6 years and 1 day

...the amount of time i've been working at my current work place.  Man time flies when you dislike your job.

I don't know if I've always "disliked" it.  I think at the beginning I was very happy to write slides and create charts.  But somewhere around year 2 or 3 things changed.  There are only so many charts you can make before you never ever want to see a media chart again. 

My dad once told me I didn't ever stick with anything.  He was technically right at the time, I "dropped" out of dance classes, curling club, choir, drama club.  Other then high school I don't think I've done something for this long ever. I guess I can finally say dad I stuck with something!

Although its been 6 years at Zenith, this year will be my 8th year since I graduated from College. Unreal to believe its really been that long.  Where did the time go? 

In that 8 years I've lived in 6 different apartments with 7 different people.  I've been through 5 boyfriends and stuck with number 5 for 3+ years now. I've been to over 10 weddings, and have 3 more this year.  I've welcomed 1 "substitute niece" and 1 "substitute nephew", and will be welcoming a real niece or nephew in-law this year.

And although I'd love to leave my job for something more rewarding and self-satisfying.  At the moment its not really possible due to me being too scared to leave for one, and second buying a house this year is my main priority.  So I stick to it, and although I don't always show up on time, i'll be there tomorrow putting in my 110% to get the job done.

  1. Why don't you fix up your resume and just see what's out there? You don't have to be afraid of leaving your job if you still work there and look at the same time!

    You have too many years left of work to dislike it this much. xo
