Living life in the carpool lane..

The lame duck..

Posted on: June 29, 2009

I’ve got 60+ days left at my current job.

In September, I’m going to start working at the job  I left behind three years ago.  I’m going back to that job with a higher position, and a higher status..

I’m a lame duck at this lab now..

I gave my notice a few weeks ago.. the longest “two week notice” known to man.. I figured that I should give them fair warning.. so that I could let them know about the things that only I had be sent out of the lab to train for.. but now.. I’m just bored outta my mind..

The economy has affected our lab.. samples aren’t coming in as frequently.. I’m left in my specific rotation with nothing to do on some days.. it’s frustrating because I could be using that time to do important things like getting my school work done.. instead.. I’m sitting here.. twiddling my thumbs.. surfing the internet when I can.. but knowing I’ll get repremanded for it.. but who can blame me when there really is nothing to do?!

I wish that they were flexible enough to allow me to work on my school work while here on slow days.. but I get reprimanded.. whatever.. I’m so over the way they treat me like a second-class citizen here.. just because I’m the youngest.. relatively newest.. one here.. and I’m the one that’s been sent out to places to get training for certain things.. and I’m the one that gets the special projects from the other branch labs.. ugh.  Sorry I have a biotech degree.. sorry I work my ass off..

I’m ready for this move.. especially in light of all the budget crisis we are going through being a part of the University of California system.. reading the emails.. it’s pretty scary what they have in store.. especially for me.. since I have to pay for the rest of my MBA tuition out of pocket.. looks like I’m going to be getting out of here just in time!

God brings things into your life for a reason.. He presents you with scenarios.. and He knows that through His guidance you will pick the right one.. prayer and being open to God’s plan is something I’ve learned over time.. and I’ve learned to trust in the decisions I make because I know that God will be with me through it all.. and He won’t ever give me anything I cannot handle..
