I think I'm moving but I go nowhere

Because I rarely have anything positive to say on this stupid blog (withthe exception of telling you to read Jen Lancaster's books ... cuz everyone really should worship her funny) ...

Stop & Stare - One Republic

It dawned on me during a discussion last weekend that I am currently without passion. I do not have a goal, a driving force, or light in the oh so distant future of this shall we call tunnel I suddenly realize that I am in.

The question posed was: if I could have any job in the world, what would I do?

*blink* *blink*

Does professional lazy ass count as a real job?

Truthfully, I'd never be happy with that job. It is so not rewarding. In undergrad, the goal was to graduate and make a difference in the world. In grad school, the goal was to graduate and be part of the larger machine that just might make a difference in the world. Now? Meh. I'm too tired to make a difference in the world. How am I going to counteract that much stupidity and arrogance?

Yeah, yeah ... I know ... one day at a time ... one piece at a time ... eating an elephant one bite at a time and all that ...

And I have become a bit of a self-loather in my discouraged state. I hate people like me that have a seat instead of going on. Welcome to my vicious cycle. But I digress...

I cannot think of something that I am qualified to redirect my attention toward that doesn't already have people far more meaningful attacking it in ways that would make my effort pitiful and sad.

...I think I'm moving but I go nowhere...

I think you'd make a good book reviewer. I bought (and finished) the two Jen Lancaster books I didn't know existed. I figure it's something you could A) stay seated while doing; B) get passionate about if the author is awesome; C) bitch about if the author blows; D) further your own life enjoyment by reading books for a living E) make a difference in someone else's paycheck---and really, what bigger difference is there (at least in that person's opinion).

Yes dear, professional lazy ass is a very good job as long as you have the funds to support it. Just don't let "Professional Lardass" become part of the job description.

In other words, do something besides sitting in front of your boob-tube of preference (TV or computer) eating Bon-Bons until your ass gets the size of Aretha Franklin's.

You're a nice girl. I could care less if you became a chub but I do worry about your health if you let yourself become a 600 lb behemoth.

Get yourself a concealed carry permit and a gun to protect yourself with and go bike riding around town and in the park etc.

It's very relaxing, good exercise and keeps the nether regions from turning into basketballs.

Glad to see you blogging again. Missed you for awhile.

Here's a little fatherly love and a fatherly hug to you. One thing about life is that it always changes. Things will get exciting again for you. Just give it time.
