Damn this cat and his eternal optimism! Why can't I be like him? I don't know if I'm just not cut out for my job or if my job is not cut out for me, but whatever the situation is, I know for a fact that this is just not working like it should. Spending 8 full hours sitting at a desk and staring at a screen is starting to make me feel like a zombie slug. On top of that, I can't bring myself to care about what I am doing any more than it takes to be just efficient enough to get by. I am usually passionate about everything I do, but I just can't get behind this adminitrative stuff (who can??)
Lucky for me, I am already enrolled in my yoga teacher training program, I will start in May, and if I play my cards right, I will be able to make enough $$ teaching yoga to quit this mismatched job of mine.
But, for the time being, I am stuck here, staring at this screen. All.Day.Long. That is part of the reason I started this blog, to provide a momentary escape from the tediousness of my work. I also have a few other ways of making my day a little more enjoyable:
- Listening to my favorite music on Rhapsody while I work
- Taking a walk when I can get away from my work for a little bit
- Subscribing to newsletters in things that interest me such as nutrition, cooking and yoga so that I can keep in touch with what's new in those areas
- Exercising and doing yoga when I get home
None of this makes up for the fact that I am spending the majority of my day doing something that I do not enjoy at all, but it does make me feel like I still have some sort of identity other than the dreaded zombie slug, not to mention, it keeps my brain occupied until 5 o'clock rolls around.
If anyone out there who's reading this has any awesome suggestions for how to cope with a boring job, PLEASE, be my savior and put them in the comments section! Here's to a more positive tomorrow :)
