Grumble

I'm a grumbly woman today, so fair warning.

This week I have to get up and be at work at 5.30 in the morning. The reason.. the company I support is in New Zealand and they are two hours behind Sydney. This means, if I want to get 8 hours sleep a night, I have to be in bed by 8.30. This does not tend to happen. I seem to be incapable of getting to bed at that time, earliest I can manage is 9.00. The result.... one grumbly sleep deprived woman.
Also, it doesn't help that I am in a dead end help desk job. I do get to do back up team leading jobs from time to time, but none of the team leaders look like leaving any time in the near future, so most of the time I am on the phones. Yes, I do want to leave, have wanted to leave for a while. But.. I have no uni qualifications, and my past jobs have all been in customer service. So, if I left here, I would be pretty much getting the same sort of job, except I'd have even less chance of promotion, being the new person, so there seems no point to leave.

Is it safe to come out of hiding yet? Is the grumbling done? :)

Perhaps you should be rude to some customers, and get it out of your system that way??
Being escorted out of the office will make a great story for the blog!

Maybe try a TAFE course in something or other to bolster the resume a bit? Good chance to change your career direction as well :)

Hi guys, thanks for the comments, sorry for being so grumbly.

Um.. Brian, I don't think you want me to be escorted from the office, there is the little matter of the mortgage to pay? hehe

Daffy, it's hard to know which direction I want to go in at the moment, I am about to finish a uni subject that I've done online, will see how I go in that, decide if I want to do a Bachelor of Arts...

Muppet, yeah, grumbly bear has gone back into the cave, should be more positive postings now
