Earth Hour is today!
It’s March 29th, 2008… and tonight, Earth Hour, will take place between 8:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. I have been working on my family to try to get them to go down to the Nelly Furtado concert with me. I have a few reasons for wanting this to happen:
- Our family has really been enjoying each other’s company lately, and this will be a fun activity to do together.
- My Dad has an old Nikkon 35mm SLR, and he has agreed to take it out with us to show me a few tricks and so we can take some nice photos of Earth Hour.
- By going downtown together, no one will be at home so not only will our lights be off but I’m asking my brother and parents to unplug everything in the house (TV & associated appliances, kitchen appliances, laptops, computers… you get the picture).
Yes, we will be driving downtown though – but there are four of us going… that’s ok isn’t it? Anyway, on to my second part of this post.
I needed a few minutes to talk about me… and where I am (mentally and emotionally). I’m having a real tough time with what I want to do with my life. I’m not happy where I’m working, and I don’t think it has that much to do with where I’m working. Sure, there are problems but I think that I would be unhappy even if they didn’t have those problems. But it’s difficult for me to try and apply myself to figuring out what I want to do because I’m still trying to move back to Ireland.
So I feel like I have to just, settle for what I can find right now. And when it comes to my job, I’m just not the settling type. I’m the type of employee who will make my work my life. But I need to love my job, and believe that my input actually accounts for something. That is something that’s not present at my current job. So I’m searching… and even though I’ve only responded to a few ads, the lack of responses has disheartened me greatly. And maybe I’m so exhausted from my hectic day that I’m feeling extra down today, and the fact that I haven’t spoken to him in what feels like forever isn’t helping my blue mood.
I know this has been a little abstract – I have a method to my madness, I’ll get into this in more depth in a future post. I’m very tired today so I just wanted to get somethings off my chest… I’ll elaborate, I promise.
Whatever it is, it isn’t good for my stress levels!! Hope everyone else had a good Friday!
