Despairing deja vous

Posted: May 5, 2010 in Uncategorized

Every weekday around 4PM, I find myself sitting at my desk staring at my screens, and notice movement out of the corner of my eye over my right shoulder. And every weekday, it’s my co-worker standing in the same spot, backpack over his shoulder, going home for the day. Every weekday we say the same goodbye, except Fridays, where we wish each other a good weekend. And every weekday I turn back to my monitors and for a moment wonder at all the things I could’ve been doing that day other than the exact same thing I did the day before.

      For now, I’ll plan for the weekends and my next journeys abroad. If work wasn’t monotonous, they wouldn’t have to pay us to do it.

        No kidding. I try to avoid thinking of the other things I could have been doing, and instead think of the things I am able to do with my other hours as a result of sacrificing some of my time to the monotony. That sentence is a monster, but it’s pretty much the same as what you just said. 🙂
