What I wish was different
Honestly, there's not much I would change about the job. By then end, everyone on staff is completely exhausted, but I don't really think there's a way to avoid that, and it's also kind of integral to the experience. It wouldn't be the same if we weren't going a little crazy during the last week. There are a lot of things that are really hard about adjusting to the position. It can feel intensely lonely, overwhelming, and I can guarantee that you will never feel fully rested, but I think there isn't a way around those things. I've definitely learned the most from the difficult aspects, and it's necessary to do that learning.
