Recap

Ah... things are running a bit too smoothly for me - work, that is, but still waaaayyy too voluminous - especially after the lousy quarterly meetings mentioned two posts back. One good thing that really made my day (that day) was that the President (and others, in fact) is very pleased with my first-ever-self-compiled magazine. Thank goodness! - all I had was three perpetually-interrupted weeks to work on it. Frankly, if I had more time, I would be more satisfied with the outcome. The creative team that did this was not very... accommodating. Thus I have been seeking other services, demanding qualities of this and that like a snoot on steroids. If not for the budget constraints I have to work with, my choice vendor/supplier will be a few steps closer to early retirement.

Oh... something just bothered my mind: I have yet to receive my confirmation letter for my appointment - my probation period has lapsed almost a month ago - even though I have emailed the HR. Oh well, if there ain't gonna be that minor raise then I won't give a damn.

Back to the track. After that meeting, I know my boss had a difficult time. I can tell, even when being absent from it. So come Monday (the meeting was on a Saturday), I called him up to gather what we were supposed to discuss on - because our meeting hour was snatched by another big shot - and also to vent my exasperations. Sometimes, I do not know who really is my boss. Him? Him? Him?

It is no wonder that they (other than my direct boss) have mistaken me for someone else. I am me, take a closer look. Hello, I am NOT that fellow who left. Since I stepped in I have spent half the time trying to... hmm, turn his Shakespeare into The Archies, i.e. make his highly unnecessarily sophisticated procedures and protocols more digestible. And it's no a few hours' or a day's challenge - it's almost a week's toil just doing that for ONE friggin' category!

Also, I am only helping out the other board's concerns and what-nots because no one else wants to or can take charge of it. My other colleagues do not possess the experience to utter on behalf of such matters; one started really late in the organisation, the other never did, and the other one... he is mashed potato to me. And with an attitude that he has, he is tarnishing the standard of service as expected of a staff based in Central region. I am eschewing on how in God's name he made fulltime. When you offer too much grace to one person, you risk losing the respect you get from others.

So how can things go smoothly for me? I just do my thing and pretend to listen to them.

Okay. Enough bitching about others. I tend to digress.

My boss was shocked that I have that many tasks in the office. At least now he understands why I cannot fully commit to my real tasks. He told me he has requested for a revision on the employment in the office. All I hear after that from the office was: Don't pressure yourself too much.

What?! I do not, I repeat, I do not pressure myself in work matters. They, of minds too devolved to conceive how tangled up things are in the office and yet continue to expect so much to be done in so short a time, do.

That ain't the worst. Somebody is trying to induce willingness for outside-office-hours' involvements. I beg your pardon, for unlike you that you have eased alot of burdens and possibly feel that your life is starting to slow down and wish to satisfy some self-actualisation, count me out. Mine is just at beginning. I will absolutely not bring work home, be on your beck-and-call, nor allow anything to derail me from living the life as I see fit.

I love this job, but I do not necessarily like every task that comes along, or the people associated with it.
