"when you're a big star, tell me, will you miss the earth?"

I understand now why i'm getting $7/hr here when i get $10/hr at home. Michele would never let me just sit around the computer (and Irene sure as hell wouldn't). At the library there is always stuff to be done, but here it's mostly just filing. The phone almost never rings. I hear the filing system is in need of repair, but it hasn't seemed too horrible to me, and i'm not about to just plunk myself down and just start going through it. Honestly, i much prefer being useful all the time, though, as opposed to just being a warm body at a desk. But then again, i am odd. Layna says i'm only the person she knows besides Adas who can audit a class; most everyone just drops stuff they're not getting credit for. For me, though, it's not about the credits, it's about the learning. It's also not about the grades, which can be problematic. And i can't articulate exactly how these two are part of the same mentality, but i know they are.

The amount of paper generated by this office is terrifying. E-mails get printed out and most everything gets multiple copies made of it so copies can go in various different files. It almost makes me sick. The sheer amount of paper generated at this institution in general makes me queasy, actually.
