Day 17: 5 Reasons Why My Job Doesn’t Suck

Yes, I know, I’m reaching today. Once again, it’s 11:30pm, and I’m only just starting my blog. I’ll be glad when November is over and I can cut back to a more reasonable blog or two per week. Maybe then I’ll actually be able to come up with interesting content…

For those of you who don’t know, I am the Resident Manager for a Homeowner’s Association on the Oregon Coast. The neighborhood is made up of 35 single family homes, 10 condominiums, 107 townhomes and 30 lots that haven’t been built upon yet. I am the only employee.

Now, I know what you’re thinking…”But Jen, if you’re the only employee, who do you blame when something is wrong?” For the answer to that question, I remind you that the URL to this blog is…because was not available. (haha)

While it’s true that working alone day in and day out with no one to help get the work done can sometimes be a bit bothersome, here are just a few reasons why it ain’t quite as bad as you might think…

  1. I get to work with some stellar local talent. I mean, check out this 8 1/2 x 11″ business card. It’s short. It’s sweet. It’s to the point. You’re not left wondering just what exactly is the nature of this man’s business. Got moles? Ted is your man. 20171024_155901
  2. People bring me wine. (These 3 bottles were all from today…I kid you not!) And occasionally flowers. 20171117_143244
  3. The view could be worse…20170719_083313
  4. I get paid to walk around the neighborhood and…look at stuff.20170620_201656
  5. I get to spend my lunch hour at the beach every day (that it’s not pouring down rain and hail with 80 mph winds…)20170821_19340720171110_125045

BONUS REASON: But the best reason of all is that I get to take my puppy to work with me every day.
