Yeah, I'm horrible at keeping this thing updated. I always feel like I have so much to say, but them when I sit down to write... well... I got pretty much nothing :(
I do have some good news! I started back at my old job yesterday and I finally feel like I'm back to my normal self. Funny how much I hated that place and couldn't wait to get the hell out of there, and now I'm so relieved to be back! They were all so happy to see me so I "let" them buy me Chinese food as a sort of Welcome Back present ;) But anyways, since we moved here I just haven't felt like myself. I've been running again which absolutely makes me happy, but other than that, I've just been a big ball of BLAH! I'm sure it's because of the job/money situation. All my prior "experience" has nothing to do with my schooling, regardless of the fact that I still have NO IDEA WHAT I WANT TO BE WHEN I GROW UP! Yes, I'm aware I'm over 40 now but SO WHAT!?!
I am still very introverted and shy, and I do not want to "go to" school. I much prefer the online degree approach. The problem with this is that I am a math/science person, and anything I'm interested in involves "going" to labs. But I digress. I may have found an alternative option. Health information technology. I could take my 20+ years of clerical experience (I type over 100wpm btw) and combine it with science/math in the medical industry and become a medical secretary or something like that. I mean really, what's another 2 years of my life, right? Wow, I got so totally off the topic of what I was intending to talk about.
Half Marathon training is still going well. I actually just got back in from a 3.5-mile run. I'm usually just warming up about mile 3, but for some reason today I had a hard time with the last mile and a half. My times were ok though: Mile 1 in 9:05, mile 2 in 8:35, and mile 3 in 8:55.
Ok so anyways, what I really wanted to say is how the saying is true that "You don't know what you got til it's gone." I have been in a total funk since we moved here, but after returning to my old job yesterday I finally feel like I'm back! I'm me again! I'm HAPPY again! So Yay! Of course it also helps that they are paying me more because of the longer commute ;)
And I really am going to try to do better with this blog thing.
