Life is always challenging. It has it's ups and downs, dark valleys and bright hill tops.

Today is a mixture of both for me. My boss just told me that they have decided (after considering to lay me off, but not wanting to get rid of this smiling face) to keep me on for a three month term. It's good to know that he's wanting to keep me around, there were several discussions leading to this point so it shows me he appreciates my effort. But at the same time, it demotes me. My duties will now be organizing the office, sorting out the vaults and doing any other odd job they can find. Totally not what I was hired to do, a legal assistant. There you go, one up, one down.

As soon as I heard that my job was being bumped down to temporary, I slacked from my every day work and jumped on the net to see what jobs were available in my area. A sucky thing to do. I hate looking for jobs! It's just become to regular for me.

Let me just take a moment here to clarify. I know that when someone mentions that looking for a job is usual for them, everyone always thinks that they must not be a good employee...but, without being full of myself, that's not me. I work hard, I'm positive, I learn fast and I take correction well. Buuuuut, bosses just like to quit on me! Seriously, the past three now have quit. The other jobs I have had all ended with good reasons as well, nothing to do with my performance.

Anyway, I jumped on the computer and found a posting, exactly what suites me!, that was posted yesterday. I'll apply as soon as I can and hopefully get a response asap. It's an administrative assistant job which is just what I'd love to do, basically the field I'm in now (if I wasn't just demoted). YAY!!

So there's another bright hill. Maybe they're out numbering the dark valleys...which is always a good thing!

it seems that EVERYWHERE are making roles into temp roles just to cut the head count. its rubbish and shows a lack of respect. and it annoys me every time i hear it!
