Greetings from the beautiful cubicles of my office! It’s 11:30 in the evening and we’re still here. We haven’t taken a weekend break yet because of this project we’ve been working on. We’re hoping it would bring in more hits so that, come December, we’ll have a big fat bonus in our payroll accounts.
I actually wouldn’t mind doing this if everyone in the office is doing their part of the work, but that will never be the case. There’s always one jerk who thinks he can get away with anything and enjoy the free ride as long as he knows “how to answer the head honcho’s questions.” Well, his days of dilly-dallying are numbered. The rumored reorganization is coming really soon.
I’ve been doing some thinking, and maybe I shouldn’t have taken the mobile component of the new animation show. I was too focused on that project that I failed to see the complexity of this big project we’re working on now. I could have probably shortened our overtimes and working weekends if we started on this early on.
But that’s now water under the bridge. It’s one of the learnings from this real-world training I’m getting.
Right now, what I’m scared of is spreading myself too thin that the quality of my work would be greatly reduced. I’m slowly seeing it happen, not just to me but to a lot of people here at work. I’m crossing my fingers and hope that we still have control over this.
