week in review

 

something I’ve learned about myself this week: I really, really love working.

after just two days off between jobs (four more to go), I’m bored. and not like the kind of bored where I don’t have something to occupy my time, I definitely do. but. the kind of bored that impacts my brain. I miss the challenges and stimulation of a good job + workday. I miss it terribly — after just two days without it. truthfully, to say I learned this about myself is probably a bit of a misstatement. I just hadn’t experienced the no-job feeling since moving to Denver nine years ago and this week has been a strong reminder of the fact that I adore my career and can’t wait to get back to work. yes, I will do my best to savor the next four days before I begin my new adventure at Charles Schwab but between us, I CAN’T FREAKIN’ WAIT!
