I'm feeling kind of down today. I've got access to some of the systems at work now, and it seems like they're definitely going to take advantage of that. Today I was assigned what I thought would be a pretty simple project, but of course it's going to be infinitely more difficult because the information I need is not formatted in a way that's compatible with what I need to do. (I have to make five sets of mailing labels for different categories of clients, but naturally there are no properly formatted addresses that I can simply merge into a document!!!!!) There may or may not be an easier way to do this than to format each address individually and copy it into the right document, but I don't know how.

I got another project today, too, but I won't get into it.

Anyway, these ridiculously time-involved projects are cutting into my study time and I feel like I've hit a wall in what I can learn. I have to look for some study tips or something. I thought I was doing okay this morning because I blocked out some time to study (I even put it on my calendar!) and I felt pretty productive because I knew that when the time was up, I had something else to do, so I was motivated to concentrate.

But this afternoon just kind of fell apart. I don't know why I can't remember anything! How am I going to pass this test if I have to memorize a million formulas and definitions and stipulations? I'm only half way through the book. Why did I think this new job was a good idea, again?
