Sometimes I worry just to worry. Sometimes it just makes for a little bit of drama. And sometimes, I never know what to expect. So here I am, feeling almost foolish that yesterday I was concerned about the direction of this diet. Then today was almost a perfect day as far as eating goes. My only tiny mistake was forgetting to eat a snack at 9 p.m. and then having some grapes and turkey around 10:30. I am planning on going to bed around 1, so that might not be enough time to digest.
But oh well. What are ya gonna do?
My thoughts lately have been mostly about my job situation. I feel like I’m at a crossroads in my career. I don’t want to bore anyone with this, since I’m pretty sure everyone goes through it at least once in life. However, I need to decide if I can be happy being a sportswriter but getting paid like a janitor. My other option, I suppose, is to try to find a job doing something else (public relations comes to mind) and get paid more while not being as happy with what I do.
This decision is being made easier by the fact that I couldn’t be more fed up with my situation right now. Some aspects of my job are nagging at me constantly and my enthusiasm is diminishing by the day. And when there isn’t any enthusiasm, there is nothing to soften the sting of having a degree and making $10.50 an hour.
So lately, career has overtaken weight as the top concern in my life. That’s a good thing, since those are probably the two most important things I have to get right. And if this is to be a lifestyle change, then they are of equal importance.
