On a daily, basis, I like to make jokes about being old, boring and chubby. Most people around me, especially at work have grown to learn and sometimes enjoy my little idiosyncrasies. All of my student workers have learned with a short period of time to scowl when I habitually floss my teeth and when I do almost anything. They know I will change my mind, rearrange things, and say incredibly random things on a very regular basis.
It is not surprising that after less than a month, my new student workers are just as much family as the last. My old student worker still has no problem coming in ad eating my box of doughnuts, but the new workers have a new sense of comfort that is hard to explain.
A few short days ago, my intern and I were working on our social media plan. One item that was brought up was Snapchat. My initial reaction was, what the hell is the point of this? Well, I got the account. I have had no shame in messaging Julie for help. When I do something on there, they insist on checking my work, they guide me, and they make fun of me when I get frustrated when I can't figure out how to go back to something.
When I was young, I was told to never cave to peer pressure. Whoever warned about this never knew about a 30 year old supervising people in their 20s.
