It's all just Research!

So today's one of those days that I can't seem to get my father-in-law's voice out of my head: "Don't be a worker bee. Be your own boss!" Which I guess is my own fault because I work for someone else and working for someone else, I have to tolerate others, how should I put this, inability to communicate effectively. Yeah I think that's professional but very clear.

I need to find something I enjoy and am good at, that pays at least what I make now. Why is that so hard to come across??

My coworkers and I started brainstorming. We decided I should be an author. And when I am asked about what I did before, I'll say all my previous work experience was just research for the book I was going to inevitably write.

8 days til I go to North Carolina!

I am SO freaking excited! I'll be taking time off of work to scrapbook for three straight days! It's going to be marvelous! And to top it all off, I'll be hanging with my best girlfriend, Amanda.

I'm trying to get prepared for this trip and juggle the other million things I have to do before I leave: work, pack, study, chores, pay bills, etc.

I want to start working out but there's just not enough time in the day! I have no idea how anyone manages to do anything outside of work. I am so tired at the days end. Most things I do at home I have to force myself to do! I really like doing taxes. (Really, the only challenges are understanding what is going on with certain transactions and how it should be shown on the forms.) I just sometimes wish I had a normal 9 to 5 job- I could get so much more done in a day!

I still need to go shopping and I was hoping to mail my stuff up to NC to Amanda so I didn't have to check it when I fly up. I just know all my tools would get lost if I do try to carry it on board.

I need to go see a dentist before I go. I need some work done and need to get that ball rolling. Not to mention I am suffering from some sort of lock jaw. I'll have to see if Rakesh can adjust it. (I LOVE having a chiropractor boyfriend!)

Work to live? Live to work?

These days I feel as though I'm just living to work, when we should all be working to live. I miss my siblings and my friends and my down time. I miss wondering 'what should I do with my day, today?'

If I could go back in time, I'd go back to my college days and kick my lazy butt out of bed to go out and get something accomplished. Oh, if only we could.

So I decided, since I can never find enough free time to do anything on my 101 list, I could at least blog about why I'm not doing anything. So I'm turning this into my regular blog spot. :)

Welp, gotta get back to work! Much love!

Tabi's Road Trip Quotes

Life is good. Great would be an exaggeration and anything less than good would be ungrateful. I am blessed I don't doubt it. Case in point - I could not be happier to have friends like I do. So funny!

Texts from Tabi's Road Trip:

"Sweet home Alabama... The skies are actually quite blue."

"Florida should be called 'the sun will fucking fry you alive state' ... "The sunshine state" is an understatement."
