Why I Come to Work

Yesterday I went on my weekly mail check. I headed to the mail room with low expectations and returned with a box of cookies from my friend’s mom and a Valentine’s Day check from my uncle.  Success.  Today I went on the Press’ daily mail check.  I left with high expectations and returned with a return. Sad irony.  At least I got to carry a box back, instead of a catalog, or a bill, or a letter addressed to someone not the WFU Press.  The mail walk can be a pretty depressing task, but luckily that walk ends at the door of the Press.  Once through that door, I am surrounded by interns and dogs and Candide.  It’s much warmer than our current February weather, and much busier than the upper quad during class time.  Here there are people to talk to, books to be proof-read, and (my personal favorite) food to be eaten.  And this is why I come to work.    -Maura Connolly
