I will say, there are some good parts to the job. Ultimately, I'm helping people get to school. However, this is what I do about, oh, 10% of the time. The other 90%? Busy work, nothing work, or nothing in general as I often finish my work within the first 2 hours of the day.
Goodness gracious! Is this how office jobs are??
There's a reason, I'm realizing, why so many people love The Office and Office Space, as they SO ACURATELY portray the mundane trappings a desk and florescent lighting can box you into.
When it comes to a job that is boring and less-than-desirable, I think there are two types of people:
- The kind that are able to separate work life from home life. One does not affect the other.
- The kind that feels bogged down in ALL areas of life when they are not doing something relevant/passionate/something they feel called to do.
I am, of course, the second kind of person. Some days are good, most days have ended up badly. It's a problem when work life starts to seep into social life, and you start feeling lackluster even in social settings. Hmmm...this isn't me. And this is a sign that some changes need to happen.Of course, this means applying for different jobs (within the university and outside of the university). This also means keeping a better attitude about things. Also, I'm keeping my options open in general. I would be lying to you if I said I wasn't taking a glance overseas again. But nothing drastic, kids...just window shopping.
