Disliking Your Job

angryI woke up this morning and like most mornings lately I am exhausted. I am having a real hard time getting to sleep at night and I’m not sure what is going on. I used to be able to fall asleep like a baby.

I do have a general idea of the reason behind it and it starts and ends with my job. I started working at this new firm a few months ago and my stress levels are at an all time high. I try not to bring my work home with me but that is easier said than done a lot of time.

I have been thinking about buying some cbd oil online to help me sleep. My friend Emily recommended I start taking it. She takes it for pain relief herself. A few months ago she got rear ended by a truck while sitting at a stop light. Her back has been messed up ever since even after multiple trips to the chiropractor. She said taking cbd oil has been a lifesaver for her.

I think getting back into the gym will help me out too. I sort of stopped going when I started my new job. I was just so mentally exhausted when I started that I had no energy to go after work. I did still go on the weekends in the beginning but that slowly started to go by the wayside too. It is just so much pressure at my job to perform and stand out from everyone else. It is the only way you move up there and everyone is gunning for it.
I have one sort of work friend there named Mark. He started about a year before me. He sits by me so naturally we have started to talk.
He told me just to keep at it and eventually the power that be will take notice. He’s already gotten three bumps in pay since he has been there so that is encouraging. I could use a nice bump myself as money and my lack of it is something else I am always stressing out over. The rent where I’m living at now just went up $150 which is quite a lot. It almost made me decide to move. I actually looked around and didn’t really see anywhere worth moving to so I decided to stay put. The whole process of moving stresses me out so much that I would have had to find a really nice affordable place to even consider it.
I guess I’m going to go get some more coffee so I can get on about my day without being a complete zombie. I have a couple of things I want to get done today then am hoping to be back in time to watch the World Series game. I’m not a big baseball fan but I am rooting for the Dodgers. Boston wins all the time between the Patriots and Bruins too and even the Celtics this year look really good.
My car needs an oil change and while I’m there I guess I’ll ask them about getting some winter tires put on. I remember last year when it snowed I had a hard time getting around. I don’t want to deal with that again especially going to work. I have a 40 minute commute in the mornings now which will be over an hour when it snows I’m sure. The last thing I need is to be stressing out about getting there on time. I’ll have to see what they say. I also need to get some groceries as my fridge is bare bones at the moment.
