for your personal life. i'm shocked to hear your feelings about the job - i remember how excited you were. are you looking for a new gig?
It was great for a year, then I started to trade 60 matches a month and it was starting to do my head in. I quickly started hating football and my two best friends in the department left the company. And lots of other stuff outside of work was making me less inclined to enjoy or care about it.
I recently tried to use work as a distraction from everyday problems but have only confirmed to myself that I have a genuine dislike of football and the atmosphere/nature of the department I work in. I started to get in alot of trouble towards the end of last year and start of this year because quite frankly work was at the bottom of my priority list. It didn't help that bad influences such as acionescu got me in even more trouble at work!
Soon we won't even be trading matches with live pictures, just a live news feed, and so it will become even more robotic and monotonous than it is now. I often trade two matches at the same time which is a chore, but from October we'll be doing four matches at the same time.
I am considering leaving, but the job market in this industry is not great - there have been alot of layoffs at our company as it is. I'm not sure what I can do to enjoy myself, either. Since I thought I would love doing this, but now I realise it's not important to me. So I don't know what to do, when to do it or why to do it. It's the "best" job I've ever had and I'm "suited" to it in many ways, and yet it makes me very unhappy. It's not at all stimulating and I feel a little dumber everytime I go to and leave work.
I also got a promotion and took a 3.5k a year pay cut to do so. That's the ass backwards nature of the company/department I work for. The promotion is effectively meaningless, it is simply a title change from "Football Betting Agent" to "BIP Sports Trader". The job I'm doing is exactly the same, only with more demands. So more work and less money.
i'm on facebook but not adding anyone from mtf, sorry
you should come to gtalk instead
What's gtalk? I didn't start using FB until last September, I just use it mainly to post music videos and wait for Andreea to stop washing her hair.
i like how you just left this hanging. what happened????
I came home the other night from work at 4am and suddenly had the worst pain I've ever felt in my life in my stomach/abdomen area. I thought maybe it was just a really bad stomach ache and would go away in a few minutes, but after half an hour it was getting so bad that I couldn't catch my breath. It turns out it may have been caused because I have been crash dieting alot recently, I have to have some ultrasound scans in a couple of weeks to find out the exact problem.
I hope it will be, going to the Louvre and Moulin Rouge.
