Had a strange dream this morning - something about work and/or school, and trying to leave... but not being able to. Gee, I wonder what that's all about, eh?
Oh wait, I remember.. I was trying to leave, but there was a dog in the way.. made it difficult. I did it eventually, though. Pretty obvious symbolism.
Got up and to work a few minutes early. Had to reset my password, couldn't get to my email or shares. Caught up on all the emails, and had a few things to do from those. I've done some of them, with one big one and a small one or two left. Bleh. Had an email from the boss saying I had to use my vacation time for any further time off... By my estimation, I've taken 11 of the 16 days of overtime I worked. I'm contemplating going to the big boss and saying something to the effect of "Look, I worked 16 days overtime and only got 11 back. If this is going to be the case, I'm not going to work more than 55 hours a week for this current project. That's about 2/3 in either case." and see what happens.
I'm going to start looking for somewhere else to work. I really don't mind taking a pay cut if it helps my sanity. FedEx or similar labor work seems very attractive - like Office Space. Yes, I've got a bad attitude towards the current work thing. I also feel justified in that I've been screwed over enough times that I'm tired of dealing with it.
My vacation really helped. It was exactly what I needed to regain my sanity and composure. I was even pretty chipper walking into work today. As soon as I got into the email, though, I realized all the same crap was going on. I realized why I needed to get out for a bit, and the suckage that is ahead.
Anyway, I'm going to attempt to hold off on the 2 week notice thing for now. See if I can get myself ahead of this crap instead, or at least have an alternate job lined up.
