“Looks like someone has a case of the Mondays.” – Office Space
Too bad it’s Wednesday. Night. I should be borderline elated the weekend is within arm’s reach. But, I am not. I’m kinda grumpy right now. Like this guy. It seems like lately most of my days are spent doing things I don’t want to do with people I don’t want to spend time with in a place I don’t want to be. Is this what adulthood is? Giving away the majority of your time, effort and energy for someone else’s dream, only to start your day at 5 o’clock? I know I went back to school so I wouldn’t be in this position forever, but right now the light at the end of the tunnel is the size of a pin prick. I dread going to work and it’s probably because lately I’ve been made aware of my mistakes left and right. My bosses (who can be demanding at times) and clients (NOT salt of the earth kinda folks, let’s just leave it at that), and inexperienced colleagues have made enjoying my job challenging. Don’t get wrong, I’m not placing blame. It’s just crazy busy and I’m only one person. That, and I hate making mistakes, and being reminded of each and every little mistake, and feeling responsible for staff members’ mistakes. Coupled with getting cursed at and hung up on on a daily basis, I wonder what the crap I’m doing here… Oh, did I mention I work with criminals? Literally.
OKAY, PITY PARTY OVER.
Thanks for letting me vent. All 3 of you out there. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s focus on the positive, which includes making more time for the activities that make me happy. In pouring all of this out on the page, I feel even more determined to power through the rough stuff and devote time to me. So, that means I will work out, I will get enough sleep, and I will enjoy simple joys like taking more photos, traveling, baking, and stopping by this blog more often. (Which, btw, I totally have a few posts up my sleeve, I’m just rationing them out in the next few weeks.) So stay tuned! And, thanks again. xo
