Give me the keys to get out of this box.

So I think it might be a sign that I don't write in my journal enough when the last image on the first page of my journal is from my 21st birthday, and my 23rd is just around the corner. I'm not going to make promises to update more frequently because it never seems to happen. I've been meaning to update now for a week, but have been more preoccupied with getting new lj icons and beating level 3 of Zuma. (Obviously you can tell that I'm very busy at work.) Things are actually starting to pick up now. I have had nothing to do for a while, mostly because I just switched teams. I used to work on Subway, Schick, and Clorox accounts, but now I'll be working on basically all alcohol studies. Our main client is Diageo so they own Guiness, Baileys, Johnnie Walker, Smirnoff, Jose Cuervo, Crown Royal, and Tanqueray just to name a few. Which I guess is more interesting than cat litter trackers, but now I have the bad karma of trying to get people to drink more alcohol. I was really upset about the move, but I'm getting used to it over here now. I am going to miss the people I used to work with, especially my boss, but the people over here aren't so bad, and I definitely love my new office mates. But yeah, so that's work.

I actually wrote a really long entry a couple months ago only to have my computer freeze just as I was about to update it and I lost the whole thing. It was mainly about how I hate how once you graduate from school your job suddenly begins to define you. The first thing people ask is how is work, which I hate, because if I have something interesting to say about work, I'll say it. Otherwise, I really hate talking about my job. Not because I hate my job, because I don't... I just don't love it. I think it goes back to the whole not-making-the-world-a-better-place part of it. I just make rich people richer. And it's not that it's boring, but sometimes it's really obnoxious work, and then there are the times where there is no work at all, and that just drives me insane because it turns me into an unproductive louse in the rest of my life too! (I really really swear I am going to go to the gym tonight!) I don't know, my job is fine. I love the atmosphere here and the people I work for, and the pay is decent, too. So I really shouldn't complain, I just think I want more. I'm definitely going through a quaterlife crisis. I've been reading books about it (God, I never thought I would ever read self help books. I guess that's a good sign you're not where you want to be in life...) and talking to girls at work about it, and it makes me feel better to know that I'm not the only one who has no idea what to do with my life. Right now I'm thinking I want to look into nursing school. It would be a shitload of work, and I need a bunch of prereqs before I can even think about applying, and I'd definitely have to take at least a year off of working. So we'll see. I am taking a biology class in the fall and will be volunteering at Manchester Hospital, so I'll see how those go. All this bridesmaid and wedding business has made me think about starting my own wedding consulting business. Crazy, I know, but hey.. why not? So we'll see. I'm just really trying to tell myself that 23 is not old, and I still have quite some time to figure all this out. It's just hard.

Okay, it's 6:00 so that means it's time to go home so I can GO TO THE GYM. I promise I'll try to update more often. (Okay, I lied about the not promising.) Later, skaterz.

Good to see you on my flist again. :)

On the one hand, I'm like, 23 isn't old, SRSLY, I'm still barely a grown-up. But on the other hand, I kind of always thought I would be married by 25, which is looking less likely with each passing day. So yeah, quarterlife crisis, I hear that.

It would be awesome if you went to nursing school, and not just because you could tell us whether the medical stuff on House and GA makes any sense at all, and possibly meet your own snarky/yummy doctor.

Melted some marshmallows in the microwave for my kids today (we were making rice krispy treats) and thought of you - remember when we tried to make marshmallow sauce at like, 3 AM? Good times.

I hope the microwaved marshmallows worked out better for you than it did for us back then.

Let's not also forget about the bottle of butterscotch sauce...

3am marshmallow sauce... yeah the many things that seem like good ideas and then somehow backfired or just turned wtf. like rancid whipped cream on my pillow. heh.

quarterlife crisis yay. i think it's a requirement in life for sure. and i told you, if you start your own business i'm being the accountant. i can't stand my job... and probably won't like accounting in general. yay college money down the drain.

but hey! you went to the gym, yay.
