Good afternoon dear subs.
It’s been a while since I last blogged. I’m currently painfully dragging myself through the final weeks at my current day job. The struggle is real! As they say! Seriously though… it’s a real struggle. Every morning I drag Myself out of bed to do a job I don’t want to do. I commute to a place I don’t want to commute to and I work hours that don’t suit My biology. Plus the constant testing of my patience.
Why do I do this? Because I made a commitment to Myself to work 12 months contracting, save lots of money and start a new path in 2020. It’s all part of My plan. I expected it to be easier than it is. I underestimated my ability to be comfortable with having managers above Me and long sweaty cramped commutes. Im not meant to be managed and I’m not tolerant of sweaty cramped commutes. I’ve always been one to follow My own direction. So this year having a manager, an awful commute and being committed to set working hours has been very frustrating to say the least.
The biggest issue I’ve had this year is resistance to ‘What is’. I cannot accept this life style nor would I want to. Which is a shame really because I’m excellent at what I do in my day job and could have been happy and extremely solvent if I was that way inclined for the rest of My life.
There has also been the issue it IR35 that will soon come up for many contractors in 2020. I hear a lot of people will be going Permanent. That to me sounds like torture! At least as as contractor you are flexible to leave and move on. You’re not part of the politics or culture. That said, I wouldn’t put up with that kind of BS anyway. Smart minds talk about things, small minds talk about people. I’ve no time for the latter.
So my dear subs. Soon your wait will be over as will Mine. Soon I will be back where I belong! Literally counting the days! 27 days until I leave! Can you feel this frustration?! Argh!
On a side note, I am having lots of renovation work done in 2020 and would like to speak with any of my subs who know about landscape gardening and building large summer houses. Can you help?
I will be taking my first session in 2020 on the 13th of Jan after My birthday after a few weeks rest from leaving my current place. If any of my regulars wish to book in after the 13th on a Tues, Thurs or Friday of that week onwards please send Me an email.
I’m writing this blog on my phone at work. It’s time for me to go for now. I will blog again soon.
