Ten Days from Tomorrow

I think I may be talking my own ear off about this trip to the East Coast. But the thought of the things I have to do this week is making me yearn for the week after when I will have the option to wake up at whatever time I want (not that I would sleep late because I'd probably be bouncing off the bed, ready to explore) and not think about work - any work. Heaven!

Secondly, I may be missing an important weekend away with my girlfriends, so I feel robbed somehow. I had been looking forward to this for so long, and now that I might not even be able to go because of work, I'm even more desperate for some kind of getaway. I guess there's not much I can do - bad timing is bad timing, and well... work is work. This is just spoiled little me whining about it.

Today, to keep my mind off things and to do something productive (remember my vow to make a "program" for myself?), I did some research on different careers that I may be interested in. This is something new to me - I never thought I would find myself saying that I need a career change, but here I am, seriously considering it. I suppose it's inevitable since I've been transplanted to another place, and there's just so much change in my environment that I have to change somehow as well.

I was remembering just recently how I almost majored in Occupational Therapy, but that I had been teased endlessly about this profession, so I changed my mind and went into the computer field instead. I wonder how different my life would have been if I hadn't switched? Maybe I wouldn't be having the problems I'm having now.

The fact remains though - I really like to work with people, and I like interaction. So sitting at a desk, staring at the computer the whole day (and getting punished if I'm seen standing up for a stretch or chatting with a colleague) is not appealing to me. I know that now from experience. Maybe that was just an isolated case, but it made its mark. It was like being managed like a machine instead of a person.

I could go on forever about the things I like to do and the things I don't like to do, but that would take forever. I know because I've been doing it in my head and I'm not done yet. Haha! Hopefully something will come out of this self-analysis though - maybe the next few months will find me doing a completely different thing. If all goes well.

That's reason number 3: With all these thoughts in my head, the break I'm about to take will serve as a recharge point, something to help me organize the thoughts in my head and make me think clearly. So Charlemont, I can't wait to see you.
