the massive amounts of snow and instead bitch about work, which incidentally is also crappy due to the massive amounts of snow *sigh*
OK, here is the work bitch. I work hard, really, really, hard. I am a really good employee and do whatever is asked of me, happily, I also live under the belief that I do what I do to help our students get a better life, to become well educated and to be successful in the endeavors.
Therefore it really irks the crap out of me when I am passed over for a promotion for my boss's friend, who is very qualified and a good worker, etc. but who has not been with our program as long. It was a huge slap in the face, and it destroyed my ego for a few days, and then I got over it, buckled down and got back to work. I will keep working, keep doing my job, keep taking the shit I am given for one simple reason....I need the income and I like my job working with students, plus the fact that they pay for my doctorate. I will not, however, forget what has transpired and will be making some career moves in the next few years since I feel I have nowhere left to move into. Work can suck it sometimes.
