Holding Out

I hope that you all enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend, I know that I did. The work week came around too fast, again. I took today off as well, so that I could get a mini vacation out of the already-extended weekend. However, I spent a good deal of time today worrying about work anyway.

I’d like to have a life that doesn’t include constant anxiety about my job. When I am spending personal time away from my particular vocation, I want to be able to enjoy it. In fact, I would like to sort of combine my work and personal life so that it just feels like life; no work. I’m sure that everyone wants that, so why don’t we all do it?

I’m holding out for a career path that is meant for me. I’m not sure what that is, but either I will find my way to it, or it will find it’s way to me. I am not going to continue on this ever-disappointing path that just leads me to more misery. I don’t want to constantly have to joke about how much I hate my job, just to make it seem like I don’t hate my job. Do you guys do that, too?

I am not meant to stare at a computer screen all day, just copying and pasting data from one spreadsheet to another. I don’t think that anyone is, actually. Haven’t we created a machine that can do that job yet? Hmmmm. I want a chance to look back on my life and know that I did my best and had fun doing it.

This is nothing that you guys haven’t heard before. “Wah, I hate my job…blah, blah, blah”. ¬†I know that I am repeating myself and that it can be obnoxious. Mainly, what I wanted to tell you guys is that I am holding out. I am not giving up, even though it’s tempting. I’ve worked my butt off this weekend and I’m about to go back to work tomorrow and do the same. This cycle will repeat itself until – voil√†, I no longer have to “go into work”.

How you do cope with your job? Do you enjoy it?

  1. I feel the same way. Honestly, I have a hard time sitting at a computer all day in an office. I get through it by doing the little things for myself. Going outside for my break, running in the morning, and knowing that it’ll get through it and one day it will help me get my dream job.
