Was I Out of My Head?

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: April 20, 2008

So… it’s Sunday which means tomorrow is Monday.. How did I ever figure that one out. It also means I get to go back to work. yay..

Before I got into my rant, I just want to make one thing clear. I am thankful that I have a job. Very thankful. It came at a good time. I don’t mind working. I WANT to work.

But I am so bored. I have been since I started. I’ve had the job about 6 1/2 months now and things haven’t improved. I talked to my “kinda sorta” supervisor one day and explained the situation. She gave me some stuff to do. Then when she was checking in on me, she told me I was working too fast. I understand the point she was making, but what kind of messed up situation is that? I have to stretch out the mundane task I’ve been given so I can continue to have work to do? I knew when she gave me the list of stuff it would only keep my busy a couple of weeks. But she was oh so excited because she thought we had made some type of progress. It was really stuff she should have told me to do before I even asked, but this “kinda sorta” supervisor thing is new to her. I told her before I thought the position could be done part time. If I could take the pay cut, I’d mention to my “real” supervisor (her boss) as a way to save money cause the department budget is hurting right now.

It’s just hard to be excited and motivated about a job when there is not a big need for you to be there. I think they should have waited until the program was a little bigger before hiring an extra person over here.

I’m keeping my head up though and trying to stay positive. There is a lesson to be learned in every situation. You just have to be willing to learn. I want to learn.
