|01:01 pm - Rant at the current state of my work responsibilties|
Okay. I am basically the slave of my department. Which is fine, since my coworkers do not load me with unnecessary tasks, and I generally am free to pursue whatever seems to be the most urgent, at my own discretion.
But lately there has just been too much. Of everything. Of files to enter into the database. Of folders to file in the file rooms (which look like disaster areas because they're so backed up). Of invoices to sort, and copy, and match, and staple, and clip, and stuff into folder which might be any one of 6 or more places on this floor of the building.
I am behind. So far behind that I am beginning to despair of ever catching up. And since I am support staff, that's a bit of a problem.
Also, bad hormonal time right now. So I am stressed, depressed, and frustrated with work and with my own inability to get it all done.

Current Mood: cranky

I feel bad for you, and dealing with the unending rivers of curs'd paperwork is never fun. If you're doing the best you can, though, don't stress yourself, it only makes things worse.
I'll try not to.
But hey--your icon cheered me up. :-) I wonder if the paperwork ever gets terminally backed up at the SGC (hmm, fic?).

Boy...with a government that needs 460-page reports on cabbage requisitions, can you IMAGINE the workload from a department that deals with alien contact?

BTW, don't know how often you check your email, but there's a few more icons ready for ya. :-)
I just saw. You little shipper, you. :-D
Really liked the one with Sam and Jack in front of the gate. *dies laughing* It's so them.

Glad you liked it. I was thinking of another shipper icon there, but remembered our discussion re: your earlier pondering!Daniel fic and the differences between teammates considering the Gate. :-)
You tease! When will the rest of us get to see all these icons that JD is making for you? :)
Well! If JD doesn't mind, I'll do a post this weekend showing off his fine work. :-) Since He Has No LJ! *pokes JD to get an LJ*

I don't mind at all, as a mattery fact, there's a brand-new one to cap off the exhibition in your inbox. :-)

And I tole you, I have no need for an LJ because I have nothing to say. :-D
One suggestion, if it appeals. Make a list of what you have to do and cross things off as you do them. It won't necessarily help you get done any faster, but you'll see what you've accomplished, and it should help the way you feel.
LOL. I often try the list thing. Sometimes it is a splendid way of focusing my mind and getting it all into perspective.
Sometimes I don't *want* All That Insanity in perspective, because to see it all laid out before me is to despair. [/dramatic voice]
My supervisors have noted the overwhelming load and sent me temporary helpers, whose questions I have been answering all morning. Not sure whether to be relieved or feel yet more like a failure. *eyeroll*
Obligatory cheer-up thought: God gives you just enough time in every day to get done what He wants you to do that day. The rest of it just keeps going, the world keeps turning, and He provides.
LOL on your icon! :)
::hugs:: for all the rest.
Thank you! *hugs*
Oh--and happy birthday, right? :-)
