The perks of a boring job

boringjobs

 

Let’s just say I listen to a lot of TED talks.

My office environment is lax, besides the few passive aggressive emails I receive from my (woman) boss every so often. Also, My chatty co-worker just moved cubicles a few weeks ago and now I am all by myself in my cubicle (besides the fact that my other (male) boss could easily tunnel vision me by a simple turn of his head).

So with that said I rejoice in the silence and take full advantage of it filling it with Education. I can’t listen to audiobooks because it is hard to follow sometimes with office interruptions, but I do listen to a lot of TED talks, when I am not busy counting down the minutes to go home, and I actually quiet enjoy them and thankful I am able to.

 

Here are some of the stuff that stayed with me and I want to share them with you:

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.
