I’m off shift work.
I’m back to 8 hours a day (not including my 2 hour commute), 5 days a week, and I’m HAPPY. So frikkin happy about it I could scream, but I don’t think my office mates would like that very much.
I’m also moved to a new position. I’m not doing very much at the moment and haven’t been given any direction, but that is okay for now. I’m ALRIGHT with that. I’m enjoying the down time. Enjoying the fact that I think this job is going to be awesome once things start rolling.
So. Now that I’m normal again, what do I do?
I need to really evaluate where I want my life to go from now. I mean I have been stuck doing shift work for 5 years. FIVE YEARS, PEOPLE! I have had zero social life. I don’t know if half my friends know if I’m still alive. I have no extra curriculars – AT ALL – and that has to change NOW.
So I have absolutely BOOKED myself SOLID for the next 6 weeks. I’m serious. Every weekend I have something going down and I LOVE IT. I’m going to catch up with friends. I’m going to get closer with aquaintances that I want to cultivate friendships with (you know, those friendships where you can call your friend to hang out and watch movies at home or drop by for a cuppa with no prior phone call; know their schedule inside and out). I want to ENGAGE in life.
I’m also going to get to those things that I’ve been putting off FOREVER. Like putting up that damn curtain rod in my bedroom; finish spackling the bathroom and get the room painted; cleaning out my office so it can function as a craft room.
I’M GOING TO HAVE TIME FOR CRAFTS! Holy crappola.
My energy level has spiked like you wouldn’t believe.
Gym in the mornings – here I come! Karate class; belly dancing; YOGA.
Watch out FUN here I come!!!!!
