motivation ...

... or lack there of.

I have so much to do in the next few weeks and I lack all the proper motivation to get it done. I also do not like how "things" have all sort of landed in my lap, sucking the joy out of me right now. I haven't had a day off in close to two months and I am still trying to figure out how I have already spent $700 on my trip and I haven't even left yet! I also love how I have three weeks of paid leave yet I won't be able to use it while I travel next month... something about working 10 weeks in order to earn one day of paid leave. I still think that is totally illegal, but whatever. I am beyond caring at this point. Yeah, yeah... I guess I should just be thankful I have a job. Two in fact.

Ooo Ooo ... and I am SO sick of dating. I don't even know what the hell last night was. I didn't get any sleep either because I dreamed I was being chased by some mutant Velociraptor Raccoon cross breed. I am pretty sure the beast was rabid and it tried to run me over in my grandmother's old Buick. Did I ever mention my irrational fear of dinosaurs, especially the animatronic ones. Then at lunch today, I had the strangest conversation with a Jewish man from New York. He was a Socialist. It was all I could do to not have a cerebral hemorrhage or infarct right there at the table.

And let us not forget; I have to take the TEAS test before I leave on vacation. So I am trying to coordinate the trip and study for this huge comprehensive entrance test...

...all this only to come home this evening and realize I drank my last Shiner 101 two nights ago. Thank God Lent is almost over.

I am shamelessly accepting your pity in the form of donations...

If I had money I'd send it to you - but I will just pray that Fr. Erik does - or someone just as generous.

Ditto what Terry said. But hey, we hear your rant, and we are, like, so THERE for you Kat. Like a former boss of mine used to say when trying to cheer me up, some days life is like a sh*t sandwich, but you gotta take a big bite anyway.

What is Shiner 101, near-beer like O'Douls? They used to have Shiner beer in Texas way back when, and it was pretty good brew, but no alcohol-free version that I recall.

You've really got to stop taking dating so seriously. The statistical probability of you meeting your one and only on any particular date or chance encounter is vanishingly small, so lighten up and enjoy all your dates, encounters, and offbeat acquaintances for what and who they are, even if it's only for the comic relief. God will reveal your perfect man to you in his time and place (or not), all you need to do is keep on showin' up and puttin' yourself out there. Don't think you're a lone ranger on the "futility of dating" issue, everyone is pretty much going thru the same drill.

I'll stop trying to cheer you up now. Have a great Holy Week.

P&B.

don't worry Kat I feel your pain as well, I'm thinking what the frack is God doing giving me this desire for Children (and lots of them) if there is currently no mrs Hughes on the horizen, and oh yeah and thanks to you I have this big fat dream about going back to University in 13 years to train as a doctor (specializing in pedeatrics)

As for motivation don't worry I've handed in 30,000 words of coursework this month - just keep going

perhaps you should have Mass offered for the soul of the racoon you murdered :)

oh and I haven't mentioned the exams I've coming

Still I will be at Fatima in 2 weeks and look foward to sharing some photos, unfortunatly my card is frozen whilst they send me a new one but I will pray for you at Mass this evening

One of the Ten Commandments according to Sara---

I think it is around 5 or 6....

Nice Jewish boys really should date nice Jewish girls...especially when nice Jewish mothers and Passover is concerned...

Okay, this is "old"...Terry said it,Pax et Bonum said it...I'm NOT going to offer Mass for that dern raccoon (sorry, just another mad catholic)--I've got enough animal problems here without asking for more...
Anway, wish I could send you some $$, really, but prayers and sacrifices are all I can give.
I know you will get there. God is faithful. Just leave the Italian men alone (bad news...can't tell you how I know; I just know!!).

the thing about getting Mass offered for the racoon was just a joke people (in case you didn't get it)

The Crescat said...

because we all know animals have no soul what would be the point :-P
