More and more, I am finding it hard to go to sleep at night at a reasonable hour (say before 12 midnight). It’s not like before when all I could think about was trying out for WWTBAM. I am not sure what it is. It could be the weather, the current situation, the lack of a job for almost three months, the bed, the constant construction next door during the day, or the fact that they don’t play the Charo Sprint PCS commercial enough. I just find myself lying in bed for an hour or so thinking about everything under the sun, before I get frustrated and turn on the computer to tire myself out. I have to admit that I am a bit concerned about the immediate future. I had been considering travel as an industry that I wanted to go into, but with all the airlines and hotels cutting staff and reducing hours it does not seem feasible anymore. I know there are jobs out there, but the competition is fierce. Even temp agencies are overwhelmed by resumes.
Pretty soon, apartment hunting will enter the mix, and I fear it may get worse. I am a pretty upbeat guy, but I have to admit I am starting to delve into areas of my subconscious mind that I have not visited since the long dark winter of 1994-5. I do know that no matter what, things are going to work out. I just hope they work out soon. Otherwise Susie and I are going to end up in Lyon’s at 3am again.
In other news, tomorrow I am off out of town again. This time to visit the relatives in Phoenix. I am hoping the change of scenery will boost morale and re-energize me. Also as a bonus, I will have 6 hours of driving time in which to contemplate the universe. Back Monday, I’ll let you know how it goes.
