Anyway, there is so much more to learn, and I find myself dreaming of the day when I can get up and swim, come home, eat, take a short nap, and take my first client at 12:30pm. I could shave my head again. Or get that barbell thru my ear that I've wanted forever. I could wear comfy sweatpants and rocketdogs to work.
Oh and then there's sports massage, and MLD, and continuing education. I know Im right where I should be. I really love my life now..all except work. Work is the HUGE bummer. I really can say I hate my job. And sometimes, it's the actual work. Sometimes it's the people. But mostly, it's because I know I'm chained into doing something unfufilling for another 14 months to pay the bills. In the long (hopefully!) stretch of life ahead, it's not that much time, and not much of a sacrifice. But on this side of the 14 months, it seems like an eternity. And I know Im lucky to have a job at all and yada yada, but I do want something better with myself. And Im working on it. Im not just staying at my job, bitching, and not doing anything about it. My outlook on the future is very positive. I just need to hang in there for 14 months more. Ugha. I think it takes years off my life.
Im sleepy. I got home at 7pm from school, ate a lovely Udon/ gyoza/ edamame dinner that James made for us, finished watching the last 40 minutes of "A Clear and Present Danger", gave James a 45 minutes leg massage to reinforce the techniques I learned today, glanced over my Eastern Notes from today, made flashcards for the 15 points I need to have memorized by next Saturday...and then jumped online to see what was up in the world. Im going to check out the student Yahoo! group, and then kit the sack. I took Monday off from work so I could enjoy 2 days to study for my Anatomy Final on Tuesday.
