I haven't spoken about my full time job lately. The last time I did, though, I think I mentioned that I was unhappy there. I'm starting to dislike it more by the day, and on certain days I dislike it minute by minute.
The culture of an organization really impacts so much about it. I don't like the current culture, which has been imbedded for about two years now. I have tried to focus on the positive and try to make the best of it. That worked for a while, but it is failing now.
It seems that everytime I feel like I'm coming to terms with things, something else happens that makes me feel foolish for believing it would get better.
I have been formulating my exit strategy for some time now. Now that I'm married and we decided to stay here until after my daughter's graduation, my pool of possibilities has narrowed. There is no movement here in my full time career with the exception of a few things.
I have given much thought to wedding planning full time. I still have a great love for local government. It's like my mind wants both worlds. I absolutely love event planning. I love the freedom it gives me, the creativity it allows me to express, and the planning and organization skills I get to highlight.
I don't know what to do, but I know I have never worked someplace that I simply hated. Okay, in college I worked at walmart for about 6 months and I hated that, but I found a new job and left. A career position isn't dime a dozen like a walmart type gig. I thank God for my growth and career.
At any rate, I have never been in this situation and I don't like it. I don't feel valued or needed. That's a terrible feeling to have 8-10 hours a day, 5 days a week.
