I started my new course last night at UofT: Strategies for a Web Presence. So far, it's really interesting and should be helpful for my job.

The job, on the otherhand, is taking up huge amounts of my time at the moment. Another 12-hour day today.

And now I'm sitting here with my rooibos tea, nursing a migraine that developed today, thinking, "why am I doing this?"

Well, I like parts of it. I just really really dislike the one part of it that was dumped on me a couple of weeks ago that keeps sucking up all of my time.

And why is that, when you have the least amount of time to deal with it, everything goes wrong? No one does what you need them to do, especially not on their own, everyone screws up everything, miscommunications abound? I know why, I suppose. It's because I don't have time to follow-up on everything like I usually do. Or to proofread absolutely everything I write so that I am absolutely crystal clear and there is no room for interpretation.

But I wonder, why can't I cut a break?
One coworker said it today, "Well, your karma's bound to turn around. You're due for something good."

I hope she's right.

PS: while the Karma-police are at it, can they throw in some time for laundry and unpacking? Thanks.
