I guess I sometimes feel like I have nothing to post when I don't have an outfit. But, honestly, that's not true. I used to use my blog as an outlet for frustration and angst, because I have a hard time opening up to people. I want to talk about my problems, but most of the time I don't know how to say what's wrong. Sometimes, I'm just upset, at life, at myself... Sometimes I have to write it all out to get to the root of the problem. Then I can talk about it, or just let it go.

There are a lot of changes happening where I work... most of which I thought would be good, but as it goes, I'm having a hard time adjusting. We're expanding our department which is always a good thing, right? Except that expanding meant dividing up our department to make room for new hires. So now, instead of being around the rest of my department, I'm separated, wayyyyy down the hall, alone... or at least until the new guys come in. I'm now working in a much bigger area, which is great; I now have more than enough room to print, cut, and mount of the signs we do for the casino/hotel.

I broke down today after holding everything in yesterday. Yesterday was such an awful day. I wasn't ready to move. And apparently, no one else was. I was working, and all of the sudden, I'm moving my computer, following the large-format printers down the hallway. Oh, but we don't have the new people yet, no computers for them to work on; we're missing a printer in the general vicinity; no water cooler; no cutting-mats on the brand-new tables. It's a mess. My co-worker and I moved our entire office down the hall. By. Our. Selves. Apparently, everyone else was too busy. Ugh. I have never been so exhausted after a day at work that is primarily a desk job.

It will get better. I'll have a hand in hiring new people and they better be awesome or this new arrangement will not work... and they better have awesome taste in music.
