Administrative Professionals Day

Every actor has many jobs to pursue his/her career and still put food on the table. I have about 5 "pay-the-bills," that's my definition of them, jobs. Almost exactly 5 months ago, November 25, 2015, I started a new "pay-the-bills" job at an office. I've never had a Monday-Friday, corporate, 8am, 5 days a week job in my life. I say that with gratitude. However, today, I have come to experience the Administrative Professionals Holiday.

I truly understand why this is a holiday. Admins and office assistants really "bust some moves" in an office. I've discovered Microsoft Office/Word/Excel/Outlook, Concur, Fed-Ed labels, Office Depot, binding and printing documents, stocking kitchens with coffee, milk, snacks, etc. and more beyond what one could ever imagine. Sometimes, I do plumbing, printer maintenance, espresso machine or water dispenser "surgery" and garbage recycling. The latter jobs were accidentally missing from  my job description, but I don't complain. I'm thankful to get paid every week, experience working with people nowhere near the entertainment world and still being able to pursue my career of acting. It's actually a huge answer to prayer and blessing. Here's a shout out to all the Admins on this day!
