I’m a kiss thief. I’ll steal all your kisses and put them in a bag, and sell them on the black market to kiss dealers who will eventually showcase your kisses in expensive art shows where kiss collectors will finally hide your kisses in some dusty old room in their mansion, framed on the wall for lost passerby to view.
When I worked at my last job, I would wake up at noon, work 1-9, stay up until 4am, rinse & repeat. I would hurry in the door at five-til, usually out of breath and exhausted from worrying the entire drive there that my boss would have something to correct me on the moment I walked in the door. There always was something to be corrected. I would be afraid to wake up earlier because I didn’t want to be awake stressing about work, and would stay up late because after my work day I felt entitled to taking time for me away from phones and other people.
Now, I wake up at 7am. I spend two hours relaxing while getting ready for work, and show up a minimum of 15 minutes early. When I arrived today, my new boss took me on an hour-long walk around campus and gave me a tour of the department I’m working with. I was asked questions about what I like to do, shown around campus, and set up my new desk.
All I’m saying is this: If you are unhappy with something, someone, if you wake up in the mornings hating what you do, then change it. Don’t worry about the immediate consequences. Have some sort of a game plan to get you from Point A to Point B.
Because let me tell you, Point B is just as wonderful as you imagine it to be.
Basically me getting ready to go anywhere these days.
THROW YA HANDS UP
Basically what it feels like when I go into work every day.
