And all of that is getting me thinking about my life right now and the time I've had off. My cashola is slowly running out and I'm not ready to let go of this experience of having energy and time to do the things I like and want to do. I found a site called My Life List run by a very cool guy named Bill Starr. I have about 75 items listed so far (I'll post a link to it when I can figure out how to do that), and I get a little angsty when I work on it. I'm not ready to let go of crossing things off my list. I want to keep pushing myself out of my comfort zone. I want to hold on to this feeling of growing and achieving goals and experiencing new things. And I don't know how to do those things when I'm working.
I guess I'm worrying that I'll have to go back to this stressed, work-centric existence. People bitch about their jobs a-lot. Like, all the time. Me included, when I have one. But I think you really have to be outside of the whole experience to hear just how much people bitch about their jobs. And I'm worried that I won't be able to incorporate any of the great things I've recently discovered (surfing, running, being happy) into my new life - whatever it will look like. I'm not obsessing about it; I have plenty of time to worry about what it will be like to have a job when I actually find one. But it's been coming to mind lately.
