One down ...

I did it.  I submitted my final papers for the semester.  Phew!  One semester - nine graduate credits - down ... eh, who's counting, many more to go.  I am looking forward to a short break before three more courses this summer.  Time to work on my books and catch up on my non-fiction (but non-textbook) reading.

I wish I could say I feel smarter.  Right now I feel a little drained.  How can you be drained from thinking so much, you may ask?  I can't answer that, but I am drained.  Even watching Food Network feels like a challenge!  Time for a glass of wine and a quick celebration!

I'm immersing myself into the world of writing, dissatisfied with work and school, this is my hope to be independently wealthy, free to lay on the beach every day and drink pina coladas at noon.

I expected writing to be easier than this.  Everything comes easy to me.  I have been living this book since I was knew what TV was.  I will prevail, I WILL write this book, and others.  I have stories to tell, and they are much more interesting than the life I lead at work.

Working in HR is hard.  You have to remain ethical, even when other people's livelihoods are at stake.  Last week drained me.  So much so that I have done precious little over the Easter break.  Barely left the house, barely did any housework.  I've worked on this book, which I'm having a hard time getting research for.  I posted on Facebook and LinkedIn, and barely gotten a response.  As much time people waste on Facebook I figured a simple survey would be welcomed. I've gotten 8 responses.  I'm discouraged, but I will keep going.  I can't continue down the path I am now.  I'm frustrated and irritable.  Writing is what will (hopefully) save me.
