Too Much Work, Not Enough Everything Else

For years now my friends have been telling me that I work too much, which I've always denied because I actually feel that I tend to be pretty lazy. It started with A telling me that I'm a workaholic because I never call in sick to work. At the time I was puzzled because why would I call in sick if I could work? Over the years I have consistently worked 2 or more jobs at a time, much to my friends dismay, leaving little time for me explore other ventures in my life, including thesis writing.

However, in the past few months I've been trying to scale back on the stress levels I experience by cutting out jobs that I didn't need to be doing. At first I found this very difficult because I didn't know what to do with myself when I had free time. Years of never having time have taken their toll. That said, I've gotten over the hump and am finally starting to really enjoy my free time to the point that I am actually really looking forward to the end of this semester and only having one job! In fact, I'm so excited about it that I've suspended all outside of the main job activities to the point where I'm officially screwed because I now have so much correcting and projecting finishing to do that it is frakking stressing me out! Way to cope: write blog post...
I've also decided to unlink my blog from facebook because I feel like it makes me too cautious about what I say. If I want to express ideas about the wedding or ponder spirituality, I find myself thinking twice because it might pop up on the wrong person's page. If they visit here, well they sought it out, so I can be less concerned about it. Other than that, this space is really meant to be for me and I don't want to feel the need to edit myself.
