I’m not used to feeling like this, I’ve heard people talk about the Monday blues and how Mondays suck. So if Mondays suck, then everyday is like a Monday to me. Everytime I hear my alarm clock goes off at 4h30 in the Morning I know that I have to wake up and face another crabby day. I proceed to switch on the geyser and go back to bed for another 30 minutes or so. When the clock strikes 5am I reluctantly get out of bed to take a bath, have cereal and wait for my lift to come pick me up and take me to the torture chambers. I arrive at the plantation at about 6h52 have a strong cup of coffee and at about 7am my shift starts. I then spend the whole day staring at the clock hoping that it’ll be 16h30 soon so I can get the hell outta there. How on earth did I end up there in the first place? I was promised to get training, they lied telling me that theirs was the best training programme in the FMCG industry but all i do the whole day is work as an artisan!!
How long will I keep this up? How much more Mondays can I tolerate? What’s it going to take for me to just quit the job and find something better? I’ve been wanting to leave the plant(ation) for about a month now and I haven’t been seriously looking for another company, I’ve sent my CV to only two companies!! How do I expect to find new masters to serve if I’m busy blogging instead of looking for post? I really suck sometimes, I’m going to make sure i send my resume to as many companies as i can or else I’ll have to suck up and spend more days wishing I was somewhere else.
