I sit in an open office, in the corner, doing nothing. Nine hours a day. Five days a week. Just doing nothing but breathing air and collecting a check. I'm so miserable here, I'm making myself physically ill just by showing up. I listen to music to try and dull the boredom I feel. The clients? Nonexistent. The projects that were advertised? Bait and switch. The management? What is that?
I get the distinct feeling they are making it miserable on purpose to get me to leave. It makes no reason for me to not have something to do every day. I'm asking the interior designers for work because there isn't anything going on. I ask and I try to learn the system, but no one is teaching it. The boss won't give me the time of day. Won't even greet me when he's in the office. I don't think I've said more than 3 words to him in as many weeks.
Anyway, I have a job now, working another 9 hours after this one. It'll turn to part time in a week or so. It's at night, so I'll have my days to continue looking for something full-time. I spent a lot of time and money to study architecture and I plan to continue trying to practice it and learn it. Just not at this firm.
