of those majors was communications. I also did an event internship at my college. Then I went to grad school for pretty unrelated stuff but I ended up working full time at my grad school doing really dry event planning. (Think Law conferences and scheduling my boss flights to places.)I got laid off in May since Yale cut all the newbies and I did a rando craigs list search for a job closer to my husband's work. I ended up with this job. I am seriously so lucky it worked out the way it did.

    1) How do you get to work?  I drive about 25 minutes.  All backroads though so it isn't terrible2) View out you office window?  No window!  But when I go to the window it is the parking lot.3) Where is your 'go to' lunch spot?  Panera, it's quick and good.  Or the Picadilly Pub.  It's right around the corner.  If it's nice out I wals to UMASS Memorial and eat lunch in their cafeteria, it;s actually pretty good.4) Co-worker you love the most and why?  I don't really love any of my coworkers.  I guess my favorite person is a girl named Bri who doesn't even work on my side of the building but I played work softball with her and she's cool.  But even though we work at the same company we never interact work-wise.5) Co-worker you would fire if you could?  My boss... she is a nice person but not a very good manager.  And all of the people who take short cuts and cheat.  Though that would leave like 4 people left in my office.6) Thing you have accomplished at work recently:  Moving my desk, lol.  Other than I am not feeling very accomplished.  I feel like I am in the middle of a hundred projects, none with an end in sight.  Sigh.Despite my negativity, I do like my job.  Maybe I just had a bad day.  :)
