What in the world do I want?
I don't want to be an admin assistant forever. The company I work for is great: I'm paid well, I have amazing benefits, given expensive holiday gifts, and taken on a yearly lavish vacation (called an "offsite meeting"). My coworkers are kind, and I have a great reputation with our clients who come in. When I'm treated rudely by a client, our company promptly drops them, as they value their employees' happiness.
But I don't want to be an assistant forever. I want something more than this - I just wish I knew what. I think I'd enjoy technical writing, but since I've never tried it I don't know. I'm a good communicator, I love interacting with people, and I'm regularly told I have a "sunshiny" or peppy personality. I like puzzles, and I enjoy being creative. I work just as well as part of a team or on my own... but really I'm not particularly "good" at anything other than writing.
I don't know how to get out of the assistant rut. I'd like to move up in this company, but the question is what is "up" for someone like me? An executive assistant? Project manager/coordinator? All glorified "assistant" positions...
