Random Tuesday – Post-weekend blues, in need of vacation, on the bright side

Stacy Uncorked


  • Monday was a day that went really quickly until about 3 pm and then I was irrationally anxious and antsy – just straight ready to go home. But I had a chiro appointment at 4:45 so I had to stick it out.
  • I got an email for another interview on Thursday, this time for a position in the library. I don’t know how much any of these campus jobs pay but I wasn’t shy in putting in my desired salary. Let’s hope these jobs saw that and they understood before asking me to interview.
  • My weekend was awesome and now I just want a couple days to relax. I wish we had a holiday coming up but sadly, not until the end of the month. However, on the 26th, right before Memorial day, we’re going to a friend’s daughter’s graduation party at the beach. They’re renting a beach house and throwing this party so yeah, that’s going to be awesome. I didn’t even think about it being on the day before the holiday either. Nice.
  • Intermittent fasting update: going well. I have adjusted to not eating breakfast and actually, I am not too hungry. I’ve obviously had to adjust my window some days but it has been working out. I’d like to get down to a 6 hour eating window instead of 8 but I also think I should stay with 8 for at least two full weeks. I don’t know why but that seems right to me for some reason.
  • I move the bulk of what’s left in this office upstairs tomorrow and it’s weird. I mean, I have resigned myself to the fact that it’s just a way to keep an eye on me and that I’ll get a new job and remove myself from the issue. I can handle anything for a little while.
  • I found this morning that my mood has brightened enough that I want to listen to music in my car again. I find that when I am not feeling emotionally well, I don’t want to get into anything. I see now how those commercials about depression can say “lost interest in things.” I used to think music was keeping me sane but I guess I know I have an issue if I don’t even want to do my favorite things.
  • I need to calm it about getting a new job because you know what I keep thinking? If all goes well and I get an offer and negotiate for the right money, I’m imagining when I give my 2 weeks and then ask to have the last 3 days off – just so I can get those days I’ve been wanting. Lately, as I am getting ready in the mornings, I look out my window onto my lovely backyard and think, ‘It would be so nice to just stay home today.’ I want a day to myself: clean a little, enjoy the quiet, appreciate the home I am still in love with a year after moving in. Shoot, that would make me so happy, you don’t even understand!
