I hope everyone else is having a much better day than me. Today is a not so good day for me. I fee like I can’t do anything right, can’t ever get ahead, I’m soo behind, and just completely hopeless. And it really doesn’t help that it’s been gloomy all day and is now pitch black at 4:30.
I’m behind in school (actually “behind” doesn’t even begin to summarize what I am), behind at work, and need to clean my house – but all I want to do is just curl up in a little ball and die (temporarily).
And I just got into it with my boss because he just sent something out for one of my contracts and I had nooo idea that anything was even due/being worked on until his email hit my inbox. So I’m like, “dude?” And then he tried to make me look like the bad guy because last week I said I was swamped, so he just did this one quick thing. Super! Why did you decide not to TELL me you were doing said thing?! And if it’s my job, why don’t you send it to me THIS week and I’ll decide if I’m too swamped to do it or not. How will I ever become a good contract’s admin if others are constantly doing my job for me behind my back and just CC’ing me on the finished product! (If you didn’t notice, I work at a contracting company). PS – he does this all the time and is notorious for lack of communication and dancing to the beat of his own drum… in a whole other band… in a different chapter… of a different book… k – you know what I mean.
*sigh* So now my face is on fire and my left temple is thumping, and I still need to complete a few more things this afternoon so I don’t continue to look and feel like a complete failure.

@sleepingbeauty88: Oh honey Ive been feeling like this since I quit my job 2 weeks ago..like a complete and utter failure. Now I dont even have the motivation to do laundry…its like all I want to do is curl up under the covers and die. I also havent even begun training for a 5k..that Im running on Thanksgiving. Ugh, November 2011 is a bad month. Not to jack your thread or anything but I know EXACTLY what you are going through.

Hey, please don’t say that. You’re not a failure.
Take a minute to lean back, have a glass of water an breathe.. ok, now think “F*CK IT!!!”. Feel better? 😉
Your boss is stupid. Like you said, how are you supposed to get better when they don’t give you a chance? This is not your fault, though.
Getting behind in school doesn’t make you a failure, leaving your house uncleaned for another day doesn’t make you a failure, wanting to curl up and temporarily die doesn’t make you a failure. We’re all just human. Nobody gets a manual for life.
This sh*tty day is gonna pass and then tomorrow it might be a little less sh*tty, and you’ll get around doing what you have to do. Just don’t beat yourself up and try to go to sleep a little earlier so you can start fresh tomorrow 🙂
