Much has happened in 2009 already… I still have no resolution by the way. I’ve been spending ample time with
I must admit I’ve somewhat neglected to see my Grandma as much as I had in the past. The weekends are spend on the slopes for me and the weeknights have been lazy. Not to mention an aunt is visiting right now and therefore she isn’t alone. She’s been negative and drowning in self pity since my grandpa passed away and instead of trying to help herself she just feeds her depression by insulting everyone else and being unhappy with all of our lives… being the case, I’ve avoided her probably almost subconsciously.
Work has turned from ok to miserable. I’m bored, under challenged and unfortunately surrounded by people I don’t completely care for. I no longer can say I like the culture as I believe its true colors have only shown since December. At first I was infatuated with the climate… it was warm and friendly in comparison to the corporate culture you usually are surrounded with in finance. Well was I wrong… instead of being rewarded for our solidarity and ability to take relationships beyond formal office banter (without slipping tongue or a hand down each other’s pants) we were all reprimanded for being friendly. I don’t understand this at all… it seemed things got out of hand when they heard laughter in the hallways and social luncheons that are just not common amongst accountants and they had to put an end to it. Additionally, I work with a bunch of slackers and being a bit of an overachiever myself, I cannot tolerate it. And FINALLY, I feel bored… I know I can do more and better work than this tedious crap I’m subjected to as of late.
On the plus side, I’ve come to understand how much I love
2009 will be an interesting year indeed. I hope it works itself out well and I hope that hard work and determination pay off. I hope that relationships are mended and I hope that lives are improved. My own life has taken dramatic turns in the past 22 days… as has our countries. I’m sure each and every one of us will be fighting our own battles this year and I wish us all luck.
