Like I said I generally work over 55 hours a week, but I try to keep certain days to myself on a weekly basis. I believe that no matter what life offers you- you need personal time away from the day to day. So I try to keep my weekends free no matter what. On those days of I can be doing anything from visiting family, spending a day in P.A, A.C, Shopping, Going to the movies, a cabin in the woods, or a day of cooking dinner and Netflix. When I get bored or aggravated I have been known to fill the tank with gas, get an extra-large French vanilla Light extra sweet coffee, a pack or two of cigs, GPS, and begin to drive. I don’t need any place in particular to go. I just go. I’ll drive until either my coffee gets cold or I get tired of driving. Then I’ll set my GPS for home and head back. FREEDOM!
Now the things that I enjoy doing in my time away from work are great to blow off steam and clear my head, but at the end of the day they all lose a little something doing them alone. All of my friends either have families or careers at this point in their lives. Which I respect 100%. There’s nothing better than to have a career or another person to build a life a life around. I had both of those before. Now that my career which is my own business (sarcastic sneer) afford me the time and resources to do what I want, it’s hard to rely on my friends to be able to do the same. That is why I’m here.
I felt the need to prioritize my life. So all the people that I dealt with on a regular basis I sat down and realized why they are in my life. I have friends to watch sports with, to talk about cooking with; go to dinner with, and so on. So I realized that I needed more people in my life to add in between the times that I have free time and others are busy with their own day to day work or whatever life offers
