I Need a Break from the Monotony

For serious.  I've only been back in the office for 2 days this week and I already can't stand it.  I don't know if it's me not liking my job as much as I used to, the fact that my boss is annoying, or the summer sads I get because I can't be outside as much as I'd like.  (Also, why is it so hot and humid already?)

I think I'm going to update my resume and start submitting it to some places and see what happens.  I'm really tired of working two jobs.  I have next to no time for a relationship, not that I have anyone in mind.  Pseudo-whatever-boy is all flaky and stuff.  Where does one meet people these days, anyway?

I also have the travel bug.  Bad.  I was on earlier (instead of working) and I saw an amazing 28-day trip around Australia.  Except I don't have an extra $5000 lying around.  I thought a college education was supposed to help you earn more so you can get out of the hole?  Clearly I missed that memo.

I'm going to come up with a more concise plan of how to make more money and travel and all that.  I think Job 1 should probably be getting a Passport.  I had one.  That I let expire.  And may have lost.  Twice.

I guess I just don't want to go through life settling.  For anything.

Is there a universal funk? 


  1. "I thought a college education was supposed to help you earn more so you can get out of the hole?"


    So did I. And then I met reality.

  2. They do contiki tours of Australia? I thought they only did contiki tours of.. umm... Contiki?

    Mmmm.. yeah, I failed geography.

    I think we all go through phases like that at work. Sometimes you work through the funk and things improve. Eventually I guess, you just pack up and move on when the funk gets deep enough.

    Good luck whatever you choose.

  3. Yes, I think there is a universal funk. I'm blaming it on noxious fumes in the atmosphere due to the oil spill.

    First off - get your passport!
    Second - buy a lottery ticket EVERY week
    Third - hang out where rich people hang out so you can nab yourself a wealthy boyfriend. Trust me, marrying for love doesn't always cut it.
    Lastly - eat large amounts of chocolate. I hear it does something nice in your brain.

    Be sure to report your progress.

  4. It's not just you. I've been in a bit of a funk for a while.

  5. i have been in a funk too. i love my job, but sometimes i just feel like i am in a rut. i haven't found a way to fix it yet, but if i do, i will keep ya posted!! :)

  6. I feel like this is pretty common with people I know right now. I'm bored. I wish that I had money to travel to exotic places too, but I don't.

    I suggest we both start playing the lottery each week. You can't win millions of dollars if you don't play right?

  7. I just found your blog through 20sb - love the blog title.

    I am also obsessively updating my resume and trying to find a new job to escape the monotony of my current one. AND I have a travel bug, even though I'm not a big traveler - so maybe there is something in the air!

  8. Nah - I'm 27 & I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up!
