It's Alright To Be Lazy At Work...Yeah, Right!!

It's been a while since I have written. I have had my nose stuck in books for a few weeks, and I guess I just let time run away from me again.

My manager at work told me yesterday that I shouldn't rush at my job or worry over every little thing...that everything will get done as it does, and it doesn't matter if it doesn't. What kind of attitude is that for a manager to take? I am not angry, but seriously, I am not lazy at work either. I like to have the job finished before the owner comes in at 4:30 in the afternoon to take over. I like knowing that I am doing all I can to make sure that the job is done properly. I want a raise and consideration for more later on because of my job performance...what can I say.

I also like to get finished so I can sit arounda and read for the last hour or two of work...makes it interesting.

I can't wait to get this day over with. The weekend looks like it will be a nice one. I am looking forward to getting the opportunity to walk in the park and look at the changing leaves. It's so beautiful, it wrenches at my heart.

I found out the other day, that my insurance plans at work also include vision coverage, so I am going to set it up so that I can go to the eye doctor soon...this is nice, because I won't have to pay huge sums of money to see...lol I also have to start making other appointments for other exams soon too. It seems that I have been getting sick a lot over the past few months, and I want to see if it's due to stress, or from the chemicals at work.

I have never been sick when working in this business before...at least at other companies, but this one doesn't take care of it's equipment, and you can smell the chemical cleaner all over the place...one of our new employees had to quit because it gave him headaches and nose bleeds...he isn't used to that anyway, but if he had been with another company, that wouldn't have happened.

I am contemplating taking my five day vacation soon. I am not sure what I want to do with it, but I want to get away from everything and everyone here soon. I just need to breathe and not feel like I have to go to work, or whatever. I am tired of being around people constantly. I wouldn't mind slowing down, and spending time away.

I applied for a part-time job at this little books store down the street from where I work, called Amethyst Books and Gifts. They don't need help right now, but they also asked if I was willing to dress up in Faery garb once in a while during their festivals, and I said I could try. I don't do theatrics, but it would be fun to dress up and be around people just to be around them....of course, I wouldn't mind working for this place either. It is a New Age style store that caters to many different types of peoples. The incense is so soothing when you go in. If anything, working there would pay for all the lovely things that I want there....lol
