Uhhh, all this good experience

This new interim editing job has been learning on the fly. Every day I am added to a new list and given new guidelines and policies and it is killing me because I am very much someone who is like, okay, I have a list, and I have to get this, this, and this done but before I settle in people are like "And this, and this!" But at the same time it is really good experience. I feel like I am getting a behind the scenes glance at something I probably should have seen a while ago and I am learning how the real world works in terms of how places that pay writers like me operate. I appreciate every lesson I'm getting because there is no way this won't be helpful at my next thing. But oh god, it is so tiring to learn. I have been letting myself eat a lot of desserts lately.
