Don't like to see you down like this, Jenn. Would it be foolish to tell your boss that you've finished all your work for the day and you'd be happy to do some of his (her?) work for her? Any way to initiate a project on your own? Declutter the filing drawers? There has to be something around there you could improve. I sort of know how you feel. Office jobs bore me stiff if I'm not creating something. Not that I have a lot of experience there, but as a student I had a part-time office assistant job. After I had created the filing system from scratch (former head just threw everything in a drawer), graphed all the budget files, and got everything in order, I got bored filling in my own forms and just keeping graphs up-to-date (this was pre-computer, you understand) and I quit. I was replaced with a real secretary who apparently took five hours to do what I would do in one.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
