I did maintenance today. It kinda sucked. I remember enjoying maintenance. I looked forward to it. According to my boss I did maintenance more than it actually needed to be done. Which isn’t entirely true. I kept to the schedule the Fuji provided. Now whether that had me scrubbing racks more than what was actually required, I don’t really know. But I stuck to their schedule.

Seriously though, I use to love doing maintenance. I don’t know what happened. Am I more depressed? Is my motivation problem hitting below the belt? Am I just getting bored with work?

I got bored working for Brenda. Which had nothing to do with Brenda. Work just got monotonous. I was doing the same day every day with little variety and no responsibility. The cure ended up being taking over my own lab. For awhile there I was on cloud nine. I enjoyed everything I did and did it with enthusiasm. Now I’m coasting.

I’m making sure to get done what I have to get done. Nothing is being ignored. But work doesn’t have the zest it use to. I don’t know what to do. I don’t know how to fix it.

I don’t want to find another job. I’d just get bored with it too. And generally speaking I like my job. I adore my coworkers. It’s a good job. Giving it up would be stupid.

So that leaves me not knowing what to do.
