I don't think that it is possible to be more bored than I am right at this moment. This job is a joke. I have done about an hour's worth of work in an 7 hour period. And yet they seem to think they have to hire more people for the workload. Hello! People! I'm sitting here with nothing to do! Oh and then the once in a great while when they actually think of something for me to do and they're like, "Are you sure you have time for this?" and I feel like shouting at them really loudly and slowly, "NO PROBLEM. PLEASE I WOULD WELCOME BEING BUSY." And then what do they do, forget all about the "pressing issue" that needed my attention. Fucking liars.
I hate this job! I hate it! And I think that is why I am terrified that I won't get into any of the three schools I applied to because then it means that I'm stuck here. And then I'm terrified of leaving and finding out that no matter what I do in whatever career it will always be this tedious and plain stupid. People suck. I just want to feel like I'm being productive and useful. Is that too much to ask for? If it was just acceptable to read my book when I have nothing to do, I might be able to bear it. Fucking paper shuffling.
One more hour to go. One more hour to go........3 1/2 months to go. 3 1/2 months to go....

aw, i'm sorry. it's definitely better to be busy.
it won't always be like this. the older you get, the more options you come in contact with. there are zillions of professions that no one tells you about and that don't occur to you until you see them. you could be a skydiving instructor, i mean who knows right.
jobs will always suck. no matter what your job is it's going to suck. start taking online classes at work. that's productive.
i'm impressed that you did an hours worth of work. i don't think i even managed that. i attempted to find pages where my brother could look at diagrams on how to make origami dime in rings for crystal. and i finished a book. and i'm leaving in like 15 minutes. muah ha ha ha. this week is a good week.
See you can slack. I've got two people looking over my shoulder all bloody day! I would read. Ughh! I'm so angry right now. Stupid stupid job. Stupid berkeley. Stupid.
I actually think I win the award for the most bored person on the planet right now. Sorry, Nuala, I'm sure it's a close second, but I can't even watch movies at this point because I'm so distracted by how bored I am. I need a job NOW!
Also, I dropped my mouse on the floor and now the left click button (yes, the one that is actually used for something, is not working) so now I have to navigate the internet with the equivalent of my left hand.
No no, the jobs are evil. Get a hobby do something fun. Or at least don't get a paper shuffling job. Please Jason, for my sanity, do something that is actually productive in this world.
Good idea. I think I'll go down and get a new mouse.
it's not true! lots of people in the world like their jobs. you just have to find the right one is all.
Thank you. You see I am so easily pleased.
yes...definately better to be busy...then you don't have time to think about how boring and meaningless the job really is...unless of course, you find that job that really does hold meaning for you. i guess that's the holy grail we're all looking for here.
i am so bored (granted I'm also procrastinating...). i can't even think of anything interesting to post on my site.
I haven't posted anything in forever either. Brain think up something useful to say!
Walking around planting appletrees aint so bad. There is no pay but it is interesting to go back years later and see the trees I have sowed. I am glad not to sit in an office. Trees do not grow well indoors. I know that would make me more insane than I am already. An apple a day keeps the doctor away but not the headshrinker.
i so enjoy your fan club, ducks.
i'vebeen in school for about 6 years, i have no job, boring friends who only care about there segniffigant other, i can't even bore myself to sleep anymorei hate my life and i hate nothaving one, the only thing i can look foward to is my bitter sweet death. i don't care if you think or know you are more bored than me, i'm so bored i feel like killing myself to make life more interesting. jimi hendrix was the one that says "when you're dead, your life is set". i wonder if that is true. dear god bordem could never be so boring if i tattooed it on my head in my entre life i think every person in the world is aloud one year of entire happiness if you put it to gether and i wasted mine when i was younger, it's my 18th in a month and i'm not even looking foward to it
