Merit…

Counts for less than nothing in the current employment world.

And no one will convince me otherwise.

Why I work this hard I will never know…

Getting ahead…

leave a comment »

Sometimes I have so much on the go, I get a whole bunch of things done early because I know I need the time for things coming up.

Other times, I get things done early because I read my calendar or my schedule incorrectly.

Tempus fugit… Or as I like to say ‘tempus eff-it I’m behind anyways’

Challenge…

A lot of things have been a challenge lately. For my patience, for my mental well being (mostly of the not getting all rage-stabby variety).

I’ve had enough of this ride, and I want off.

Professionalism…

leave a comment »

Sometimes, regardless of how tired and burnt out you are, how many times you haven’t been at your diplomatic best over the past little while, there are still limits to what you can get away with.

And despite it being hilarious, making a tiny amigurumi Loki to sit on my wall facing the door with a sign that says ‘KNEEL’ is still, probably, a bad idea.

Doesn’t mean I don’t really REALLY want to do it anyways, but you know…

Break point…

leave a comment »

When I’m weaving, I often get so excited about colour, I forget to check that a yarn can withstand the beating when it’s warped.

This usually means that when I’m not paying attention, one or more of my warp threads will snap.

Mostly, it involves patching something in to fix the break… but it doesn’t always work.

And by the time I realize I should have tested, I find I won’t abandon it and I spend a ridiculous amount of time fixing something I should have checked before getting all excited in the first place.

This is what burnout does to your brain. Even fun things become a bit of a mess.

Cause for concern…

leave a comment »

You know, when someone tells me a person I’ve been relying on and scheduling until December is up for renewal, when I assumed already they HAD been?

This makes me freak out. And hyperventilate a bit. Also start to stress about how the hell to deal with MORE work…

Don’t tell me to relax, and that there are 2 weeks left. With two weeks left, I’d have found another job.

Memory…

leave a comment »

Not everyone with an eidetic memory can apply it to good use. You don’t CHOOSE which memories you remember in vivid detail.

My skill? Remembering entire dungeon layouts well enough to walk someone through them without having to look at any reference material.

If only these skills could be used for good instead of useless crap…
