I need a better job. OCC is eating my soul. I don't want any more dreams of callers dissapearing and me waking up looking for my headset. I don't want to fill my lj with stories of work because there is nothing else in my life BUT work. I don't like not caring about things because it's the only way I can make it through my day.

I need a change.

But I also need a job that will give me health insurance and pay my bills.

I really, really, REALLY hate working at gopher state. Maybe it's just the stress I've been under. Maybe it's because we've been so busy. Or maybe it's just because the job sucks big hairy goat balls. Either way, I really don't want to work here anymore.

I've started to look on line, and I'm thinking I should crack down and post my resume on Monster.com. I just want something different, something that doesn't involve me having to talk to idiots ever day for 8+ hours. I think I could manage talking to idiots for maybe 4 hours, but no more.

I would like a job that gives me some kind of task that makes me think. Let me organize, let me write, let me file, let me do anything but sit at my desk for 8 hours asking the same questions over and over again.

So while I'm looking, if anybody out there has any job leads, give me a holler. I have a degree in English, 4 years experience in social organizing and 6 months of data entry. I'm proficient in MS office, adobe photoshop, and I can dabble with quark. I work well both in group settings and on my own. I enjoy being challeneged.

Anyways, I need to make some dinner and work on packing. This will be a busy busy weekend.
My approach to a similar problem was to start my little, uh, side gig. Seriously. Yes, it's a second job and i have to treat it that way if I want to get anywhere with it, but at the same time, it's something I'm doing totally for me, and I can choose who I want to talk to and when I want to talk to them. And I don't have a boss. :)

It's improved my outlook on my day job. Really.

Oh, Megera. You just described my qualifications and look where I'm working. Times is tough all over, man.

Weren't you going to post moving details on your blog?

I would quit. give your 2 weeks. take a month off. collect unemployment. find a good job. -just me...
