1) I have not been able to stop thinking about living abroad...it's not actually something that's "in the cards" or even available at this time, but I can't stop thinking about how much I would LOVE it. I've always been a travel nut and while we do go on a few trips every year, it's usually to the same places or places nearby. I'm itching to get out of this country and see someplace new. Back to the "living" there part though...I dream of living in Germany and have dreamt it for quite a while. I should have married a military man. Damn!
2) Since the amazing Medal of Honor recipients visited our school last week, I've been completely obsessed with most things military...one of the MoH recipients I met, Bruce Crandall, is portrayed in the movie "We Were Soldiers" and of course I had to watch it last weekend. Now I know why I don't watch "that kind" of movie...I can barely handle it and having met him (and others) in real life, only made the movie MORE real for me and therefore more painful. So now I feel like my job is so minuscule compared to what these amazing men did and those regrets of having not joined the Coast Guard have returned to haunt me. Now I'm just too damn old.
3) In general, a lot of regret. I know that's a waste of time but I'm stuck there right now. I had 3 people last week essentially tell me that my job/work is "inconsequential/unimportant", of course not in THOSE words, but might as well have been....so now here I sit, just about hating my job and wishing I had studied something else. Crap!
OK - time to turn off the brain. Goodnight.
