Definitely not worth it
The trip to visit the folks was very nice - that's not what I'm referring to, never fear.
No, it's the job that's killing me. I haven't written anything except this blog (other than grading comments) since January. Sunday nights, I get so upset at the thought of going to work the next day that I feel like screaming. (Sometimes I do scream.) I'm having trouble sleeping. I'm gaining back weight that I lost.
I spent hours this last weekend looking at job listings in the area. I am either over qualified (cashier/deli worker/etc) or underqualified (surgeon/dean/sales exec/etc) for every single one of them.
Something needs to change.
In the meantime, I need to survive the last 4 weeks of the term. Not as easy as one might suppose.
