Great I got stuck at the front desk again. Last week the support specialist at the front desk, didn’t show up like for 3 days, a week before that she called in sick again, and today she said that she has doctor appointment and apparently it supposed to take the whole morning and afternoon. Causally, she gets migraine headache, and she said that it runs on her family, and lately she just having issue breathing after they changed to new medication. So, I don’t know how much truth in there. I do believe that she is having some health issue but it was obvious when she didn’t show the day my boss wasn’t here, and today calling it that it supposed to be all day doctor’s appointment. I know I am bit*hing about it because I am one the who gets stuck at the front desk to cover her shift. After the semester began, it has been death slow. Recently, I completed one of the major report and now I really don’t have much else to do, kill time until i get some work from Patty. Honestly, my current position, you really don’t need someone to work full time for you. Part time work is fine in this position. When I talked to Mark, and he used to work in my position. He told me that now lot of exams are given online so you got less work load to deal with. That is why you will probably end up working at the front more often.
I am supposed to be stuck in my office with my own paper works. Plus, a major exam is coming up and tomorrow will be the only day I will have sometime to work on it and I am worried that if she doesn’t show up tomorrow either, I am screwed. If that happens, I need to ask the adviser to cover at least half of the day for me. The pattern of my job is like roller coaster, sometimes workload is very low while other times it is super high. It was super high for about a month, then it toned down for couple of days and from tomorrow til Wednesday, it is going to be high again due to practice TEA exam.
During summer, It was busy and I didn’t mind working at the front desk but once the semester started, and most students already meet with their adviser and etc. It just has been death quiet. Earlier today, one of the adviser and one of the Field specialist felt bad for me because they know this is not supposed to be main part of my job. One of them even asked me if I want some starbucks, but i let her not really because I know deep down I am going to be broke again. Mom asked me for some cash bc she has to go to new york again to get some paper signed for her property in bangladesh, top of that I have to pay full amount for my hr certification classes, I had to do some car oil change yday, and its inspection is due end of this month. Not to mention, one of my friend having her bridal shower and my nephew birthday coming this month. Really, annoyed by now due to my current financial status. I can’t wait til January when I will start looking for a new job or different position at uta with better paid. My sis in law is lucky, she has been applying place like last a month or so, she already received a temp job offered and at lot higher paid than what I am getting paid at my current position and she doesn’t even have a bachelor degree. She is planning to quit her bank job because they are not willingly to compromise anymore with her schedule, and she needs a flexible schedule because she has 2 years old son who attends day care.
With me is it some sort of karma or some sort of weird cosmic thing: When it comes to anything, its like i wait, i wait, and i wait,…….Low for awhile and bam! I hit the jackpot. In my family, i am the last one to get anything yet when I get it is something, it will be huge or big or grand. My current job situation has been like that too. I know something will come better in my hand later but all i can is wait. I really want to make a whole lot money than my brother, he is making now like between 85 to 90 grand a year, without even finishing his bachelor. he is planning to complete it by the end of this year. Then probably, he is going to get some raised again. I envy him but I am happy for him. I just need to bet him before I turned 30. one of the reason I am planning to go for HR because it has good money.
