Today I’m in one of those blah moods. I’m depressed and easily irritated. I’m not going to blame it on the change of weather because I love the fall and the relief it brings. Sure, today’s been a bit on the cloudy side but there hasn’t been any rain or anything.
I think it’s a mix of things really. Part of it came from reading the silly alumni magazine from my university. Reading about what graduates are doing with their degrees depressed me, probably because my degree really hasn’t gotten me any where. The job I have now I probably could’ve done fresh out of high school. Not gonna lie–some times I really identify with Pam from The Office (at least in the earlier seasons) in her receptionist job. 😛 The quote that really stands out for me was where she said (I believe it was in season 1) that it’s not many little girl’s dream to be a receptionist. I can identify with that!
Still, I am glad where I am. I’m married to a wonderful guy and that beats having an outstanding career–at least in my book. But I can’t help but get a little down in the dumps seeing where I’m at career-wise sometimes.
I know, I know I need to work on my book. It would be nice if I could get it to the point where I could be querying agents this time next year. I just have to motivate myself to work hard on it and perfect it to the point that it can be deemed readable to agents 🙂
Sorry for such a depressing post; I guess it’s just something that I’m feeling right now. Hoping tomorrow is a better day 🙂
