for the past couple months i feel like i've been losing a lot of control over my career/future, for the longest time it was extremely depressing, but now that i know what i don't know im kind of excited. ive been at my first real job out of college for 1 year & 3 weeks now and came to the conclusion 6 months ago that i absolutely have to get out of it, i hate it so much... to the point where it's so depressing. i take 2 hr lunchbreaks to go swimming everyday and still go home at 4. if i dont get to swim that day i feel like it's a day wasted. and it's not that i dont do a good job, i certainly do my job, i just hate every minute of it. so recently i finally decided id give myself 2-3 months to get a new job or id just up & quit cuz the job was killing me, boredom really kills. for the longest time my parents told me to just suck it up and quit complaining, the job is easy and the money is good, typical, eventually it got so bad my parents agreed i should just quit, even my patient bf was sick of hearing me complain and the depression was bringing everyone down. and it's not like i have to do bad stuff, it's just so boring it kills me that that's what i have to do 5 days a week. my depression over how much i hated my job got so bad last week that i finally built up enough courage (either that or broke down) to tell my boss, the director & the senior vp that i absolutely hate my job, manufacturing operations is not for me, i feel like i didnt have to go to school to do this crap, and its getting extremely difficult to get out of bed every morning. i want a new job. man those were some of the most nerve-racking meetings ive ever had to go through. i was hoping that they'd help me find my next job but also feared that they'd say that's nice, good bye. i felt so incredibly relieved once i told all of them, i dont think ive felt that good in the entire year ive worked there. it was well received, they said i was brave to admit it, and that it was obvious to everyone that my job was not for me and that they'll help me find another job within the company because i do really want to stay. since then i've been really anxious to find what i want to do and to know what my next job is going to be. knowing that i dont know what the heck i want to do. in the past, even tho i havent held real jobs, there's always only been 1 real obvious option and i always knew the path i was going to take... i never thought it'd be so exciting not knowing what i want to do next and thinking about the possible opportunities. im back in interview mode and it's kinda fun this time around... anyway, i just felt like writing about it.

im ready to give up on blogging, lazy/pointless blah blah blah... 

i had a lovely memorial day weekend getaway with my sweetie on a cruiseship somewhere in mexico. it was nice to be able to do a bunch of activities and relax on the boat, didnt realize how ginormous those things were. did some rock climbing, eating, jogging, salsa dancing, eating, pilates, eating, dancing, watched a comedy show & a musical, took a cooking class, gambled at the casino, papas & beer, best of all ... spent lots of time relaxing with the bf. Thanks to my sweetie for the relaxing getaway =)

lookin forward to the mini-trips this summer... annual bass lake trip is gonna be great, the boat gets bigger and bigger each year as well as the group. and of course, the 4th of july bbq/amy connie jessica's bday & con's bon voyage. i love the summertime.

yosemite falls

this past weekend i went on another camping trip to yosemite. i can now say i've hiked the tallest waterfall in north america (Yosemite Falls). it was quite the hike that i will never do again. i think im done with yosemite for a while. we spent the next day biking around the valley floor and to mirror lake which was fun. we finished off the trip with a tasty dinner at House of Prime Rib. 

the bike gang on our wheels...
