Back to work
Several weeks ago I was laid off from my job. I felt conflicted about it; on one hand, I didn’t have to go to work. On the other; Well, I still didn’t have to go to work. Actually, forget what I just said. I wasn’t conflicted at all. I loved it.
However, I was just recently rehired by my employer. Now THIS I feel conflicted about. At least now I’ll have a paycheck, but on the other hand I’ll be working. I was informed that he has work again, but that we’re “going to have to work twice as fast” as we were before. Considering how frenetic I felt the pace was before, you can imagine how this played into my general feeling of dread.
You see, as a carpenter, I deal with existential dread on a daily basis. It’s hard work, oftentimes dirty, loud, and there’s always the risk of injury just to keep you on your toes. Mystifyingly, some people actually enjoy it, even saying that they were made for it. I do not fall into that category. I was made for sleeping.
So how will this affect my already fragile emotional and mental state? Stay tuned to find out.
