Excited for years. Towards the end, not so much. One time someone crashed into my car at the entrance to my Advocates building, and I was sort of relieved I didn't have to go in there for awhile.
Dread. There is a lot to do in one day, and many tasks are time sensitive. Add to that the unpredictability of supporting individuals, and your day can quickly get out of hand. Before you know it, the day is done, you didn’t get to the 5 reports you were supposed to write, and your supervisor is wondering what you did all day.
I dreaded it entirely. On most days before going in I would sit in my car and pray for a good day.
Usually dread to be honest. Interestingly enough my dread was rarely, if ever, centered around clinical work. Rather I was constantly dreading the amount of work I had to do. Honestly had my bosses (and yes I had 3 bosses) been more supportive and helpful this dread probably would not have been as significant.
