The underemployment side of downsized (the job-shift version) ...
I am stuck to the desk because I had been stripped of duties I used to have (the interesting ones) ... slightly longer hours, same pay, no benefits anymore ...
business picks up a little, but it takes a long time for them to see the cash ... (etc.)
If I have to use the phone for the company's business, they get suspicious
And I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop ...( ? )
The upside is, I am (while still chained to the desk) reading the news online ...
Browsing amazon (can't afford to buy much)
Oh, seriously studying/previewing pilates videos on myyogaonline.com (I'm in the midst of a free one-month trial), with sound down or off ... I do dance, yoga and pilates at home ... with or without video/audio guidance ...
Anyhoo, I work in a company in not the sort of business where I could advance myself during downtime; I kind of work for what Richard Florida once wrote about--a "creative class" member--in a very tiny office ...
my coworker doesn't even bother to teach herself computers, so why should I (do much in that realm, I do something, of course because I love to LEARN ... but very little)
