I would have posted pictures of my food yesterday, but I recently updated my computer to Windows 7 and subsequently it has decided it doesn’t like pictures or to shut down. I need to bring it to the magical computer people.
I will admit that I slept through most of yesterday. Well, I went to work first, then went home, decided to take a cat-nap and get down to business. Like most naps do in my case, my nap turned into sleepfest 2010, and I woke up 12 hours later. Guess I was sleepy.
It also means I skipped dinner. Picture if you will my food from yesterday:
Leftover Turkey Chili
Quite possibly a major make out session with my pillow but no actual nutrients were digested.
I’ve decided I need to make some changes in my life. While my jobby-job has been useful for things like bill paying and a place to widen my ass from 9-6 everyday, it’s terrible for my soul. I’ve been really unhappy while I’ve been here and I feel like the parts of my life that actually matter to me (i.e.: acting, writing, working out, spending time with the people I love), has taken a nosedive and subsequently I have been pretty unhappy with myself.
One of the most important lessons my mom has drilled into my head in life is “never settle.” Sometimes this has to do with a clothing purchase and sometimes it has to do with things in life that are way more important. I think I’ve been settling, as many of us do, in regard to my work life. The problem is, I still have work in the things I love.
I’ve decided to quit my job.
I know, this is a big deal, and I’m not doing it today. I need to find a roommate first, because while I do love living alone, I prefer my mental health and well being a whole lot more.
It’ll be a rough transition financially, but I think in the end it’s something I need. I make enough to get by if I have a roommate, and hopefully more time, means more time to look for freelance work in the field I love. If not, there’s always waitressing.
I don’t want to say I settled for a mediocre life I didn’t want, if I didn’t even try to have the life I do. Maybe one day I’ll say enough is enough, I’m fine with settling, but I’m too young for that.
Anyone want to come live with me?
