    Today I found out not only am I the highest paid person in my department but I also make more than my supervisor.

    I have a long list of deadlines to meet

    before the term closes in two weeks. It is like doing the last sprint to the finishing line. I cannot afford to slow down. I need this final burst of energy. With this much to do, where do I find time to feel bored?

    not that I dislike working,

    I find it quite fun at times and my job is good but the problem I have is that I have to lead a double life. my work life and my social life. obviously I'm a different person out of work and I can curse, drink and just be me. working, I have to be professional and smile even...

    but just now I am asking myself why

    for hell I am doing that. Every morning at 4.15 a. m. my alarm clock is ringing, I am rushing to my work, I have almost 200 hours overtime and still too much vacation to get, but it´s not allowed to take it. My salary is so much small, that there´s no comfort at all in the...

    Two of my colleagues are functioning alcoholics.

    I know what you're thinking..it's the stress of working with me-but they were like that before so I figure I'm not guilty. I worked with one previously except she ended up not functioning so well and she had to leave work eventually..she was a lovely soul. Her ex husband sent me...

    I work with a woman I secretly despise.

    I don't think she knows- I mean I pride myself on being professional and she's pretty good at her job. I just wish she didn't affect me like this, there really are a lot more nasty evil people in my town and the world but it's really something I can't explain. In a self help...

    I just get home after a long day

    and a night shift, now when I lay down on my bed after that long journey, I think of how it seemed possible to end the work by today as we started late at night, everyone was panicking and in rush. But we did it and the results were just as perfect and expected from the team...

    Yep my job has no benefits,

    sick days or vacation. It's 24/7 365 days a year. I have no pay in money anyway. I get it in the love of my family and the satisfaction of knowing I've meet their needs. My full time job is being a stay at home mom to now 6 kids and a wife to my husband.
