It just does. We all have jobs (yes…wiping poopy diapers is a job, too!). We all have moments where we want to take our jobs and shove them in a hole, bury them, cover them with dog doo, and park a car on top.
Well, blogging I love It’s AweSome! But, it is also a job. So…let’s have a discussion about jobs, shall we. See if you can relate to any of these “blogger” woes?
1. Staring at the computer so long you name it.
Mine is Della. She’s lovely. Except when she is being a piece of work and I need to take her to the Dell hospital. And then the Dell Doctor doesn’t know how to fix her and gives her back broken. I bandage her up and we limp along. Sooner or later I’ll replace Della. I’m thinking I would love a guy this time. Probably from Mac’s family. I hear that’s a nice, friendly family.
2. Working on a project only to realize…you screwed it up.
This happens more often then I would like. Lucky me…I still post it. Bad you…you still read it. Ha! Sometimes…sometimes…it’s a do-over. Or a scratch that and try something else.
3. Stuck! You work hard, you work well, you work fast but it’s taking you…
the same place you were last month, and the month before. Seriously…I think I’ve seen that rock before. And that tree. Are we going in circles?
4. Oh crap…I have a deadline coming up…I better work tonight!
And tomorrow night, and early tomorrow (who needs coffee), and instead of working out.
5. Why clean your work station? Or desk. Or whatever you use.
Kind of like what your kids say about making their bed…”I’m going to mess it up anyways!”. It’s true about my work area. Why the heck should I bother cleaning it…I’ll be right back in it again within hours. Or minutes. I just assume everything on the lower half of the pile I don’t need and can trash it. Let’s stick some stuff in a box and go through it later (of course later never comes).
6. You respond to one e-mail only to find…a phone call and 3 new messages.
You have those kind of days too?? Geesh. How can a person get through the to-do list if the to-do list miraculously grows?? Right before my eyes it expands. It’s magic. Of the worst sort.
7. Doesn’t matter if you are “feeling it” it has to get done…fake it!
Ha…that could be applied to many things. Naughty. But, we are talking about that day when you don’t want to. You just don’t want to work. You’re not feeling good at the job you are supposed to be good at. You don’t feel creative enough to be creative. Not talented enough to pull out the paper that needs to be written. Not anything. You just don’t “feel” it.
How about you?
Can you add to the list?
Blogging complaints, work complaints, mommy complaints…whatever is your “job”.
P.S. You still have to work/mommy/daddy…whatever. And, you don’t get to be cranky all the time. Suck it up. Works is work. That’s why it’s called…”work”. Ha!
But, for today…go ahead and leave a comment adding to the venting list. Keep it clean, funny, and light. And for goodness sakes…don’t name names!
My friend from A Nest for all Seasons is doing a fun series about being “fed up”. She got me thinking about it. I’ll be joining her…check out other “fed up” goodness over there!
