There’s something about this week that makes it feel like it’s lasting forever. After having the Fourth of July off, I came back to work on Tuesday. You would think that because of the three day weekend, the following days would go by fast. You’d be wrong though. The week is dragging.
I spent all of Wednesday feeling like it was Thursday. I was convinced that the next day was Friday and pay day. It wasn’t until almost 9 o’clock at night when my friend mentioned the day of the week that it clicked. I was disappointed, to say the least.
I don’t know what to do when the week is dragging. How do I make time fly by at work? Staying busy is the obvious answer, but there’s only so much work for me to do. Most of my time is spent at a desk waiting for the phone to ring. Using the time to catch up on a book is could also work, except I get so bored before I start reading that I can’t read. It’s like getting into a slump—once I’m bored, I’m bored. It takes a great force to get me out of it. In this case, an unexpected workload, talking to friends, or making a computer delivery. Basically anything that gets me moving or smiling.
It’s like Newton’s first Law of Motion—a bored Kelly will stay bored unless acted upon by a great force.
(I’ve been spending too much time around Physicists.)
I shouldn’t be complaining though. Out of almost five weeks of work, I’ve only had one bad day. I’m also thanking my lucky stars that I haven’t gotten yelled at for wearing dresses and sandals to work.
Until next time,
