I had a small epiphany yesterday.
I tend to get "burned out" if I'm in a place for 3 years, give or take a few months. It's apparently been happening since I started preschool, the first burnout being when I was 7. It happened again during the second half of 5th grade. It didn't hit when I was in 8th grade, but I think it's because I only spent 2 years in junior high. It cropped up again in 11th grade, and it completely fucked up my GPA because I made straight Cs in 2 subjects that year. When I got to college, it hit me again junior year, and again during senior year #3.
Once I got out of college, I was fine...until now. I've been at my current job for 3 1/2 years, but the burnout started settling in a couple of months ago. I already know I'm leaving there in May, so it's really a non-issue at this point. It's just that whenever I find a new job, no matter what it is, I think it's going to happen again.
I guess, in a way, it's my version of the Seven-Year Itch.
