Donut Girl

Okay, so this morning I called and withdrew from the fall semester of college. I thought that I would feel better once it was done, but I certainly do not. It means that I'm not going to finish this degree and will owe the financial aid people even more money. It's depressing. It also means that I'll never be considered a professional and will continue to live my life as a degreed secretary and donut girl.

What is a donut girl, you ask? Well, I don't work at a donut shop. I work at a regular place like everyone else. For all intents and purposes, it is an office. That's about all you need to know. I have one college degree, but it's not doing me any good. I'm the lowest flag on the flagpole here. That's important to know. I'm also "assistant to the director." Let's make this very clear: I am not assistant director, I'm the assistant to the director. My official title is: Administrative Assistant. It sucks.

Therefore, everytime the director has a meeting with *important people* I have to be donut girl. I'm the one to pick up the treats (donuts, cookies, muffins, browines...), put them on a plate, make coffee, tea, ice water, etc and keep everything filled up all day. It's fun. It is definately what a person with a degree in public relations has aspired to.
