Hi, my name is Clayton and I’m a workaholic! o.O
Yes, my dear friends… I have stopped going out, school is (temporarily) on a low level,, but I have been working like CRAZY!! Yes, I have enough to do, but I think I have been going beyond my own borders the last few works. All I do is work, work, work!
I’m not complaining. It’s not like I have anything better to do… uh… let me rephrase that: I don’t really mind working hard, because I actually feel like I am doing something with my life.
But I am sort of trying to manage myself these last few weeks. Especially since after 2 weeks ago I almost cracked under the pressure and my doctor advised me to take a break or else… I would break. Thing is that so much has also changed at the office; new management, I have a new office space, I have a new position, my old team is nonexistence; all is just completely… different. Being the control freak that I am, and since I am not able to do anything about all these changes, besides adapt myself to them, I was starting to freak out. Yup, in my head I sort of lost it an needed to regain myself. Need to step on the breaks before I burned myself out.
As usual everything was all in my head. I had some thing at work I was not happy with, but it all has been sorted out. 2 weeks later it all already feels normal and I am totally used to the new working situation.
I am however I am still a workaholic. I even worked about 36 hours in a row from Thursday to Friday, which resulted in me passing out for about 12 hours in my bed on Friday night. Okay, okay… I know that this is not healthy and I am trying to control my sleep and the amount of time I work in a day!
