I just want to be inspired. Everyday. I want to work at job that inspires me everyday, non-stop. A place I’m not going to dread waking up for, or hate stepping into. As of late that’s all I’ve been feeling.
I work in a gift store, where they sell practical everyday items with an extra quirky, bright twist to it. I’m starting to dislike it more and more every single time I step into it. This is my rebound job from my old job, which I also hated. I have myself to blame, but I thought it was going to fun and something I can tolerate for ONE year… it’s been 9 months! I’ve been disliking this place for the past… five?
It can get so boring working there and there are days where there really isn’t anything to be done, and no customers are walking into the store, so we’re left there doing nothing, TRYING to make it seem as if we’re busy doing SOMETHING. I’m also sick of helping people pick out fucking presents for their granddaughters, and friends, or son, or for someone’s birthday party. I’m so sick of it!
I don’t have motivation either to be promoted there, I’m just slowly getting over it… quickly actually. I’m sick of being bored at work. I have so much potential to do something more, and I WANT TO BE CHALLENGED AND INSPIRED. Work is not a place where I want to just sit down, doing nothing, I want to work, I enjoy it. I’ve been working since 15 years of age. I know enough to be challenged at this point.
I’ve been looking non-stop on craigslist, internship websites, stores, etc for jobs. I’ve been applying like a lunatic for the past two days now. I really hope I can find a place where I’m inspired everyday. I don’t want to just be inspired by everything else BUT my job. I want my job ALONG with my everyday inspirations to inspire me.
