All my life, I've been one of those people who doesn't let others walk all over them, someone who says whether or not they're happy, someone who doesn't take any crap. Well, that has all changed since taking my job, and I'm not very happy about the change.
I feel like I have been "abused" at my job. I feel like I'm treated like someone who didn't graduate from college, someone who isn't supposed to be an accountant. I NEVER get to make any decisions, I NEVER get to put my two cents in, and if I do try and put my two cents in, I feel like my bosses choose to do EXACTLY the opposite. More days than not, I struggle with why I am even here since I'm just doing meaningless work. And by meaningless, I mean having EVERY single little thing I do nitpicked until it's not even close to what I started with.
Well, I was waiting until my husband found a job that he was enjoying, after all, he isn't even using his degree at his job, but I can't wait any longer. I am officially back out on the job market. Not officially, of course I have to keep my current job until said new job comes along, but still, I haven't looked at another job in over 1.5 years, but it's time.
I know one thing is for sure, I cannot do this for the rest of my life... and by this, I think I mean accounting.
Excuse me while I go scratch my lottery tickets :-)
