    My boss acts like there is a gazillion things

    to get done when in reality we are pretty caught up. Also, the "gazillion" things are the reasons why I can't be off for a few days. .... So bored

    I have one of the biggest meetings

    for our company today and I feel like crap. Our VP will be in today so it requires everyone to look their best. On a day like today usually I would comb my hair and be like "just be happy I'm here"...today that is not an option : /

    Holy shite balls. I'm going to get home

    while it's still light out. This is huge because I rarely leave on time and when I do it's usually because I have an appointment or class and I still don't get home til it's dark.

    In one of my last posts I talked about this girl

    that always flirted with me and wore really low cut shirts that made it where I could see down her ****. Well it finally happened. A couple of days ago I went back to the supple closet to get some stuff and when I opened the door she was in there too. She must have been trying...

    10 hours is not enough.

    If I was allowed to work more than 2 hours over my shift I would have stayed til 8 yesterday. Trying not to feel overwhelmed. I knew my plate was going to runith over once my manager was back in the office.

    I was kind of hoping

    that some of the people I have to deal with had made New Year's resolutions to not suck at their jobs. But to no avail. I have spent the morning cleaning up crap and putting out fires caused by other people. Well at least I can say that I have stuck to my resolution of not...

    Someday I will work in an office

    if everything goes right with my degree plan. I'm fine with being a future cubicle dweller. I like the idea of having my own little space with a computer to do work on in a sit-down, climate-controlled office environment. I figure if I can go to work everyday in slacks and a...

    I really wanted this new position

    but had my reservations. should have trusted my gut. I've worked for my company for 8 years now and if I know anything it's that change is constant. It will not look or feel the same a year from now maybe even months from now and the thought of that makes things a bit more...

    An email was sent listing off names of coworkers

    who contributed to large projects and thanking them. I was a key player in 2 of the big ones and I wasn't mentioned at all. I hate being unappreciated. I can't rightly say something otherwise it makes me look like I'm seeking praise. Ugh.
