i really don't know what to write about today. if anything. this morning i was definitely feeling in need of a mini-vacation. i just want a few days, weeks, months of a break. i could sleep in, clear out the crawlspace, recuperate a little. a hotel would be nice. and not one of those vacations where you need a vacation to unwind from your time off either.
if i didn't have all these doctors appointments & the upcoming wedding next month maybe i could take another day or two off. but is it ever enough? i don't suppose it is when you're completely unsatisfied in your job & have no idea what you want to do when you grow up. especially when you don't feel like you're a grown up when you're pushing thirty.

hope everyone has the opportunity to take a vacation, mental or physical, some time soon.

Well you know, you got a place to stay 8 hours away.

thanks, des. now if only that whole time off thing didn't come into play...
i've also got a standing invite for florida, but i think i'd rather hit a great lake than the gulf again.

Yes, it totally sucks feeling trapped in a sucky job and worrying that you don't know what you want to do when everyone thinks you are supposed to have it all figured out already.

i know you know how i do, suzanne.
heck, you should be an inspiration to me, getting published & all. if i actually got my act together & finished the 1/2 to 2/3 of the book i've written i could self-publish if i really wanted to. yeah, yeah.

i'm feeling the same way. i haven't had a single day to sleep past 7 in weeks. i hope you find your opportunity to relax soon.

well, i just found another job to apply for within the uni system: same great pay/benefits, closer to the apartment/smack downtown, 7.30-4.30 m-f, less direct contact (theoretically) with customers/patients. i don't know if i should apply. i'd miss my coworkers, but the other m is leaving in a year to go to chicago for nursing. i just feel so stressed right now.
sleeping in until 7?!?! i'd love it if i could do that.

Definitely go for it! Better hours for the same great pay and benefits are totally worth it, especially if your co-worker is leaving soon anyway. I stayed at my old job too long because I adored my co-workers, and then I suddenly found myself alone there and miserable, since everyone else moved on. Get out while you can!
