Wanting more

Okay, so here’s the big thing I realized… work is not for me. Come on, Lauren, you say, we all have to work. Sure, but does it have to suck so badly? I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my life… my career… and, let’s face it, I don’t want my job to be such a JOB. So I’ve come to the epiphany that is driving me to return to school a helluva lot sooner than I’d imagined. Sure, I figured I would go to grad school in say, 3-5 years. But the catalyst of boredom is pushing up my turntable. I mean, one of the happiest people I know in the world is a Professor. The man LOVES what he does… he LOVES his job, his wife, his kids, his life. He is just generally happy and totally stoked about what he does. And that’s what I want. I want to love my life. I want to be intellectually stimulated with my work. I want to solve the problems that have no solution. I want to attack the issues that may not be resolvable. I want… the hell out of this cubicle, the metaphor for the job that restricts my thoughts to a confined space…

Now, I’d better get back to work. Joy.

  1. Hey Chris: Hopefully, you’ll see this comment. There’s a small issue with your request for me to email you– I don’t have your email address, and it’s not on your blogger profile page! Send me an email at laurensblog@laurensworld.com. That’s my blogger email… I prefer to not post my personal email on a webpage because of the inevitable spam that ensues…

    Hope to hear back from you soon!
