Been feeling out of sorts at work lately. I am in a position whereby my boss needs me to help him with the nitty gritty stuff that doesn’t use alot of brain, and doesn’t offer me much development. I can’t complain about my boss since he is really a good boss. I just wished that I get more opportunities at work.

I have a nice colleague too, but I really hate it when my suggestions get ignored. Also, I am kinda like a jack of all trades and master of none. I cover everybody’s work when they go on leave, and have no actual work to call of my own. How to be good at something when you do it to cover colleagues who are going on leave/training? kinda feels like the forgotten middle kid once again.

My friend thinks that his job is a means to do what he wants to do in life. Maybe if i think this way, I will be happier.
