it’s probably sad that the most exciting part of my short term life planning is quitting my job (by mid-november you guys I’m stoked). but if nothing else it’s nice to have some sense of what I’m doing for a couple months instead of persistent inability to plan anything (no thanks to my work schedule that literally comes out on the saturday preceding the week, i.e. I have no idea if I’m working on monday until saturday night lol)
my big milestones are like: quit job (mid nov), continue classes, work on + finish portfolio by end of december, take the GRE (mid dec?), apply to schools (jan), and hopefully interview for schools while I try to find another job, maybe through a job agency this time. and then you know. work and whatever. maybe I’ll even get to take a couple weeks to go somewhere cool next summer but let’s not get ahead of ourselves
I’m really hoping the condition of my hands will improve once I quit. it’s really concerning to me that my ankles/legs soreness and fatigue will abate after a couple days off work but my hands remain as stiff and/or painful as they were, even after I’ve had (for e.g.) 3-4 days off.
