Yeah for not hating life!

So yesterday was the first day since moving to Maryland that I have gone to work and not come home miserable. Oddly enough, is was the longest day that I've worked (13 hours). But it was also the first day that all of our students were back... and that is the key. For almost 2 months, I have been going to work, sitting in my lonely lonely office, attending stressful meetings, and returning to my lonely lonely office to cry silently and sift through the piles and piles of work I have to do. There were a few moments where I considered dropping everything and moving back to San Francisco. I thought, "This is HORRIBLE, I've dedicated the next two years of my life to a job that I hate" But my housemates convinced me to hang in there. They didn't want to have to divide my share of the rent. So I stayed. And now I realized that I wasn't in the wrong job at all. I was just miserable because I was practicing Student Affairs with NO STUDENTS. Now, the students are back and I am happy as a clam. Of course, I'm INSANELY busy. But all of you know that I like things that way. Next week I start my own classes, so I'll be even crazier and I'm looking forward to every minute of it. Now I just need to overcome this goddamn heat and humidity and life will be peachy.

Yeah for the better work situation! Kids are fun. You can fuck with their heads when you're in a bad mood. I'm not advocating that; just laying it out there.

Hey girlie, email me with what the plans are this weekend!

I'm living in Riverdale Park, MD. We are 3-5 miles north of DC and just south of College Park.
