I just have to take a moment to vent… I HATE MY JOB. Yes, I have a full time job. As much as I like blogging, it doesn’t pay the bills. I am stuck in a career that is male orientated, where women are not taken seriously. I am stuck at a desk all day long, in a room with tan walls and no windows. Like most people in the world, I am over worked and under paid. When I am at work I don’t complain, I just keep my head down and do my job but I still have to listen to everyone around me complain.
There are days that I dream about marching into my boss’s office and quitting. Then reality hits and I am back in the real world, where I have bills to pay and children to feed. It wasn’t always like this, there was a time when I love my job. When I thought I was making a difference and actually helping people. I was focused and wanted to work my way up the ladder. Then it seemed like the further I got up the ladder, the more I got screwed. Now I wish I could go back down the ladder where things were simpler.
I feel like life is too short to spend most of your day at a job that you hate but what am I supposed to do? I can’t quit a job I have been in for over 10 years and start at square one. It’s like being in a long-term relationship, you get to a point where there is no turning back. You have invested so much time and effort, and you don’t want it to be for nothing. I have built up so much vacation time and I hold the health insurance for my family. Maybe this is just the Monday blues or maybe everyone hates there job and that’s just how it is in the real world. How am I supposed to encourage my children to go to college and find a job that they love, when I am not sure that really exist?
