Event”full” week

This week has been more of the same trying to catch-up:  citations, legal research, committee meetings, and file organization.  I completed the newsletter for the office and the Chief of Staff continually says nice things about the work I do.  I feel like there needs to be a balance and have her give me a few tips.  I’ve checked-in with her and she seems to be happy with my performance, so I guess I’ll just stay the course.

A few events of the week to highlight: Unalaska reception with all the crab you can eat; Perseverance play “A raisin in the Sun, about poverty, racism and assimilation; ” Cultural and Education Summit where the kids performed native dances and stood together to say “I like me.”; Women’s Reproductive right Conference Racial equality discussion; and Celebrating women in Alaskan politics with Arlis Strugeluski, Fran Ulmer and others.  It’s amazing what they can pack into one week.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Some reflections of the week:  I’ve found “the more I learn, the less I know;” cliché, yes, but true nonetheless.  I realize I may put more emphasis than needed on tasks I am assigned.  I’ve found it necessary to be patience with others as they are working on items ready to make a difference for women, children, health, safety and I am here to learn.  Perhaps one day, I’ll be the one making a difference for these and other groups.  I’m thankful for each opportunity.
