I wanted to share with you this week a massive part of my life that I love – Work. Yep, I consider myself really lucky as I love my job. I mean really love my job. I am not writing this in case the boss man ever happened to take interest in the blog either – his too busy anyway – it’s because I really do appreciate that I get to do something every day that I love and work with some incredible people, and in the spirit of sharing what I love and inspires me, my job is a big part of that. So what is it that I do then? I work in politics for a Federal member of parliament. Whatttttt??? A boring politician!? I hear you all say in unison. Sure, that is the opinion of some but being involved in a world where the key decision making of Australia is made, I find it fascinating and exciting. I never wanted to get in to politics, my degree isn’t in politics, and I have no aspirations to be a politician in the future, but right now it’s one of the things that gets me up every morning, keeps my brain interested and is teaching me so many things I never dreamed possible.
One of the great opportunities I’m very grateful for is the travelling I get to do to Canberra for Parliamentary sittings. Sure it’s cold, and yep the days are long but I love getting to listen to legislation being debated all day – call me crazy, the extra bit of urgency and stress that comes with any work over here and lots of little social coffee and dinner dates with other staffers and Members throughout the week – we’ve got to have a little fun after all right?
I thought this week, with me actually being over in Canberra for said Parliamentary sitting I would bring to you some highlights of the day and the outfits worn around Parliament house throughout the week as a bit of a sneak peak of my job!
