Things I hate

Nuts (although pecans and almonds are growing on me)
Cold weather (I'm in trouble, friends. It's coming and there's nothing I can do to stop it.)
Celery (raw celery makes my tongue numb)
Socks and shoes

White noise
Prima donnas
Wearing a jacket or coat
Milk (I know, I'm weird.)
Washing the dishes

But more than anything else right now, I hate sitting at a desk with no work to do.

Seriously, I have absolutely nothing to do. I have answered the phone three times this morning and that's about it. Yes, Dad, I hear you whispering that it's easy money and you're right, but sitting here with no work is very stressful for me. Especially when it's a temp job and I've only been here a week - I want to make a good impression (although I guess I am - yesterday I was told that if I need one, they would gladly provide a recommendation for me "and it would be glowing.") and I want to help out. I'm doing everything they want me to do...I guess I just need to accept that this is a very quiet position in a very quiet office.

But I don't have to like it.

Update: That was this morning. I just had an interview for a permanent position, number 6 or 7, I think. I hate interviewing more than I hate having nothing to do. I hate putting myself out there to be judged over and over again. I hate that I know how good I am but apparently I am not conveying that. And I hate feeling so frustrated about the whole thing.



  1. Interviewing is hard. Real hard. And SO not fun!

    Hope all goes well and you find something soon, so you don't have to go through THAT anymore!

    *keeping fingers crossed for you* (which makes it VERY hard to type!) :-)

  2. GAH! I HATE interviewing too!!!

    Best of luck with it. Hope you get something soon! :)

  3. Oh good luck! I hope you land a permanent gig that feels productive and meaningful SOON! And I'm totally with you on the dill and celery.

  4. Dill - bleh.

    Good luck on the interviews!

  5. I hate milk and I hate doing nothing. I would rather work at warp speed all day than sit on my backside. So I totally get you.

    Sending you good juju for a great interview.
