Nothing major today
Finally made it back to the YWCA today (bad Nixon BAD NIXON!)
My weight has been fluxuating within a ten pound range lately, up and down quite a bit. It's driving me nuts.
Kind of accidently picked up an extra shift today, I told the weekday overnight guy that I'd work his Friday overnight, fully expecting my weekend overnight cohort to accept my generous offering of the shift to him, as he loves to work overtime. He turned it down, so now I'll be working Fri, Sat, Sun, and Mon overnight. Oh well, it'll be 9 extra hours on my next check!
The kids at work seem to be getting more needy lately. They've been approaching me for more and more hugs, which I gladly give, but then they don't seem to want to let go. I feel so much for these kids. Not all of them have bad parents, but some do, and even though my childhood was hard, it wasn't anything like what these kids have been through.
I've been doing a lot of thinking about my career choice here lately. Most people I work with actually don't consider what we do to be a career. The money is O.K., but its hardly what one would consider a lot. Most of my co-workers are younger, with noteable exceptions, and have been on the job less than five years. All have some college, most degrees, and most plan on doing something else within the next few years.
My problem is, I don't know what I want to do with my life. I have ideas, like opening a health-conscience sports bar, or teaching, or buying that damned dome theatre that taunts me daily (Village/Cinema 150 for my L-Rock bloggers)
I also have aspirations of voice acting, or if I lose weight, acting in general, with my absolute dream job being a game show host.
But, oddly enough, every 'career test' I take says I should do either what I'm doing, or something I've already done (Corrections work, Social work). With the one exception being "Minister", which I've applied to do in the past, but was screwed over by the church on. (Didn't change my faith, only my opinion of THAT church)
If it weren't for my "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" attitude, which is a direct result of a bad experience with cooking school, I would consider taking another risk to do something I could call a career.
But, the fact remains I'm happy and stable at my current job, which makes it easy to give up on my dreams, and settle for my reality.
