We'll see

Dear Livejournal,

I've been thinking a lot about work, but I feel like I need to talk to other people about it, too. I've been working at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in their HR group, but I wonder if I should do something more beneficial to people and such. Maybe it's because I'm a contractor their and am not in the regular group, but I know people who work for Night Ministry and Misericordia and stuff . . . and maybe it would be better for me to work there.

Part of my job has been pretty boring, tbh. I also think about what it is that I do . . . It's called "Human Resources Information Systems." In a way, my job is to computerize the labor of human beings. : / How can you feel good about that?

I write those things, and I think about them, but I feel like it's just a growing process. Questioning how I want to live knowing that I have the ability to make choices for myself. Part of it is, "What would be fun? What would be a good challenge for me? Where can I be helpful?"

It struck me today that, when I moved to Chicago, my first job was at Northwestern's Office of Medical Education, and I used that time to figure out where I wanted to go, what I wanted to do. Now I'm back at Northwestern . . . just a few blocks from where I worked when I got here, and I have the same sets of questions and opportunities in front of me. We'll see how things turn out.
