Reasons why I should enjoy my job

14368905_563705627169645_8493449225522911358_nHello Wonderful Reader,

I am having the Sunday/Monday blues here. It’s 11:12 pm and I am not looking forward to the next day. I have vowed so many times during HARD TIMES that I would never complain about idiotic, trivial things such as traffic, or a job. BUT, here I am!! In a humble effort I am going to try to shift my perspective by listing the reasons why I am grateful for my job.

 

  1. I start at 6:00 am (by choice) and get off at 2:30 pm, which is earlier than most people.
  2. I can use my headphones at work.
  3. We have a Keurig machine at work (free coffee).
  4. My boss is working remotely and only comes 1 week out of the month.
  5. I have my own big cubicle, that is isolated from all others cubicles (except the fact the GM has tunnel vision to mine).
  6. I take 40 minutes lunches (instead of 30 minutes).
  7. I get to run my own meeting every week (which I dread but it is good practice to get out of my comfort zone).
  8. I get along with a couple of girls at work.
  9. It is generally a relaxed environment.
  10. My office is less than 20 people.
  11. We kinda don’t have a dress code.
  12. I GET PAID.

    Footnotes

    * This dummy proof method has been working for me lately cause I am one of those who tend to complicate things and would want to start with the BIGGEST task first and my brain would get overwhelmed and discourage me from doing ANYTHING that day (true story) and It’s not like I could do something fun and care-free either because I feel guilty and like I have pending things to do. If you’re like me and you’re brain tend to conspire against you the same way my brain does then try this method.

     

    ** Also when I first wake up my list tend to consist of of stuff my everyday morning routine like Take a shower or Make breakfast. As you can see, those aren’t tasks that I need to accomplish per se but I like tricking my brain that way as I’m crossing those tasks off of my list so I can feel motivated¬†and continue to be productive, just like the image demonstrates.

I got fired today (Part 2)

I really didn’t care and their opinions was nothing to me. But there is something about endings and goodbyes that leave me sad and sentimental. Knowing that it was my last time doing all the things I did, that always seemed frivolous to me, made me savor them. I grew pensive as I was opening the cabinets to look at how I organized them for one last time. Or logging in and out with my account that will soon be stripped out of its privileges.

Then, I started emptying out my cabinet and securing my belongings in my purse. I decided to leave my name tag though as an attempt to secure as little of presence as this small name can hold. In the back of head, I knew that soon someone will scratch it off and no will care but still. I left the the cabinet out displaying its emptiness…
