I LOVE the organization I work for, & I enjoy my job in it as well, but I knew going in to it, that my particular position would bore me & that once I passed my probation I would want more. Well, I’m passed my probation, & I DO want more, but I don’t know where to go. I’ve applied for a 1-1 position but I don’t really want it. I’ve also applied for a position for spring break that I REALLLLLY want. It’s working with at-risk youth (my favourite). I wish it was an all year job, but all I can hope is it opens more doors for me if I get it. That’s more the job I want with this organization….
We took the kids at work on a field trip today, & while I was walking 1 boy to get water I saw a coworker from my old company! I immediately gave him a hug & chatted for a bit while the boy got his own water. Then on the way back with the boy we had a cute discussion
Boy: Who was that guy?
Me: That was my old coworker from the company I used to work for.
Boy: Oh. I’m glad you work with is now!
I think it’s bullshit that I’m made to feel like crap when I come home from a long day of work & just want 5mins of cuddles, or even attention, because I’m being “too needy”. Excuse me for having a fucking difficult job where I work with kids who are having a tough time & take it out on me & just needing someone to actually give a crap about me when I get home… Fucking, put the video game down for 5mins! Or ask me how the day went & actually listen to the answer. Or don’t get mad at me if, while I’m helping clean up after family dinner, I hug you ‘cause I haven’t had my down time yet… Fuck. Be a less selfish jerk
