Status: AWOL

Haven't been blogging as much lately.

Since that co-worker quit, I've been pulling 68+ hr weeks at work. Money's been good but I honestly don't think it's worth it. Been badgering other department heads about jobs/openings but none seem forthcoming. I might have to re-locate.

Discussed the issue with some other folks (especially my Dad). Some big cities were discussed as options (indeed, some good jobs are open at present) but the whole "cost of living Vs income" discussion is where we're stalled at. I'm still hoping for a local job but I've made it quite clear that I'm not putting up with this anymore...

Besides that, there's been some personal stuff going on. Been trying to save money for my coming vacation at the end of this month (and funnily enough - spending that money like there's no tomorrow buying gifts and presents for folks back home).

I'm holding out for my vacation - hopefully three weeks will give me time to recharge. But I'm not staying at this joint forever. Nope. I maybe young and naive - but I'm no fool.

Good luck in your search. Maybe when you are on vacation and away from the situation, things will become much more clear.
