Oh hey guys.
Long time no talk. And I MISS IT!
It's about to get dramatic over here. Just get ready...
Having a full time job is ruining my life!!!
Ok, not really.
BUT, it sure is making my life difficult and I'm not sure I am loving it. At all.
Spending time with Garrett. Our schedules are so opposite it's not even funny. For instance, I am off today (Monday) and tomorrow. He's working. He's off Saturday and Sunday, I'm working those two days. Really? I'm not one of those "distance makes the heart grow fonder" kind of gals. Distance makes my heart grow sad and lonely. I need time with my husband people!
Talking to my family. It seems like every time my mom/dad/sister texts or calls me I am at work. By the time I am off work it is past 1am in Texas so they are sleeping. I'm used to talking to my sister on the daily. We already don't see each other often and this missing each other on the phone all the time is getting old!
Blogging. I love to write blog posts and read blogs. I haven't blogged in two weeks, except right now obviously. I miss it, and you guys! However, when I am done with work for the day, the last thing I want to do is sit down and blog. Blogging is a creative and social outlet for me which is something I definitely need. Also, it saves memories.
Having fun. Another reason I have not been blogging is because we have been doing literally nothing except working. Garrett and I are never off on the same days except for one weekend a month. That makes it difficult to do fun things together. I don't even have any pictures to share!
Having a clean apartment. Before I worked full time I had time to do the dishes, laundry, and change the cat litter on a regular basis. Now on the days that I am off I want to do nothing more than be lazy. Spend all day cleaning on my day off? No thanks!
Not being cussed and yelled at. Don't get me wrong, with my job it is just expected to happen on a regular basis. Staff get so much disrespect in this position. Just yesterday I was called a "white bitch" as well as told to "shut the f*ck up". Can you believe that coming from a 16 year old? I guess when you are raised by trash that's what happens. Still, it doesn't make it easy to be talked to that way.
So, you get the point. How do you people that work full time still have lives? I guess it doesn't help that I am on a rotating schedule and work weekends. Regardless, working my life away is not what I want or what makes me happy. It is the complete opposite. I hate it. I don't see how people do it without getting depressed. It literally encompasses everything and takes so much time away from the important things in life.
I'll take back the things that I am missing over an extra paycheck any day.
