i'm getting to a point where i'm starting to have too many skills at work, heh. they just keep plonking me in to fill in on different projects so i keep having to train for new things and then be ready to use the skills once in a blue moon.

today i'm working on the project i was bogged down with all last friday while also preparing to take that test in an hour. after that i also need to fit in an hour of lunch as well as an hour of training for a whole different project i need to start filling in on tomorrow. i also need to start making sure i have everything in order for that other project i am to train and run with newbies on monday.

so, naturally, i was just asked to please train a group of newbies on an entirely different project today as well. i just stared at the guy asking because... _when_?

it's good to be busy and it's cool i get to do stuff a lot of other people don't, but it doesn't really bring me extra money, and it makes my days really messy so... meh.

this is exactly why i am applying to that other team - if i get that job, it means just sitting on one project every day, and with other people having to do the thinking and planning. after a messy 9 months, that sounds really, really appealing.

uh oh, another boss person is approaching. i swear, if they ask me to take on one more thing, i might snap. frrr!

I think this happens because you're a very loyal employee. I think you generally perform very, very well, and I think you like the security of being employed in one place with some consistence. (I don't know how it works there, but here call centres, support centres and such lose employees after a maximum of say, six months, usually.) You're a great resource to them. Of course, they don't seem to realise that by exploiting it in the manner that they are, they're fucking up the premise for you enjoying that security, which is just weird and thoughtless. They ought to take much better care of you. Hope you get that job! :)
