Overslept to start my Day

Friday, March 04, 2011

I overslept this morning. It rained/sleeted just before I left for work and left icy patches on the roads everywhere. Trying to avoid an accident, I started sliding and ended up heading toward a parking lot where a mail box knocked out a small part of my bottom grill. But I did make it to work on time. Many at my work didn't and there were a lot of accidents all over the place.

The girl I work under pointed out to me that I shouldn't cut off a major crinkle on the papers I get ready for her to scan. This came the day after she told me she couldn't have ANY crinkles in the paper. Can't make her happy - don't know that I can. So, I just stayed quiet and out of everyone's way and took my good old time going through the folders today. Not much else to do. I am trying my best to find another job as I realize this job and I were not meant to be together.

My back is a little sore tonight from being so tense today. I think a long, hot bubble bath is in order along with an early bed time. Tomorrow is another day.

Still Hunting An Attitude Adjustment

Thursday, March 03, 2011

I did catch up a little on my sleep last night, which has helped my attitude a little bit. But I'm still in a bit of a funk that I can't seem to shake yet. I'm hoping that by staying busy and accomplishing some things that I need to do today will help. I know that if I have a good job interview and get that office manager job, my attitude should improve a bunch. I know that the job I have right now is not a good fit for me, and wonder if that has a bit to do with my attitude problem. I also know that if I get a little more sleep each night, that should help, too. So...I've got some work to do today.

Decisions to be Made

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

I realized today that this job is not the best suited to me. I am doing one thing over and over for 8 hours a day. The girls in the office don't talk to me I'm not getting enough money or hours. And my ADD will kick in now and again because it's easy to drift when doing a repetitive action all day.

I also think that my doctor's lowering of my thyroid medicine may not be in my best interest right now. I don't feel like my energy level is what it was.

I've got tomorrow off. I will be calling my doctor in the morning and hunting jobs. I will go over my job interview notes before I go to my job interview at 1 pm. And I'm really hoping I have some good luck on my side at this job interview.

    Yes I hope that you have a good interview too, Patty.
The problem with the thyroid is that yo have to wait 2 months to do a new test when they modify the dose, they say it takes that long to stabilise.

Part-Time Work is More Like Full Time

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

I'm not used to this part-time job yet. For one thing, my schedule keeps changing. That makes it hard to plan the rest of my time. For another thing, what I do is really boring. It just seems to suck my energy right out of me. My mind feels like it is turning to mush. All I do is go through files taking out the papers that need to be scanned into the computer. The girls I work with don't talk among themselves, let alone talk to me. (Unless it's to tell me the rules/hours have been changed again.) I'm going to have to plan my schedule better and keep looking for another job that pays more and gives me more to do.

    I wonder if you can wear an mp3 player in one ear to inspire and encourage you! I would want this for you!!

Being in a job that you dislike is SO HARD!! Hang in there with some mantra... like "Boring is better than Starving!" emoticon

I do hope it goes better!

    I remember how boring it was when I was a file clerk in an insurance agency. Boring and hard work! Do you have a way to listen to music? Headphones? That might help the time pass more quickly. And fingers crossed that the new job turns up soon!!!

    Yes it sounds like you will have to keep looking. Try to think it's only temporary.
Difficult situation, for sure.

    My heart feels for you; I so remember being in this situation. I started looking for another job the second day on my part-time job. A suggestion: keep positive sayings somewhere where you can read them often. Also, go to a women's opportunity center, they are good at helping you find something, or go to the unemployment office and check what is available. Next go the the town office building, many times they have postings of jobs available, ask your pastor if he/she knows of any job that is available. Be postitive and keep looking--this job will be a past memory.

So glad you are not allowing yourself to be stuck in that job. Keep up the search...you can make it happen!!

Tired Day

Monday, February 28, 2011

I should know better than to stay up past my "good" bedtime watching shows that I know will last too long. It was sooo difficult to stay alert and motivated this morning at work. (It doesn't help that my work is very tedious!) But, this afternoon I got a little bit of a second wind, thank goodness. I am determined to get to bed at my normal time tonight. I've got a busy morning planned. And I did get asked to come into work tomorrow afternoon for four hours. Of course, I can't turn it down.

I did get a call from another employment agency today. They want me to come in on Thursday to talk about a possible office manager position. It's not close to home. like this job. But, it would be $3-$4 more an hour and I would have more than one thing to do every day. I know - I'm not getting my hopes up. But I'm going to have to try for it anyway. Each interview I go on is a learning experience, and I really don't know until I try.

    You should be very proud that they keep calling. As Claudia says the gas may eat up the profit but if you will be happier "go for it". emoticon

    Yes every time you go to an interview you get calmer and more confident. I got to a point in which I started being relaxed because I thought even if I want a job it might not be a good for me, I don't know so I gave it over to a higher power to make the decision. If it's meant to be it will flow and the same applies to every big decision in our lives. If it pays more but it's far the money might go into petrol. Who knows.
Have a better day tomorrow.
