We went to [redacted] for two days. It was a spur-of-the-moment thing; she said she wanted to get away and I wanted to be with her so away I went, too. It was a Monday. A year ago it would have been unthinkable for me to go out of town and leave work on the busiest day of the week. Things are different now. I am more in control of my time, I am proud of what I do. Yes, I haven’t been paid since I got hired (lalala happy thoughts) but it is rewarding, knowing that you are working for something greater than yourself.
It’s funny that I am more productive now that I don’t do 12-hour workdays. Whoever thought that being busy means being productive is deluded. I work three days a week now and I’m meeting the quota. It’s awesome.

Now if only I’d get compensated things would be perfect. Haha.
That two-day trip made me think a great deal – past indiscretions, present anxieties, and future uncertainties; whether monkeys actually eat four cheese ravioli (inside joke lol), why humans stay in one patch of the earth when there is so much more to cover.
Sometimes, doing nothing does a lot.
*Because I hate the expression so much. Hahaha.
