And not the good kind of funky either, I'm afraid.
Work is still nothing short of Hell at the moment. I love how at work, they talk about not bringin' your personal issues with you to the office, but they don't seem to care if work issues are spilling over into your personal life.
I also know I've read plenty of “how to improve your blog” posts that say don't apologize for not posting.
Well fie on you.
First, I do want to apologize for my lack of posting. I know I gave all of you a heads up, but I still don't like knowing I'm slackin' here right now. I'm going to ease back into the routine this week and be back to my regular posting schedule next week. I tell you this so you know what to expect. I feel that I should let you know in case you are wondering or concerned that I'll disappear. (We've all seen that happen too much lately, afterall.) I also want to say that I will be back to my normal schedule of posting next week because it will help me pull outta this funk.
As I said before, work is still just… ugh. (Ramble incoming) So, I haven't played WoW in 2 weeks now, and I probably won't log back into it until this weekend. I planned to go on for a bit last weekend, but just wasn't feeling it.
But I am not burnt out of WoW.
I just want to make that clear. This work crap is weighing on me a lot and stressing me out. If anything, I'm burnt out of my RL profession right now. Unfortunately, that's a lot harder to cancel my subscription to. My workload has increased due to my supervisor being let go and another staff member having just left for a 3 month leave. The interim supervisor and myself have found even more “mess” to take care of and try to straighten out…. while trying to keep things operating AND get everyone's performance up.
As you might imagine, this has piled a lot of work and stress upon my shoulders (and believe me, my back is feelin' it). Granted, with the economy as it is right now, I am thankful to have a job… I just can also see some more “cuts” on the horizon that won't make things any better workload-wise or morale-wise. So, this has spilled over into my personal time. A few nights of staying a bit later than usual… more calls to my cell phone after hours (as well as bombarded more frequently when I'm at my desk)… which leads to me not feeling like dealing with anyone or anything when I get home.
And this sucks, because it is sucking my enjoyment out of things simply by affecting my mood. I don't want to inflict gchat with my crappy mood (or deal with potential drama if something is goin' down). I just want to “be.” Which, of course, has also affected my muse for writing and posting. (Damn you muse, you fickle mistress.) When I'm in a funk, I tend to do a bit of isolation until things smooth out again.
The funk is still here, and probably will be for a bit. However, it's not quite as bad as it was last week. Some of my extra workload will be lifted from my shoulders by next week as well (not all, of course, but enough) as I work on getting the interim supervisor up to speed on our daily operations and whatnot.
Thank you for your patience. Your regular entertainment shall return shortly. 😉
