Saturday, August 2, 2008 - Wow
It's been over a month since my last journal entry, where they were very frequent before that.
I've been working and haven't had much time to really sit and stew on my thoughts. I enjoy getting a few days off at a time so I can just think clearly. It is an indulgence. Do you ever find that your brain just won't shut off? I wonder if I've been burning my candle at both ends for far too long. Now I'm either stuck in super-fast-don't-stop-thinky mode, or I'm borderline braindead. The only reprieve is being lost in a book, or sex, or asleep. I've had the past two days off to give me a four day weekend and it is really helping me unwind.
It isn't as if I work all the time, but I'd like to be able to leave my work at work if I could. Do you have a creative job? It is harder than I would have thought to switch off that part of me that thinks I could use that in my work. It leaves me with very little for myself.
Having said all of that, I'm merely trying to dust away the cobwebs of my journal and vent a little of some minor frustration. In truth, I really like my job. I just need to learn how to switch off and chill out a little more. Hopefully, I can do that by making more friends here - my solitary hobbies leave my mind satisfied but fairly fried and my body stupid with disuse. It is time for action!
