I never really realized how freaking time-consuming working full-time is. Though, to be fair, Slomin's is extra time-consuming, since it's not a 9 to 5 job, it's more usually a 12-8 or 10:45 to 6:45. And they schedule you for weekends. And it is so physically tiring.
Still, I'm actually really content with working. Because even though I liked Gadgets and Gizmos, I was only there about 15 hours a week, and the rest of the time I was just slacking. And I would go to bed at night feeling guilty at night for the fact that I wasn't getting anything accomplished. Nowadays, I don't feel guilty for my relaxation time (what little I get) because ohmygod I am so tired.
I also feel good about getting out and doing stuff more lately. I'm still in choir and I'm in a new bowling league. I've been going to the city a decent amount (went to San Gennaro last Saturday, and next weekend is Comic Con!!!). And I've been keeping up a decent amount of correspondence with friends from high school and college.
Also, my 86 year-old grandma went in for knee surgery on Monday. I know that doesn't sound like something to necessarily be happy about, but: by Saturday, she was walking a full 100 yards to go around a park with my dad. My grandma kicks ass.
The only major black cloud lately is, as usual lately, the boyfriend situation. I'm going to call him tonight, because our One Month Seperation Trial ends this week, and I need this sorted out. Either way it ends up, I'll be okay, but I need to know where he stands. And if he's still waffling, then it's over. I am not going to keep waiting for someone who can't muster any stronger feelings than "I might maybe still like you as a girlfriend but I'm not sure".
