I was going through and cleaning up some files. I’ve used My Writing Spot for a while now as a place to jot notes down and start small writing bits. I was going through the files I had there and got caught off guard. At the beginning of this year, I had intended to write a weekly prompt. The first week was a letter to my past self.
For some reason, I was thinking today was December 5. There’s been so many different things going on that sometimes it feels like my days merge periodically. During the work week, when things are busy, that’s when this feeling is the worse. It hasn’t been so bad in the last week or two (thankfully), but we have a major meeting coming up in about two weeks and I know things are going to get stressful.
I actually don’t understand it. Dear government, want to know what to save money on? Stop sending people to such repetitive training and let us actually do our jobs.
It’s only Tuesday and it’s already a long week. I’m in yet another training. If I sat down and did the calculations, I would hazard to guess that I spend 30-40 percent of my time in training, in the barely just started third month that I’ve been here. And I feel like throttling one of my coworkers in the group we are together in. Super grateful I don’t work in the same division as them.
One of my biggest complaints about my last job is that I was extremely bored. It drives me nuts to be bored. Its not that I didn’t have anything to do, but it was just slow. And I had a hard time waiting on things to get finished. I like something that’s constant with a few breaks for breathing. I also didn’t have final say on things and I wasn’t working with a team. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to meet a timeline and have something held up for review that shouldn’t of taken long to review.
