A Case of the Mondays

Day 46. 149 pages, 72,102 words.

Ugh, back to work. One of the first times after a holiday I didn’t actually feel like going back. It’s not that I usually want to go back to work, not that I wouldn’t rather stay on holiday, but yeah, I’ve usually been okay with it. I know, you’re not supposed to enjoy working. That’s why it’s work. That’s why they pay you to do it. It’s just that I don’t usually drag myself out of bed, slump over to the computer, and feel generally shitty about having to deal with this. It’s not that I don’t like holidays – it’s that I also like my work.

I do a job that I enjoy. Or I did, once.

Now? Now I’m not sure. I just know that I’m sick and tired of all the bullshit I have to put up with. It isn’t more important than my life, and it shouldn’t affect the way I feel in anything but a positive way.

Is it anywhere near as bad as the way I used to feel when I got up in the morning to go and work in the factory? No. But is it heading that way? Maybe. I don’t know. Maybe I’m just going through a miserable patch. Crappy weather, failure to get out of the house and walk, an assortment of other pressures. Unmotivated. Generally discouraged and slumping.

My latest Amazon review for Eejit[1] was nice, though. Five stars and accompanied by the simple text “Andrew Hindle = the man.”

[1] I seem to get way more reviews and sales for Eejit than the other books. I guess that’s good, as long as people are reading the first book in the series there’s a reasonable chance they’ll go on and read the others. People just run out of steam. I understand that all too well today.

Not sure who “jod” is, but it was much appreciated.

I know, this (and just about every post for the past week or two) is an interlude and I need to get back to The Final Feast. I’m focussing on the book right now.

  1. Wow don’t I ever know exactly… this. Except for the book review/sales part, I mean the job part. I want to say things’ll get better but instead I’ll just leave this randomly relevant link here.

    Ugh, hang in there, man. I know just what it feels like for a job to just not feel right anymore.
