So I have a general feeling of ennui.
Want to go for promotions; like to be acknowledged for my skill and hard work; love being involved in things; LOVE the money.
But actually I don’t feel like working at all. I can’t wait to quit work. But if I did, would I regret it; would I miss the general busyness and miss people needing me? I know I’d definitely miss the money. And would I be just as bored or listless with whatever I filled my time.
Actually the only thing that has countered the feeling on ennui is finding out how it is pronounced. I have always said it, in my mind mind you, not out aloud as I knew I was wrong, en-u-i.
It’s actually on-we.
Those tricky French!
And thank heavens for the Internet. I never mastered reading the phonetic alphabet. It was a major stress in first year Linguistics for me.
/ɒnˈwiː/ See! Could you pronounce this as on-we.
