I just finished my first day on the job. They said that a lot of the work was tedious. I didn't realize just how much of it was tedious, though!
That's not to say that it's a bad job. I might prefer a job in the library, but this one seems pretty good. And if it does start to get too tedious and too boring, I can probably just bring along an audio book or music to listen to. I somehow suspect that I won't resort to that, though.
Today I just folded papers, stapled papers together, and put together packets for potential students. I had no idea how much time that kind of stuff spent. Next time I get any kind of packet in the mail, I will be grateful to whoever's job it was to put everything together and stay organized.
