I’ve got tons of things in my life that I’m excited about. Riding, writing, drawing, friends, lovers (well, okay, lover…the wife…but I’m still excited). Unfortunately, work…my career…takes up the majority of my time. Yeah, we all have to work for a living. I’d just like to be able to devote more time to the things I care about.
That used to be what I did…Yes, I’ve got to earn a living…but I found something I cared about to do to earn that living. Passion in all things, you see? That’s the only way you can be good at what you do.
But now? They’ve told me my job is ending and I’ll have to apply for a new one. They’ve not told me when. They’ve not posted any jobs to apply for. They’ve missed that deadline twice, and now, with the last missed one…have not even bothered to say, “Oops.” and announce a new one. Nothing. Nada. Zip.
It’s frustrating, and since our organization is in disarray…there is no long-term plan. There is no plan at all. They’ve been dragging this out for months.
Here we sit…minor fixes, maintenance stuff, and waiting for the other shoe to drop. Bored beyond belief.
I used to care so much about what I do…I really need to care about it again.
Drop the goddamn shoe already.
