The Office

Hey beautiful.  As some of you may know today was my first day at HarperCollins and (O...M...G) I love it already.  I get a humongous discount on books (everyone's getting books for the holidays lol) and guess what?  I HAVE MY OWN FRIKKING OFFICE.  It doesn't have a door (lol) but it has a huge desk, a floor to ceiling bookshelf in the corner, my own computer, shelves above my desk and a huge cork-board.  I love everything about the job.  Even though I've only been filing, organizing and getting a feel for the job, I know I'm going to love the rest of my time with HarperCollins.

Plus my supervisor is an executive editor of HarperCollins.  She gave me some books (of my favorite flavor) to have.  I started reading one, on the train ride home and in the author's acknowledgement section and my supervisor's name was in it!  I looked at the other book and her name was in there as well.  These aren't some rinky-dinky authors either; these are New York Times' Best Selling Authors.  My supervisor is hardcore.

My job is like a regular job; unlimited diet coke, coffee, office supplies, I work from 9:15am-5:15pm,  and there is tight security.  Security is so tight that you need an access card just to enter and exit your floor (by stairs or by elevator).  I love it so much though.  Everyone I've met in the office is fabulous, no sass whatsoever.  In addition, I get an hour lunch break and I have my own email address at HarperCollins.  (I love my life.)

Anywho, let's get to the quote of the day Dec. 17th:

"When great things happen in your life don't suspect something bad to happen, doing this ends the flow of greatness.  Great things come to those who think with great positivity; keep those great thoughts flowing and your life will do the same."

It's getting late and I have to leave my house around 8am to get to work so I gotta let you beauties go.  I wish you all the best of happiness.  Stay true kids.

Peace, love & Obama,
Gabriel Anderson
