Here’s a bit of a secret, I’ve been on a two month long vacation!
While it didn’t involve much travelling or mojitos (actually there was one night of mojito making), it was a very enjoyable break from my prior day to-day happenings. What had happened was that I had quit my prior job. The hours were outrageous (too much time), the pay minimum ($9.00), and I came home every night upset, drained, and frustrated. I didn’t have time for the people I love, nor did I have time for myself! I had one day off in the entire week of pretty much 12 hour days and on that one day I was cleaning my apartment, or trying to catch up with some other part of my life to-do list… I wasn’t happy. So in kind of a spontaneous manner (me and Ryan had actually talked of a plan for about two weeks), I quit my job.
It’s funny how everything falls into place when you least expect it… and trust me when I tell you that the man above (God) truly has a plan. My first few days out of work were wonderful. I relaxed at home, caught up with my list of chores, actually enjoyed dinners at home with Ryan. It was what I needed. Then after a while, things started to slow down, but there was really never a time where I had absolutely no plans or was stuck at home all day. That’s not to say that there weren’t a few days where majority of my day was spent at home, because there were, but the busy bee inside of me kept itching me to go out. So I made plans.
I was supposed to quit my job at that moment in time, I know it, or else I wouldn’t have been able to do the things I did these past few months. It all fell into place… I helped my sister move into her dorm (first year!), I celebrated Ryan’s moms birthday with the WHOLE family, I was finally able to go camping in Mammoth, and most important of all, I have been able to spend more time with the people closest to me. However, the vacation is coming to an end, but I am feeling more than ready to get back to work. After a while, you need something to keep you busy, even if it is just a part-time job. That’s what I am looking for now. Something that wont take up all of my time, but something that will require me to have a little more discipline, but still be able to work towards some of my bigger dreams. I have a feeling that one opportunity is going to play out to my liking, so now I just have to wait and see. All in Gods plan.
