Day Job Madness

Being employed at the same company/organization for more than fifteen years can become very mundane.  One can easily find themselves loathing said job and not due to the job itself but the people who can make your job a living hell from coworkers to management who simply put could not comprehend your job at all but can easily dictate and or add on to your already hectic duties.

I, for one love what I do and do it with pride but have found myself lately trying to figure out why I even bother.  No one appreciates your work, or even recognizes your worth but then expect you to take everything they toss at you in stride with little complaints and without the proper training. Being grateful to have a job these days comes with a price. Your peace of mind and very little pay but then you must still be grateful.  

You sit idly by as others get hired for positions suited for you, with basically no knowledge of how the company runs and they again pile on the workload while others are even approved for overtime and you scurry through a day trying to resolve all issues tossed your way in a seven hour shift. I am just about done being a mat. I would prefer to be home doing something I truly love a hell of a lot more but we need to pay bills.

I would like to say my goal of being a success with my writing career is close but I can't.  This is a time consuming process and I am just at the beginning stages of it but hope to be where I need to be soon. Nothing would make my life fully complete until it is and I can then say the words I've been wanting to say to my day job heads for the past three years.  At this point, I would keep that phrase to self as there are some spies among us and one can never be too careful but my day will soon come so till then, peace...

Quote of the Day Author Jim Rohn

“You must constantly ask yourself these questions: Who am I around? What are they doing to me? What have they got me reading? What have they got me saying? Where do they have me going? What do they have me thinking? And most important, what do they have me becoming? Then ask yourself the big question: Is that okay? Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.”

Trump Presidential Candidate 2016

When they say a picture says a thousand words, this one is totally on point.  I am not into politics but the possibility of this man becoming our next president surely scares me and it should you too if you took the time to research him and or follow him on social media you know the reason why.

The man is undoubtedly an egotistical moron and God help us all if he becomes our next President. The following link demonstrates my many reasons for not being fooled into thinking he is the next best thing, This country is in shambles as is and having someone like this in office will certainly make things a lot worse.

This of course is my opinion and I do not want this to turn ugly so lets just be the adults we are, share your opinion if you'd like and feel free to not hold back.  All I ask is that you keep it respectful. Thank you,

Quote of the day!


“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”
– Steve Jobs

To Live & Love Again Excerpt

The following is an excerpt published in Hub pages for one of my current WIP's.  I have expressed to many how I have a habit of starting one and then jumping onto another once a new idea pops to mind. As a writer that is great as the stories continue to flourish but staying on track and finally completing one has been my downfall since the start.

This one I particularly started writing in 2009 and I lost about five chapters worth of it when the flash drive I stored it in was mysteriously wiped out.  Thankfully I was able to recover it and start anew but in between I have ventured into book review writing and taking minutes at day jobs union delegate meetings so having the time to fulfill all and finally submit for publishing has eluded me.

I am hoping to break that barrier this year, well actually scratch that, I intend to,  My name certainly deserves to be featured as an author to an actual full fledged novel and grateful for the opportunity.
