dear fellow bees, i must confess: september is a really tough month.
an international theater & musical arts festival started 5 days ago, but the preparations began on sep 1st, if not earlier. so, every day since then i’ve been coming to work at 8 am and going home after 12 am, sometimes staying for night rehearsals till 3-4 am. during all this time i “work my ears” (i’m a sound technician) and get loads of bilingual practice with technical staff members from different countries.
awesome, right? wroooong. the whole thing is already driving me nuts. i’m not saying that my job is the most complicated in the world, but it’s a lot of stress. my nerves start to play tricks with me. i get irritated easy as hell and today found myself screaming at a coworker for a stupid reason. i apologized later, but the fact itself surprised me, cos i’m generally quiet and peaceful.
thank goodness, my SO is amazing: he cooks for us both (although he also has to work, but less than me), wakes me up each morning with a cup of coffee (i can’t even smell anything edible till 12 pm) and looks after our furbaby, while the only two things i do at home is eat and sleep. the worst thing is that i come home all stressed and gloomy and can say something hurtful and nasty out of the blue, and then realise i didn’t mean it. seriously, it feels like a two-week-long PMS.
i feel terrible about being a monster, even though SO seems to be the king of patience and only keeps saying: “well, in N days it’s gonna finish, we’ll go for a walk to the mountains/have a drink at [our favourite place]/spend the whole day in bed…and i’ll finally see the real you”. gosh, i adore this man.
hope i can get through the next two days and not go insane.
ok, vent over, as well as my coffee break. 😛 gotta run! wish me luck.
awful job experiences with good endings are welcome, too.
