Check It

Things I Have:

[X] Full-time Job
[X] Place to live
[X] (Relative) Good Health
[X] Outstanding Support Network
[X] Options Worth Exploring
[X] Kindle Dollars
[X] Pen & Paper

Therefore, I should be less negative. I could expand upon these things and maybe I will at a later date. I don't want to jinx it. Or get my hopes too high. Wax melts, you know.

I managed to land a full-time, paying job at Goodwill. It keeps me busy. The store is located in the very grand Pennsylvania, near Penn State's main campus. Can I admit to you that I'm not as excited as I had hoped I'd be? I'm not. Gainful employment with some reasonably cool coworkers, a big house with my own room, and still I'm underwhelmed. Something is missing and the void makes me miserable. I wonder if this is the way I'll always feel. Maybe it's not about my circumstances and it's just about me. Maybe I need more time to let the dust settle. Maybe I need to relax.
