This is how I’ve been functioning over the last several months. I live for the weekends. I know – everyone lives for the weekends. But lately, when Monday morning arrives I think about the number of hours until Monday evening. When Tuesday arrives, I do the same. When Wednesday comes I start thinking – ok, only a couple of more days to go until I can wind down and relax.
This countdown is a relatively recent development for me. I never used to get through my days this way. In some ways, time seems to pass more quickly, but in other ways, not so much. I suppose I’m like the majority of people out there, though – a huge club of disaffected working folk. I love my colleagues, don’t get me wrong. They’re great. But work is work, and I miss my GIRLS!
Listen, I’d never be so bold to ask for a job where I’m counting down the weekends until Monday – that’d be too extreme. But it would certainly be neat to have a job where work is something I’m passionate about. I’ve never really had a job like that and it’d be nice to experience it at least once before I retire. And considering the increasing number of bozos in Washington, by the time I’m ready to retire, I likely won’t be able to retire. On the bright, cup half-full side, however, that means that I still have a lot of years to try to get that experience under my belt.
