I don’t dread going back to work. I’m excited for the most part.
But there are some aspects of work that make my stomach queasy. And maybe you could relate
Oh the drama. We could start a reality TV show in our place. Who said what to who, who did what where, who didn’t do this when that. Oh, my, goodness.
Can we just go by one week without imploding. That would be nice.
I’m trying so hard to be positive about this aspect. But when I remember the emotionally draining feeling and the need to just curl up in the corner and cry, it’s really hard to do that.
So, what am I going to do? Well, I’m going to try… TRY MY UTMOST BEST… to keep things compartmentalized. I’m there to fulfill a certain role, do a duty, take a step forward toward my dream career. All this side stuff… it ain’t why I’m there.
#2 Work ethic jungle
Like what is happening, what’s going on. Oh that thing that I’m getting in trouble for not doing and yet knew nothing about. It’d be nice to know, but you know… No one knows. Ever. It’s like a jungle in there, making it one day at a time without someone blaming you for something you may or may not have been in charge of.
It’d also be nice if we don’t forget any kids in this process. But, YOU NEVER KNOW.
#3 Early mornings
Okay, this is probably going to be the HARDEST part of going back to work. I love being able to sleep in until 11. It’s so nice. The sheets are like mountains of comfort and love. The smell of coffee without the panic of having to be somewhere 5 minutes ago. I’m going to miss that.
Overall, I’m pretty happy to be going back. But I’ll have to brace myself for the long haul because it’s another month and a half until Mid-Winter break and 3 months until Spring Break. Bismillah!
