Making myself a recluse
Monday, November 09, 2009
My biggest problem is my ability to just say NO when I'm out with friends. I've found that I take the easy way out and stay home. Hanging out with them is almost always centered around eating and drinking - and when I drink, I eat. Plus it's almost always going out somewhere - happy hour, dinner, etc. - and I don't have any extra income right now. The sad thing is that I know by the time I'm ready to be out and about, they probably won't be around anymore.
I'm hopefully about to have a bit of a change in my life - a steady job. This will be a huge weight off of my shoulders. Knowing where I'm going to be M-F and what my paycheck will be will be nice. Plus I'll have insurance again - big sigh of relief. I like normalcy and predictability - it makes me happy.
