I honestly think that my boss (Teresa) is underestimating me. After my trainer went home (she comes in at 7 & leaves at 4), Teresa sat me down & wanted to make sure that I wasn't being overwhelmed with how quickly things are going. I wanted to say that I had suggested me pushing buttons today but my trainer had told me to wait!
What do you work in AP? or a bank??

Can you take some classes to get a degree in something you're interested in? That's my goal for next year, to go back to college and get my masters in health care administration.

One of the messages we heard at this retreat I recently went to was:

"In God's time, not our own"

I know it's hard "waiting" for things to change for the better in our lives (believe me I know ), but it will happen for you. Keep the faith.

Going back to University would be extremely expensive, i'd have to do a strictly vocational course of which I wouldnt know which to do, and then there would be no guarentee of a job at the end

I've thought of doing night classes and the likes, because they cost less, take longer, and you can still work...but I wouldnt know what I wanted to do...it kinda needs to be a profession coz ive already been through this academic process once...I'm a Graduate...not though you'd know from my Eight years since

I woke up in a bear of a mood this morning. I'm not exactly a morning person anyway so when this happens, yeah, I'm not exactly miss sunshine to be around. Still trying to shake it off and it's afternoon. I had to take some Benadryl last night and I think this is the culprit. Yeah, I'm going with that. It's the drugs.

I just hate having to live like this, and feel like I serve zero purpose and will be trapped in this position for decades...its happened to a lot of people I know and work with.

Secondly...I fear that GOD might not want to move me anywhere...perhaps he wants me to do nothing particularly worthwhile, or worse, he's trying to tell me I cant do anything more worthwhile

I feel like a dissapointment in so many ways, to so many people, and I sware I am actively trying to change things, I'm not just complaining, or feeling sad, or whatever, I am now putting in the hours to change things on a whole bunch of levels, its why i'm only on here about half the time I was a few months ago...but when you've had a long week, and you get not good results...its quite difficult not to be a bit distressed...people always tell me that it will be alright, that things will eventually look up...but for millions of people this never happens, why should I at the end of the day be in the small minority who make something of themselves? Why should I be blessed with that sort of thing...there is no reason why, and plenty of reasons against...but it is hard when it pervades far more then just the job situation...its a great many things, involving family, money, job, personal issues...

I'm sure I'll cheer up after ive had a rest, and begin again tomorrow...but at this very moment...I feel on the down and out

You're not alone, Dave. A lot of people are faced with that ?. They want to change jobs/careers, but don't know exactly "what" they would/should choose that would be satisfying for them. I envy those who know exactly what they want to be/do careerwise.
