Burning out

I never thought this day would come.  I’m burnt out from doing transcripts.

For the first time in my steno career, I’ve been inundated with transcripts for more than two months… I feel like I haven’t stopped editing or scoping transcripts without a full week in between to rest or have nothing at all.  I fondly remember the days when I wished for more work, crossed my fingers for no cancellations of jobs, and that I wanted to be more busy.  Not the case right now.

I’d been busy on and off before but this is the first time I’ve been so busy every week regularly that I really haven’t had much time to rest or relax.  I don’t have weekends because some days when I’m not working on the weekdays, I’ve been catching up on work on the weekends.  Thus, no weekend.  If you tell me “TGIF”, that actually doesn’t mean anything to me because every day could be a work day.

Summer is around the corner and the May long weekend is almost here.  I really hope next week dies down because I’m very tired and could use a break.  Ahhhhh *drowning in transcripts*.  Save me.

It’s also why lately you haven’t seen any real blog posts from me.  I haven’t had the headspace to make room for blogging.  Can’t wait to be less busy.

    Some days are really like that, left unnoticed for a long time then one day it’s just burst out. If I feel like this, that work is burning me out; I stop for a while (a day), and do nothing. It might not be the case for everyone – but it helps.
    I hope you’ll feel okay and less busy soon, Karen.
