One of those 'ah balls!' moments...

Given my hellish weekend it was hardly surprising.

This morning I was due to be on placement from 08.00. Not especially unusual, we have the odd placement day here and there.

I appear to have a karmic alarm clock, which despite being set did not go off this morning. Consequently I woke up at 08.38 feeling like death warmed over. I have a pounding headache and feel generally shite. Therefore I have phoned in sick and declared today a duvet and sanctity day.

My wonderful housemates bought be a spa voucher for my birthday, so I have called ahead and I'm going to get a massage this afternoon. One hour fifteen minutes of pure relaxation (and probable sleep). I'm a bit wary about getting Nekked, but it will be worth it in the end.

Tonight, shock horror, I plan to have a night in (or at least a night not at work/society stuff).

I was hellishly grumpy last night after I discovered that someone on our society committee had been bitching about the organisation of things this year. In large, something which I mainly organise. Realistically, I don't have time to do this role anyway, so I shouldn't be bothered when someone stresses at me. However, the fact that this was done while I wasn't there has annoyed me. Due to the stressful nature of my life at the moment, I've become very efficient at time management. Organising stuff is becoming second nature, and when I slog my guts out for something I find it a very bitter pill to swallow.

Maybe I should just resign and let them sort themselves out. Goodness knows, I don't need the stress at the moment.

There's no wonder I've lost 7lbs in weight in the last 7 days is there....

I love your blog Merys, as it's brutally honest...

Take care and try keep your spirits up.


p.s. my advice is if they can't appreciate your hard work, just quit, coz you don't HAVE to put up with it..

I know exactly where you are coming from - no-one ever appreciates or thanks the organisers.
You really have two options, depending on how disgruntled you are feeling - you can either resign completely, or you can take a hiatus - explain that you are completely snowed under for the next X months, and would rather that someone else stepped in for the meanwhile. Then you can nominate the whiner (in my experience, the people who complain about the organisation of anything are usually the people who couldn't organise a drinking contest in a place where alcohol is manufactured...) to take on the role.
You have to be careful - my uni workload was far lighter than yours, and yet I ended up nearly going under due to extra-curricular organisation work combined with dissertation, essays and revision - please don't push yourself that far!!

Resign from it - it's always the folk who don't do anything the first to complain. Stuff them. Let them sink or swim without your help.If you're stressed you need to lighten the load.

7lbs in 7 days? Steak pie and chips immediately. Mushy peas too if you can face them.
