I got a notice that I was requested for a 60 day deployment. It lasted 19 days.
I’m a little disappointed. Friends of mine are working at the central office but I was released. I even asked to stay. I told the leadership team that I didn’t need to be home for Christmas, maybe someone else was wanting to go home? But no.
I am frustrated with this job right now. I enjoy it so much, but I so seldom get to do it. I feel like I’m getting somewhere with the organization, but I don’t get to go out in the field very often. Friends of mine have, but not me.
I am told that the list is managed by an algorithm. I have asked what I can do to make myself more appealing to the computer, but nobody seems to know. I think somebody knows but I don’t know how to find them.
Boy there are a lot of “buts” in this.
So I am thinking I need a regular job. Something that meets more regularly. I’m sad about this because 40 hour weeks kill me. I like the irregular schedule. Only I can’t keep going without getting paid.
So I was home for Christmas. I saw my daughter, who wasn’t feeling well, so we watched movies and ordered Chinese food. It was actually a good day.
I don’t want to go back to job hunting, but I guess it’s time.
