Here’s what happened in my life over the past week:
- A big thank you to Anxiouschristiangirl97 for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award! Kim of Kim’s Blog also nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award – thank you!!! Makes sure to check out both of these lovely bloggers if you haven’t already.
- I worked 5 nights this week. There was definitely a corresponding drop in my mood. There have been several crying episodes, but that’s been going on all month. The guinea pigs are highly unimpressed with this change in their routine.
- What with all the working I’ve haven’t had as much time for blogging and other writing, and what I have done has been in a haze of even worse than usual concentration.
I need to rant a bit about work. I only work night shifts, which end at 7am. Day shift starts at 6:35, and change of shift report is supposed to happen at 6:45. Except the day staff don’t come to work on time. They’ve gotten more and more entitled about it, and the lateness is getting worse, and showing up at 7:00 isn’t uncommon. The new full-time night staff that I work with has only been doing the job for 2 weeks, and has frequently had to stay late because of people coming in late.
So far no one has wanted to be the bad guy and rat people out, but finally this week I decided fuck it, I’m prepared to be that person everyone hates, because it’s just gotten ridiculous. And better for me to be public enemy #1 than the regular staff person. Unsurprisingly, people are not happy with me, because being on time for work is some massive imposition. The other day someone was lecturing me on how I shouldn’t have reported her being late. Um, fairly obvious remedy here – get your ass to work on time like most normal responsible adults in this world do! So now you could cut the tension in the room with a knife when I’m giving change of shift report
I’m back again for another 4 shifts next week. Maybe I should make a late shift police badge and start waving it in people’s faces when they act like I’m the devil incarnate. No more free pass, bitches!
As a guest on my blog this week, I had Natasha of Mental Health & Me, who did an emerging blogger post Saying Goodbye to My Toxic ‘Friend’ – An Anorexia Nervosa Recovery Story.
How has your week been?
