Should I Look For A New Job?
 
So I decided to keep sticking this job out being here almost 9 months now. Everyday has not been like this at work, I don't know if I hate what I do, I definitely don't get any satisfaction, other than talking to workers about non-work related things. (my weaknesses in this career is not being detailed enough and not prioritizing tasks(boss tells me to slow down), besides that my rent is getting paid and I have some spending money.

When I started the occupational safety and health program at college I found it interesting. I even would let my roommates know what we discussed in class. The only two classes in my program I disliked the most was risk and insurance, and system safety. At the end of the two years from being in the program couple months before graduation, I began to feel irritated from the assignments and lost interest and started to doubt myself.

I woke up today wanting to get a new car and generally in a great mood, I went to the gym and when I got back work was 2 hours away, I started to dwell and over think about work and whether I like it or not as it relates to interest, and even worrying if I meet a girl and how i would handle overthinking my career before going to work would affect the relationship.

When I got to work I was not in a good mood and could not put a smile on when co-workers were greeting me, I had to go into the supply room and take a breather. After I went in there, I could not sit at my desk to work on anything I just did not feel like being at work, so I decided I need to get outside and go on a inspection.

I spoke to one of close workers at first I still felt awkward as I know I just not feeling it, and I just tried my best to turn things around until I found out he liked watching Japanese animation and I did too so that changed my mood a little bit. When I got back to my desk feeling little better, I saw my boss come in and was just quiet and tried to keep myself busy to stop overthinking when she spoke to me if I would be in trouble. After she left and now I'm alone in the office since I work nights, I feel more relaxed and relieved.


I have been making repeated small detail mistakes on emails and paperwork. Last night she spoke to me regarding CC day shift to on items, last night after I followed up via email on inspection I even reviewed it to make sure it makes sense and spelled correctly, the issue I didn't know until she pointed it via email this morning that I forgot to include the dayshift plant managers.

I definitely noticed I do jump from interest to interest without mastering the skill, like piano, guitar. started to plant peppers and I love spicy foods, but seeds wouldn't grow so I procrastinated that. I had a period of wanting to improve my stereo system since I love music and drive with music everywhere I go, but I don't want to become deaf from subwoofers and the cost, so I put that off.

I tried Concerta/Adderal of all doses and I just feel amped, and want to seek conversations.

Everyone has bad days at work though, I wouldn't worry about it, tomorrow is another day.

Also, continuing to dwell on every little flaw and mistake will only inhibit your job performance at work believe it or not and these mistakes stay fresh in the minds of your coworkers as well and they'll use it against you, I used to get really bad anxiety but you really have to work at learning to just let some things go, worrying only makes the situation worse.

I never had a problem with my coworkers, it was my crazy boss. I found out later that no one could believe I lasted there as long as I did.
