Dept. of Just Keep Swimming

Two Days 'til Vacation

And I'm going to make it, I swear.

How do I know I need it?

Because this is the extent of my posting ability.

I will, perhaps, have more to say tomorrow, but that's not a given. Tomorrow, we are supposed to begin using our new editorial platform. Tomorrow we've all been told to begin handing in reports, prior to 9 a.m., about what stories we intend to get done that day. Am I surprised? No. I'm just muttering, "Thirty-six months until early retirement, I don't care how penurious my existence will be after that, 36 months, 36 months, I can live on cardboard and peanut butter if I have to, 36 blessed months ...."

I still like my job, and sometimes I still love it; it's just that I don't feel that way constantly. It's become more intermittent as I get older and more tired. But by the end of last night I was feeling a little ragged, as one does, so I griped.

Thanks for the hugs - have a bunch back - and I'm so glad to hear your news!

Ahhh, bad days. Man, do I ever understand them!! And yes, as one gets older, one has less tolerance for asshattery. UGH.

Thank you, sweetie!! I was thrilled to share that news!

*HUGS*

As someone said to me over on Dreamwidth, it's now 36 months, less a day, so I've successfully cut 24 hours off my waiting time. Heh. And as I told a_phoenixdragon, I still like my job, just not as unreservedly as I once did.

Today I feel a little better about the job, and a little guilty about griping so much, especially when so many people have so much worse situations. And as I told a_phoenixdragon, I do still love aspects of my job, just more intermittently than I once did. Thanks for the thoughts, and rest assured I'm in a sunnier mood today!

I get you, but you have a right to be frustrated and express it, even if other people are indeed worse off. You're a human being and we all have our struggles!

Glad to hear you're feeling more positive :) ♥
