I finished reading my first book in my new adventure called READING last night! I read "Their Eyes Were Watching God" by Zora Neale Hurston. I tell you what fellow bloggers, that was an EXCELLENT read for someone such as myself who is not an avid reader, but has a great imagination. It was almost as I felt each and every one of Janie Crawford's emotions as she ventured through life wondering if she'd ever find and/experience the one thing many people think they know about and have no clue...LOVE.
It is almost time for me to take my big trip to Myrtle Beach (road trip), and woe is me! I loathe packing and everything associated with it! The kids are excited about the chance to see the ocean (because I keep telling them that it in no way resembles the lake, and the beauty is almost inexplicable), so I am trying to use that as a reason to keep me motivated...that and the fact that I get a couple of days off work, and get the chance to go somewhere I haven't been before!
The swimming lessons are over and guess what...I didn't sink! By the last class, I didn't have my lifebelt on nor the 3 or 4 floaties that I used under my belly! I just used the little bar out in front as I practiced my kick motion, began a few freestyle strokes, and guess what?? I was brave enough to go under water!!! That is huge for someone who has/had fears such as I do! That's another thing that excites me about going to Myrtle Beach, I will be able to go in the water! And you know what else...I think I am going to sign up for the next round of lessons...it is MOST DEFINITELY WORTH IT!
I don't know what I want to be when I grow up. I have been a waitress, bank teller, Secretary, Case Manager, Trainer, Teacher, and now being a Program Manager, I am STILL not feeling this sense of wanting to retire from here! This is a matter of urgency since the age of 30 is right around the corner, and I have an MBA that I am not putting to good use! Entrepreneurship (then benefits cost and arm and a leg)? Go back to something I've done previously (which Teaching is the only thing that appeals-NEITHER of those things are very fruitful on the income end)? Go back to school (I fear that I will already be paying back student loans in the after-life)? Who knows?
Where in the hell is Mr. Right? Even my kids are starting to notice that I need someone in my life...I don't know if that's because they are tired of me hanging out with them or what! You know it's bad when your 7-year old looks at you and asks, "Do you date much?"
I also have to birthday blues...June 3rd is that famous day, and I feel the depression and anxiety seeping through my pores.
In your comments, suggestions on my next read; traveling tips; career advice; where to look; and pick-me-ups...
