A Daily Mantra

I've developed a mantra that I have to repeat about 30 times a day just to keep sane at the moment.

I love my job. I love my job. I love my job. I love my job. I love my job. I love my job.

It isn't that it is that bad. It is just trying to handle 12 over the top personalities all working together in close proximity is proving to be harder than I imagined. TV people are prone to being Drama Queens and this lot really are taking it to the limit.

The urge to murder them slowly one by one is getting stronger by the day.

One of my colleagues and I ended up going for a drink after work last night. I think that both of us just needed that release and just to let it all out. We desperately needed to get out all of our grievance's and frustration and realise that we are not the only one feeling this exact same thing.

For me it was just wonderful to know that the other side - Editorial - was feeling the same and that even they battle with the same insecurities and the thorough lack of motivation at the moment.

We bitched about our colleagues as well as work which is always fun.

One thing that makes me laugh is how we slate our colleagues completely but start each sentences just so:

Miss M: Now I completely love so and so BUT ...

Colleague: Yes I know! I totally love so and so BUT ...

I'm hoping our discussion remains between the two of us. I'm pretty sure it will though as she COMPLETELY ripped our Series Producer a new one last night.

But she still does love him.

Too true...I know how that feels, when you have to talk yourself into job motivation...it sucks. Hope it gets better!

Someone once told me that in any sentence once can always ignore the statement that precedes the word “but.” True, huh!
