So, I have been hella stressed at work lately due to some last minute updates to all of the code I have written. The deadlines are swiftly approaching and I’ve worked some longer days with little sleep (brought on by myself…the little sleep, that is). But, then I was thinking about it and it actually came up when talking to my friend Ellen last night at Sticky Rice. If I am not stressed out, I am bored at work. I left WV and Mantech because I was so teribly bored. I think I work best under pressure.
I was thinking about how my Mom is. Her job stresses her out but I wonder what she would do if she didn’t have her store and have to work anymore. Would she be happy? I love what I do (even though this project isn’t the most fun). I love it when I have stuff to do and I definitely work best under the pressure. So, could I ever be stress free and happy at work? I’m not really sure. Maybe one day. But as long as I am working in the IT sector, I think I will do best when there is some sort of pressure to perform.
On that note, I am going to bed. I think my guitar is out of tune. 😦
