This week for the writer’s workshop I am going to write about number two: which is nine things I would rather be doing today. Let’s see what the nine things are that come to my mind first.
Reading Books-I would love to be able to read books that I get more control over when it comes to picking them out.
Watching my favorite TV shows
Binging on YouTube videos
I would rather be on vacation
Sleeping-I could sleep all day long because my body is tired during the day and it wants to stay awake all night long.
Binge watching Netflix and Hulu
Taking classes on website coding and design
I would like just to sit and do nothing because at times there is nothing better than not having to do anything. I love not having to do anything at all.
Those are nine things I would rather be doing than being stuck at work. What is one thing you would rather be doing?
Here are the other prompts in case you want to join in:
1. If you could have any super mom power, what would it be?
2. List nine things you’d rather be doing today.
3. Talk about something you were allowed to do as a child that you will not allow your child to do.
4. Write a blog post the ends with the word: share
5. Your dream summer vacation.
I am sure most of you know that I started a new job the first of this year. Things are super weird because I am still in the same building and I still work with most of the people that I have for the past eight years, but everything else has changed. I am not a huge fan of change, but it is something that you will have to do no matter how much you hate it.
Since I am working for a new company now, everything has changed, and I am left with basically nothing to do while watching other people do everything I used to do. I thought for sure that working for this new company would make me stress go away, but instead, it did the exact opposite. I am now more worried about my job and what not because of how things are playing out.I already have a hard time dealing with this person because of things that happened when he was brought on and everything that is happening now it is just making it even worse. It also doesn’t help that I know as of February first I have to start all over with the insurance and drug companies to get my Multiple Sclerosis medications approved and what not. The only people who have the luxury of dealing with both will understand
It also doesn’t help that I know as of February first I have to start all over with the insurance and drug companies to get my Multiple Sclerosis medications approved and what not. The only people who have the luxury of dealing with both will understand how much of a headache it is to deal with one let alone two of them at the same time. I have been doing it for the past 6 or 7 years, so I am getting to be an old professional, but it still takes days and even weeks of calling tons of people to get it all set up and ready go.
I also have things going on with my family, but those things won’t get posted on this blog because you never know who will see it, and I don’t want or need that drama going on in my life. Those are just a few of the things that are currently frustrating me. I am sure once this post goes live I will think of a few more. Maybe I will turn this into a series because I do feel better now that I got those few written down and out of my head.
Today I am going to talk about asking for help and how I have a super hard time asking for help and I also have a hard time accepting help. I am sure the reason for this is the fact that my grandma hardly ever asks for help. I have found that I never ask for help. I feel like I don’t even know how to ask and just thinking about asking for help make me nervous.
As for accepting help I find that I don’t really have people offer to help so I don’t know have much experience with this. I do know that the few times someone has helped me I feel bad because I think I should be able to do everything myself and hate when I can’t do something. I do ask for help at work because I am the first to admit that I don’t know it all and even if I did know it all there is no way I can do everything, even if people think that I should be able to.
I guess the hard part for me is I don’t really have anyone who is close enough to me that I would trust to ask. I say this because I could use help at times with things that are personal and I also would never ask for help from people I don’t know and trust. I am lucky that now the Multiple Sclerosis isn’t bad enough that I need tons of help. I am really not sure what I will do when or if I ever get to the point where I have to ask because I am not sure I will be able to bring myself to be able to do it.
Those are my thoughts on asking for help and having people help me. I need to figure out how to ask for help and how to accept help because I am sure I will need to in the future and right now I feel like I have no idea how to do either.
Do you have a hard time asking for help? How do you combat it?
This is an old prompt from the writers workshop a few weeks ago. I found the post in my drafts and decided that I wanted to finish it and get it posted. The prompt is: The best part of my day is… I chose this one because it is something that would change for each person and I would love to read what others find the best part of their day.
The best part of my day depends on what day of the week it is for me. During the week I would have to say that when I get off work is the best time of day for me. I hate driving home with all the traffic but being off means that I don’t have to answer the phone anymore and I don’t have to be bitched at customers anymore.
On the Saturday’s I love when I get to shut my door and watch my TV shows. I am addicted to Lockup on MSNBC & Ghost Adventures on the Travel Channel. I get lucky that Ghost Adventures is on right before the new episode of Lockup and I don’t have to miss either of them most weekends.
On Sunday’s I love when I can read the whole day away and not have to worry about anything other than doing my laundry. I think I love getting lost in books more than I love watching TV shows. I think this is because when I am reading I can decided for the most part what people look like and it makes you think more than when you are watching TV.
Anyway those are the best parts of the end of the day for me. What are the best part of your days?
I got the idea for this post from a past writers workshop and I knew when I saw it that I had to write about it. The prompt is: Something that frustrates you. I knew I had to write about it because I find myself getting frustrated easily lately and I figured this might help me get the things off my chest and maybe even get over some of them. Anyway here goes the list of things that are currently frustrating me.
Idiot drivers who refuse to use their blinkers before they change lanes. I also am so tired of people cutting me off and then getting pissed off at me when I honk at them. I guess I should just be okay with getting cut off and almost getting in a wreck. I will try and remember that next time.
I answer the phones at work and I am so frustrated with people I work with not answering their calls and also never returning their voicemails. I am so tired of getting bitched at by the customers who get pissed off because they are never getting calls back. I understand the customers being pissed off but it isn’t my problem and I can’t make anyone answer their calls and/or listen to their voicemails.
I am frustrated that I can’t figure out how to make Elinore stopping pooping outside of the litter box. I wish I knew what caused her to start doing this let alone how in the hell I am going to make her stop doing this. If you have any suggestions please let me because we are all at our wits end with her.
I am super frustrated with my health and not knowing what is going on. I hate having Multiple Sclerosis because you never know what is going to happen and what the coming day will bring. I am so tired of not knowing what is going to happen or not knowing what is really going on because there is no way to really know.
Those are a few of things that I am frustrated about right now. I know there are more things but those are top 4 things that have me super frustrated right now.
Do you have any advice on how to deal with any of these? What are you frustrated about right now?
