New Hire

In truth, the day was filled with the tedium of spreadsheets, so I hope you will forgive me if my inspiration is a bit lackluster. Now that award season is upon us, I’ve been mostly occupied with the task of creating New Hire templates: a seemingly endless task of copying line after line of personal information from W4s and I9s into spreadsheets that can then be uploaded into the new payroll system. It is not difficult work, but it is detail oriented, and requires a lot of focus lest my habit of inverting numbers gets the better of me. And I don’t mind doing it: it is good to be busy, but a whole day of details is a LOT of details. And we’re not even into the thick of it yet.

I suppose this explains why I’ve been pooping out in the evenings: I get to a certain point of the night and my energy levels bottom out leaving me numb and sad and struggling to finish even basic tasks like washing my hair or trimming my fingernails. On the plus side, though, I’ve been making it through the day without an afternoon caffeine boost, so at least I’m coming by my fatigue honestly.

I guess that’s all that I’ve got for tonight.
