A few random (ok, sort of angry) updates on life…
1) Someone in my sister’s circle of friends (or formerly part of it, an ex of one of her friends that had been close to the group for a LONG time) died last Friday. It’s been very shocking, and unexpected and while the loss isn’t really mine, things like this unfortunately always make me think. Life is short and brutally CUT short, sometimes. It’s sad that these sorts of things are what finally force us to take a good hard look at our lives and wonder: What the fuck am I doing here? But I guess there’s a purpose to be gleaned from such tragedies, in that sense. My heart goes out to all of them.
2) My boss (for the place I work for ONE day a WEEK, for pete’s sake) might not grant me a day off for the last family vacation we’re going to take for a while, as my sister will be moving to Ireland for at least a year. If she says no, I’m quitting. Point blank, end of story. Fuck. That. Shit. Sideways. I’m too old to put up with this shit, and I’ve given enough of my time to these people.
3) I’m seriously thinking of quitting everything about this hospital. I currently work two different departments here, and the only thing keeping me is the pay, honestly. That’s it. And quitting will be the only thing that lights a fire under my ass, I think, to get my life on track, even though they always say it’s wisest to find another job first. WELL GOSH, I’D LOVE TO APPLY TO JOBS DURING THE DAY BUT I DON’T FUCKING HAVE TIME DURING THE DAY. Duh.
Yeah, I’m PMS-ing.
