Violet Newstead. Please hold.

Once in a while, there’s a day that kicks your ass. Your boss does something stupid, or you do something stupid, or IT does something stupid – no, wait, that last one is every day.

Anyway, you know what I mean. The days that leave you a mushy pile of yuck.

Lately, I’ve been having these days with increased frequency. Days that leave me staring at my cube walls, counting down the minutes until it’s acceptable for me to leave the office. Days when I wake up filled with dread. Days when I can’t even fathom what it is that I’d rather be doing.

Welcome to today.

The good news: it’s Friday. I haven’t yet completely biffed any work that would, oh, get me fired. So far, I’ve resisted the temptation to start carrying a flask. And I have a job where it’s perfectly acceptable to be lost in ipod land and therefore ignore the world around you.

So, I’m listening to Bon Jovi. But even they aren’t helping my outlook.

I’m frustrated because I hate feeling like this. I know that the real truth of the matter is that I like my job. I like where I work. I like the people I work with. I enjoy the work. So why do I feel like the sky is falling? And what can I do to get over this slump?

The idea of cleaning out my garage this weekend is actually sounding really appealing. Do you see why I’m worried about my current mental state?
