It's Not Rocket Science: Week 2

Am I learning that I want to do something other than physical labor. No, I want to be happy and enjoy what I am doing. Sure I want to make more money so that I can pay my bills, but I want to do what I enjoy. I refuse to wallow in self pity about life not being as easy as I thought it would be. I am continually amazed that one of the most educated 23 year olds in this country (and the world) is having trouble finding an engineering job.

I applied for zero jobs this week. Mixture of reasons. Failing to please people... like usual.

I worked six days and another 46 hours. I quit checking my email Tuesday. If someone wants to get to me I have a phone. If it's that important someone will show up in person. I haven't been paid yet so I really have nothing to give to most of the people and companies that want to talk to me.

I ran a bunch. Not sure on the mileage. My watch's 50 laps are full plus both timers. I'm having trouble inputting splits on my phone (its like 97% of the Internet). I had a nice 18 miler long run and two B quality workouts including three sub 5:20 miles. I would have liked to do more but sub 5:20s is always good. I don't think I'm going to take two weeks completely off after this cycle.

Life is about the people, and some are more pleasant than others. I'm around some pleasant people now and will be this summer. If I truly believe that life is about relationships and not money then living with an income below the poverty line is a good way to demonstrate that.
