I am weird.  On so many levels.  For the most part, though, I understand the weirdness.  The one thing I don't get is my weirdness with work.  I feel like everywhere I go, everyone around me is working furiously and I'm always bored.  I never seem to have enough work to keep me busy.

This was definitely the case at my last job.  I actually begged my boss more than once for more work and yet it still didn't seem to fill more than a few hours of my day.  Taking on this new job was supposed to solve that problem.  I am still much busier than I was at DRC, but nowhere near as busy as I'd like to be and it appears nowhere near as busy as everyone around me.  Am I just not playing the game right?  Are they all just pretending to be busy and relishing the free time they sneak in when they aren't?  Am I supposed to WANT to not be busy?  Should I be slowing down the speed at which I work?

Right now I have my own job, I am covering for the woman out on maternity leave, covering for our office manager while she is in Vegas, AND I asked the VP of the company yesterday to throw any projects my way. Oh I'm also going on vacation next week so I'm working on getting all kinds of longer term things taken care of before I leave... but I still find myself busy for probably less than half the time I'm in the office.

What am I doing wrong?
