more work posting

Friday, July 14th, 2017

Going in early today to shadow another department. What I hope this is: A pre-interview introduction that leads to a new job before the end of the year. What I have a sneaking suspicion this is: A way to have me take on more work in my current job under the guise of “helping out” […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

Not even sure what to make of this one. We typically have a team meeting every Wednesday, which is great, fine, good plan. Gets everyone on the same page. I’m for it. And once a month or so that meeting includes a guest speaker who makes more money than us talking about whether or not […]

not actually a secret

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

I am not-so-secretly terrified of social media. I mean, sure, I post here, and I lurk on tumblr more than I should probably admit. Conceptually, I can see the benefits of having an online presence. But I worry a lot. (I mean, about everything, not just my online presence, but that’s part of it.) What […]

Tips for success at any workplace meeting: 1. Bring a pen and paper. There’s always a chance they might come in handy, plus they make you look more official while you wander around the building looking for the meeting room. 2. Or just a pen. Fiddling with a writing utensil is fun and distracting for […]

Monday rambling

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

Since I’m working early today, I set my alarm a little early too. And then, of course, proceeded to dream all night about sleeping through it and being late. Pretty standard fare. And the job I was late to was sort of a weird amalgamation of my current job and my last job — a […]

also, it’s the weekend

Sunday, July 2nd, 2017

I’ve been trying to figure out a post about work, and how people in power use the phrase “we don’t want you to feel that way” like it’s the end of the conversation, like any discontent you feel after that is your own fault, certainly not theirs (they don’t want you to feel that way), […]

workaday Thursday

Thursday, June 29th, 2017

I have been confusing dates all week. What month is this? What year is it? *This morning I tried to find more information on registering for an event, only to realize (after an embarrassingly long time) that it happened back in 2015. *Yesterday, I was baffled by why we would be receiving 100+ orders “this […]

workaday Thursday

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

Last night I dreamed about tidying, and also my plants. I mean, my dream!plants were pretty neat, but it turns out dream!me also is bad at watering properly. That’s got nothing to do with work, but it *is* Thursday, and I *am* going to work, and I didn’t feel like I had much else to […]

workaday Thursday

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

Worked an earlier shift today, which was weird, but not unpleasant. The cat is confused. I am also confused, so I am at a loss to assist. What am I doing? What time is it? It is 7 pm. I am doing the 9 am things. It feels like the start of a shift work […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

Given these two factors: 1. My workplace may or may not be moving an additional 30 minutes further away. 2. My job may or may not be slowly driving me around the bend. I am currently looking at other options. Sadly, rich eccentric is still off the table. However: 1. Job hunting is basically awful. […]
