Work Junk

So im in such a bad mood today and the past few days. Maybe because I spent my "vacation" with family and feeling sick while I was there. It wasn't much of a vacation anyways, too short and too much packed in the few days.

But now I am back to reality and I feel I've gotten a better look at what I do day-to-day...and I don't like it.

I know I have been unhappy with work for a while now, but before I figured... too bad, deal with it. Since it really is a "too good to be true" situation since they pay for my school and the bills. And it's only for one more year.

But now. . . things are so up in the air whether we will even have funding in the Fall and I am no longer learning anything here and gaining any sort of experience. I feel very much stuck in a rut.

So I've been thinking alot about other options. My boss said already that it might be a good idea for us to look for jobs, just in case. And I am definitely not happy here anymore with the work situation and so many other things.

The problem is I start my internship in the Fall for 1 year, so I don't want anything that will require too much of my focus. I am playing with the idea of being a preschool teacher? Or substitute? I also am thinking about applying for some of the jobs similar to mine, since they dont have hiring freezes and I could just "transfer" departments. But my boss has said she'd be flexible with us and our internship but is it worth being miserable?

Oh... the decisions...

    Not sure what the work problems are for you. It is tough to weigh the decision of being miserable at a job and sticking it out. Sometimes it is better to move on, being happy at what you do is a major bonus with a job. Maybe if your boss will be flexible you could try out another job also to see if you would be happier there before cutting your ties in the current position.

    Wish you all the best. Tough decision to try to make.
