Hating One's Job  
RIght, so I hate my job.  I'm pretty sure that I have said this previously, but I just wanted to reiterate that.  I haven't done a single thing yet today.  Granted that I've only been here for 1.5 hours, that's still balls.  Last Friday, I didn't do a single thing in the 7.5 hours I was in the office.  This is just a continuation of something that's been a problem since I started in this position.  I've made it clear to the people that I work for that I no longer want to work here.  I'm sick of the bullshit I have to sit through every day all day.  I'm sick of being bored outta my skull at work.  That being said, I am still here, even though I could end my secondment early and go back to the PSC.  I figure that's the better move, career-wise.  So I'm sticking it out, getting paid as an AS-02, but doing the job of a CR-04, or nothing at all....

I have an interview tomorrow morning for Department of Fisheries and Oceans.  That means I'll most likely get that position.  It's rare I don't get a position after doing an interview.  I also have a second or third test for an AS-02 pool at the PSC.  I wouldn't mind going back to the PSC, really.  I just want to stay at the AS-02 level, not have to go back to the AS-01 level. 

I also recently did an interview for an AS-02 position for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Internationl Trade.  A position where I'd be working in Afghanistan for a year.  I'm still on the fence about that one.  A part of me knows that it would be a life-changing experience, that it would be smart financially, and that this is the time in my life that I should be doing things like that.  The other part of me is screaming that it's dangerous, that I'll be isolated and all by myself in a war-torn country for a whole year, that I cannot possibly leave everyone I love and hold dear to my heart behind for a whole year.  I still haven't heard back from them, but everyday I wait, I lean more and more towards the not going side of the fence... but I'm waiting on an answer from them before making my own decision.

So anyway, I hope that one of these positions pans out for me.  I would love to be able to get the feck outta here.  I am at the point right now where I think that if I don't get the DFO position I'm just going to end my secondment early and head back to the PSC.  Sure I'd be taking a paycut, but chances are I could work for the President's Office again, so that would make up for the cut - even if it means overtime a couple times a week.
