Yesterday and tomorrow are days off (technically tomorrow isn’t off as I’m going in for a test). I’ve managed to do half my laundry, eat lots, and even get a nap in!! My next shift starts in about 4 hours providing they don’t call to beg I go in early.
In early, hmmmm Apparently I am good at what I do as I’m on the short list of the first people called for extra time. Even with two days off this week my schedule will give me 60 hours and that’s not taking account for the morning “can you come in now??” calls I receive every day.
While the job I am working is crap and I don’t expect to be there soon I still take pride in it.
Being able to play a cornerstone role has given me………..
Matter of fact I think the experience was needed!! Lately I’ve felt pretty useless being able to play a cornerstone role has given me some of my old drive back. I’ve also begun to learn patience and understanding with others. I never thought that such a simple and crap job would have much result.
Thank god I have other irons in the fire as surviving on this job alone would surely be a stress filled life. And yet people do it!! For whatever reason, I’ve met plenty that are well qualified and smart but just can’t seem to land the job for whatever reason.
I suppose it’s a blessing I know my reason?! Today I will do my shift and do the best I can and I will attempt to keep my thoughts of the past and future at bay, a simple sideline as to who I am presently.
Again take pride in all you do, the best legacy is that you always worked hard and took pride in that
