August 8, 2016
Deadlines as such do not bother me. I don't understand why I have such a glut of them at work - specifically, at this job. Every August for the last four years has been a calendar filled with red every single day. The parade of due dates has generally continued without interruption for about three months, before taking a small break and then starting again in January. If I am the only one who can do all this work -- which is why these deadlines fall to me -- then I should be very valued by the company. But clearly I am not.
