It’s beginning to look a lot like…

<insert whatever you want here>

I suppose I'm a scrooge.  I really haven't been "into" Christmas for many years now.  I think it stopped being interesting and/or fun about 20 years ago.  Every once in a while, though, when I go into "the Christmas room" (where the tree is..all decorations are in one room) and I smell the tree, I get a little nostalgic, then I go into another room and it's over.

But that's not why I started this post.

My horoscope is DEAD ON today!

If work is beginning to feel more like a burden than a joy, it may be time to rethink your job, MiamiShyner. Your personality is such that you need lots of room to stretch and grow. If, instead, you feel stifled and stuck, then you know it is time to find a new professional challenge. You are fortunate that your skill set is such to afford you many opportunities. This time, choose more carefully!

Let's break this down:

BEGINNING TO?!?! 

Your personality is such that you need lots of room to stretch and grow.

Stretch and grow…circus!  Okay, crappy joke, but seriously, I'm in a very small box and that bitch is nailed shut.

You are fortunate that your skill set is such to afford you many opportunities.

I don't think that I actually have a skill set.  That is depressing.  I'm what you call a jack-of-all-trades, master of none.  You'd think I could pick something and get good at it.  Maybe one day.

Anywho, there are 45 days left until vacation and that's better than Christmas any day.  Have a holly, jolly Tuesday.

  • Oh I relate to everything in this post!
    My job now is boring but okay, but my last job was like being in a coffin. I was there for 5 years, and it really suppressed my personality and a lot of enjoyment in life. It was like an abusive relationship, you stay because you have nowhere else to go (me not having a skill set either…) and you need the security, and the longer you are in the situation, the more "normal" it becomes and the further away from your true self you get. I didn't even realize how miserable I was (and trust me, I knew I was miserable…) till I left, I didn't realize how much it affected my whole life, my whole being, till I left. It was almost like 5 years were lost, that's how much it feels like I shut down on myself.
    I hope you can find your dream job soon.
    I feel the same about Christmas. I do find myself liking things here and there, like late last night being in the city and seeing some of the lights up (not necessarily really Christmassy but that's why they were up), away from the fray of Christmas shopping and all that nonsense. So far it hasn't really been that bad, so I suppose I should lighten up a bit and enjoy that.

Say What?
