Work and my Reader

I am finally catching up on commenting and blogs in general. I have had a very hectic couple of weeks.

The semester finally ended. Which was very, very stressful, and I am waiting for my grades.

I was going down the road of demotivation and I hadn't realized it. I didn't take the time to think about it and have it hit me. But it did hit me. In the face.

I wasn't very happy with my job, it's been a year, almost and I was reflecting on my professional development ever since I started here, and I realized I didn't develop much- if at all. I also have issues regarding my salary.

Slowly, I started being late to work. And it became a daily thing, and my absence was going out of hand. My boss did something that I don't really appreciate...I wrote my resignation and kept it there and was seriously considering quitting...I talked to people about it and things. And I thought maybe I should try.

I emailed top management, I got a phone call from head of HR regarding my punctuality issues and it was a bit of a wake up call.

*end work rant*

I just unsubscribed from all my google reader subscriptions by mistake and I feel like crying... Recommendations please?

Oh Sara, I am so sorry. Why is it that when it rains, it pours? I certainly know what demotivation feels like. I went through that this semester, too. I am kind of disappointed in myself and dreading grades. But hey, it is over, and the only thing we can do is try harder. I truly hope that you find the path that is right for you with the situation at work. You deserve better!

Sara, I hope you are doing better than when you posted this. I'm sorry about what you are going through. Please carry my love along the roads with you. If I were in the same town as you, I would give you multiple hugs.

Oh that is tough. Being in a job that isn't fulfilling is one of the worst things.

I hope things get better for you!!

I have plenty of experience being in a job that is unfulfilling--pays crap--horrible boss, you name it! I don't know your situation or you really but I sincerely hope it gets better!

Sometimes months pass and we don't think we have changed or progressed, and then in hindsight, we can find things and lessons of unexpected value. Here's hoping you find the value!

Did your google reader subscriptions come back? I can't get mine to permanently delete...so maybe you have cookies hidden on your computer somewhere that will bring them back?
