Job fatigue.

 

I've been in this industry for going on 26 years now. 8 in uniform and 18 with my company.

 

I don't hate the job and I don't plan on leaving it. I enjoy the hell out of it for the most part. I haven't stagnated, growing from an analyst 18 years ago to management and running several large programs at the same time. Fun for the most part.

... pondering this a bit tonight. Music. I'd try classical, but it's your head not mine;)

 

 

Bouncing between Kendrick Lamar, Anderson .Paak & ATCQ.

 

Not working yet, but it's early days.

I'm on a roll.

The two gas heaters in our rental property have failed :|

Seehund, sounds like you need a looooong break. Any chance of long service leave?

 

Had my second bite at long-service last year & went to Europe for 6 weeks. I could do with another break soon but nothing planned/available until January - 2 weeks in NZ. There's sadly too much to get done here and too few people to do it.

 

Woe is moi.

I'm in a very niche area with hard to find skill and experience sets. We're only ever going to experience increased demand for our services as the available pool to draw from for new employees is shrinking.

 

I guess I'm just in a slump; but it's not an easy slump to crawl out of.

 

Almost feels Hari Seldon Crisis-ish.

 

I took the day off yesterday as a "mental health day" and now I'm back in the office I actually feel worse.

 

Stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid customers don't help either.

Why does my job have to be so fucking difficult these days?
