What’s Gone By
14 November, was the celebration programme for KZBM's 97th anniversary. Fancy dress with one adult and child was the request, and eight pairs came forward in the most creative way. As two entries were as good as each other, a tie was awarded for the 1st prize.
'Turtle with a rock' was Darian and Dinaz Divecha and 'garden with a tree' was Anushe and Khushnuma Engineer. Tremendous effort and most beautifully portrayed. The others were Hawaiian couple, doctor & nurse, two clowns, wolf-grandma-red riding hood-woodcutter (a family of 4), beggar & baby, mermaid & witch. 67 adults & 16 children had a fun evening together.
The new A & T directories have been available since 3rd December. We would like to draw your attention, that during binding the printer has made errors in many copies, by pages either being omitted or placed incorrectly, so do check your copies when purchasing. Any faulty copies may be returned to the person you purchased the directory from and it will be replaced.

When you don't like your job, going to work every day can be a challenge. Your problem might be with a bad manager, that you constantly feel stretched to the breaking point, or that you are resentful about taking a pay cut. Or, the whole environment may just feel toxic. You might need to stay in your job because it provides for you your monthly bread or maybe you're only staying while you look for another position. Whatever your reasons for being unhappy, you need to maintain your professionalism and prevent a bad attitude from sabotaging you.
There's something elemental about the statement 'I'm unhappy at work.'" To understand your unhappiness, you need to turn towards that feeling of unhappiness, experience it in a deep way, and not try to solve things too quickly. That may be hard for some people to hear, because while it's true that sometimes people just don't match well with their jobs, employees tend to rationalize their job dissatisfaction rather than consider that they may be part of the problem. But if you are part of the problem, you may be part of the solution, too as no work is uninteresting if you can think how to do it differently.
That's not to say unhappy workers don't have valid complaints. One thing you don't want to do, however, is let your feelings boil over at work.
Signs That You Need to Take
Perhaps you've heard of someone who was so unhappy he quit on the spot or blew up at a boss. Losing control at work helps no one and may have repercussions in both your current job and in the future — you never know when you'll work with one of your current colleagues again.
Indications that you need to address your emotions may be physical or behavioral These signs include feeling distracted, sluggish, angry or irritable, not sleeping well or sleeping excessively, relying on alcohol or food to comfort yourself, and withdrawing from friends and activities. All may indicate underlying depression or anxiety, which you shouldn't ignore.
There are also things you can try to change in your approach to your job. Consider these solutions for surviving and even thriving in a job that's less than optimal:
1. Face the reality head-on. During a recession or slow recovery, people at all levels experience the pain. Such an economic climate makes it more difficult to leave a job, but it doesn't mean you should feel stuck. Accept that this job is not where you want to be, even if you can't make a change today. But begin taking steps to change things. Tell yourself, 'This is where I am, this is where I'm going to be for a certain amount of time.' You have more control over how you think than you realize
2. Develop a plan. Be proactive. Brainstorm with trusted friends and family members about your ideas. If there's something you'd like to change, decide whether your boss is approachable and if so, the best tactics to use. If you have suggestions, discuss how they will improve your performance as well as others'. The Human Resources department may also be able to help in some way to help you find a job within the company you're better suited for, to assisting with work/life balance.
You could also try learning a new skill. At the very least, it may help you prepare for another job. It can also lift your spirits and lead to new possibilities at your current job.
