It’s Friday night! Just got paid….

It’s FRIDAY!!!! WOOOOHOOOOOO!!! I felt like this week was never going to end. Even today has been dragging on and on and on. But soon (as in 5 hours) I will get leave and hopefully sleep for the entire weekend. I know, I’m so boring but I really need the rest. Me and sleep haven’t been getting along lately, but I’m hoping this weekend we can reconnect our once blissful relationship.

Beside the fire, nothing really exciting happened to me this week. I’ve been really busy at work. Which is good I guess, but it’s also really starting to piss me off. I work with a team of people, and I have more work than all of them combined!!! It should be the other way around, because I’m still relatively new and some of these other people have been here for a few years. But my boss keeps on giving me more and more work. Yes, I know that this shows that I’m a good employee and he trusts me to get it done blah blah blah. It angers me though that my fellow employees do not do their job well that I in return get punished for their problems. There is this one girl in particular that I just know (hope) will get fired soon. My boss hasn’t given her any work in the past month! When I ask him why, he tells me that she is way to busy to complete it. I gently remind him that I have triple the work than her, and all he says is “I know… but I also know that you can handle it and get it done” Which is a really nice complement, but COME ON! All I want to do is quit this job, and my boss giving me more work than everyone else does not help the situation. I swear her just gave me 4 more jobs this morning and the other girl nothing!

I should maybe break down my job a little. I am a media assistant and basically my job is to place ads in newspapers across the country. Each order I get to place ads by different client is called a job and in each job the ads I will be placing are called an insertion orders (IO). So from now on when I talk about my job, I can just use these terms. So when I say that in the next two weeks I have 500 insertion orders, you will know what I mean. P.S. that girl I told you about only have 68 for the next two weeks! So you can see how inundated I am right now with work. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and hopefully things will start changing for my career and me soon!

I think you need to whoop it up a little this weekend. Have some fun. Though sleep is good too.
