Hi everyone :-)
wow another entry in so many days whatever have you done to deserve it - or not depending how you wanna look at it LOL ;-)
Sometimes when I'm at work my mind wanders and I think of some good stuff for my journal and then by the time I get home I've forgotten it - isn't that typical!! Well today I decided it would be a good idea to write down what I wanted to say then I wouldn't :-) - not just a pretty face LOL
Well it stems from last nights conversation on the phone with Jacki. She was telling me about this bloke in her office whose been working there for 15 years. Fine your thinking - well what if I said to you that in those many years he's been coming to work the same way, dropping off his kids, gets to the roundabout by 8.15am everyday at the same time and gets to work. Leaves at the same time and probably has lunch at the same time!! I've been thinking about this non-stop since she told me! I mean how could he let himself get stuck in that never-ending routine. Blimin' ell if I'd been doing that for the last 15 years I'd want someone to shoot me!! Is it no wonder suicide deaths are high when we have to go through that? And for what? Where's the enjoyment?
I just don't wanna end up that way - suddenly turn round one day and find life's passed me by! Yet when I think of all the things I wanna do I conveniently come up with an excuse not to do them - so what's the answer? Is there another way? I can see why it happens, especially where I'm working at the moment! It's flexi time, not bad pay (considering down here pay is worst in the country), and pretty much job security!! I know what your all gonna say that no job is secure but trust me there is a little bit more with this place ;-) I started thinking about my own life and I think in the mornings yeah I am stuck in a routine but only coz I can't drag myself out of bed for a couple of days just to break the minotiny!! (I know that's not spelt right!) The office I work in though, my colleagues said and I quote 'no two days are the same in this place' and they are right, and for that I am thankful because that would grind me down if it was!
So what about when we get home then? I guess we do try and vary our evenings (or at least I do :-) just to break this routine but do we ever achieve it?
I guess what I'm trying to say I just don't understand why people put up with the same thing day in and day out! Alright it might be 'cosy' but there is more to life and isn't it about time we saw that?
What do you guys think? What do you do to break up the minotiny? Let me know your thoughts :-)
(Day was ok!! Managed to check to see if I can have the 29th March off work and I can woohoo!! Tidy flat as best as I can - unfortunately the oil stain is still in the carpet damn vanish carpet cleaner!! Hope and pray she doesn't see it!! Unfortunately I won't be here but if I suddenly tell you I have to move out I guess you'll soon know LOL ;-)
Take care xx
