one of the owners had a talk with me today. it turns out he heard through the grapevine that i had a hell of a time on sunday due to his brother and partner (as i posted earlier). he apologized on behalf of his lunatic brother and wanted to make sure i wasnt leaving because i'm an asset and they love me. i told him that i appreciated the gesture but i would under no circumstances work under those conditions again.
tomorrow marks my first day off in nearly two weeks and oh how sweet it is going to be. current plans include coffee with a work chum, a good long old fashioned swim, sending a care package to japan, a browse about the library followed by a read and topped off with a birthday hang a la erin. ohhhh man i can taste the day off goodness. i'm not going to be able to get it all done, i know, but just think of all the things you can do in a day! all the things aside from work!
working as much as i am, i'm coming to realise that i need need need to have a life outside of it. it's a vortex, especially since the nature of my job is so social and everyone is chummy and i genuinely like it and don't mind putting in the extra hours (when i dont want to shoot myself in the foot because my boss is a raging fucktard).
so to keep my sanity i've decided to make a definitive effort to divorce myself from work and get into my hobbies even more. photography and jewelry making in particular, and swimming too. i just have all of these ideas and i want to spew them out and make things, pretty things and pour all of my energy into something and into myself. because if i don't release this energy now it's going to curdle and whither and i'll look back and wonder what held me back and the only answer will be myself.
tomorrow is going to be the day off of the rest of my life. fingers crossed i dont sleep in past my alarm.
