The thing about temping that Girl Friday loved was its entire nature of impermanence. Even in a long-term assignment, Girl Friday could always see the so-called light at the end of the tunnel. She believed that working as a temp helped her reserve her mental faculties for after hours when she could muse over her diary and write spiteful things. Now as a fully obligated worker bee, she is being lulled by the quiet hum of white noise into pink-collar depression. Is this really all there is? Do I make a difference? Is this meaningful? Girl Friday doesn’t claim to understand universal quandaries, but does know that an 8 to 5 job is not conducive to her writing life!
The nature of a Superheroine is to rise above challenges, no matter how small, and turn ordinary life into the most extraordinary adventure. Girl Friday is blessed to know such wonderful women that have larger than life goals and the skills to accomplish everything they tackle. As we speak, Girl Friday is fighting the good fight against complacency with her stalwart determination and sensible, yet fashionable office attire.
Will Girl Friday’s dream of writing the Great American novel be realized, or will she be mired in the quicksand of mediocrity?
Details to come, Paris to approve!
