“Nothing is really work unless you would rather be doing something else.”
- J.M. Barrie
Confession time: I'd rather be doing something else. So yea...it's definitely work. I don't really talk about work a lot on my blog and for good reason: you aren't to mix your professional life with your online life. Well, I'm gonna touch on it for just a bit.
I've been a bit down lately which isn't why I haven't been blogging too much. This school year (I'm a school nurse) started off pretty good...crazy, but that's to be expected. Then the workload got worse. Then the work environment got sucky. I think my boss really doesn't like me and I'm swamped with paperwork and other things and there's no end in sight.
Let me tell you a secret: I really don't want to be a nurse. I'm alright at it, but I really think I'd like to be doing something else. When it came time in high school to pick a college and a major it was between pharmacy (which later turned into nursing) and art/design school. I went the practical route and chose pharmacy.
I regret it now but I'm kind of stuck. I'm the breadwinner, with a child, and nothing will pay what nursing pays. It really gets me down, especially when work isn't going well. I'm too young to feel this stuck.
I can't even begin to start making another attempt at work/career change because I have no idea what I do want to do. I really envy stay at home moms. I really do. And sometimes when I read all these blogs (about 90% of them seem like they're SAHM's) it makes me feel even more down.
So yea...I've been a bit in the dumps. I've been keeping busy in my evenings though! Playing with the Bean, hanging out with the husband, crocheting, Project Life-ing, watching Merlin. From 4pm through bedtime it's a really good life. :)
Complaining/vent over. I won't come back until I have a bit more cheer, okay? I just wanted to stop by and say I'm still here. :)
