i swear my boss is secretly out to get me. today i was told i'm to be in charge of a project starting monday. i did the project once back in march and hated it, and now i'm supposed to teach a team how to do it and work the project alongside them for two weeks. arrrrgh. haaaate.

meanwhile, people are all "they sure seem to have a lot of faith in you, you get to do a lot of stuff they never ask other people to do" ...and yeah, that is cool in a "okay, one more thing for the CV" kind of thing, but honestly, it's just getting to a point where i know i'm asked because there's no one else who can do it/is available. it's tough knowing i'm to try and motivate a small team when i already hate the project intensely, haha.

also, i'm to get to work at 8am tomorrow, as opposed to my usual schedule where i start work at noon. after way more than a month working noon-9 p.m., it's near impossible for me to do that. i just got home a few hours ago after a really long day where everything kept getting fucked up and have been working non-stop on projects i've promised to do and now it's 1.30 am and i'm already way overdue to go to sleep.


oh, and tomorrow i do the norwegian to english test. um. norwegians? could you let me know norwegian phrases related to instructions? like, when you read a manual with easy instructions, what are normal phrases?

i'm thinking maybe preposition things/ "active" words, like how you'd say "remove ____, open this, shut that, push the button, type this, unplug it" ...haha, is that vague enough for ya? :)
