We leave for Portland tomorrow, my favorite little secret place, and I cannot wait to be out of here.
Work has become unbearable lately, and it’s sad. I appreciate the value of work, the things I can learn, all the ways in which I can push myself. It really bums me out that I left two jobs I loved, two jobs I was invested in, for this. This place that was supposed to be different, and in many ways it has been a blessing, but I don’t play the politics game. I don’t kiss ass. I am somewhere because I want to be there, I do a good job because I want to do a good job, I am kind and helpful because I am genuinely like that.
I don’t play the politics game.
So this week, I am climbing the walls. I need Portland so bad that I can taste it, and I can’t wait to go off the grid for a few days. I am restless.
