Stress and detox

It seems to be just one of those weeks. Everything just feels a little flat of late. Of course, just staring at my phone for hours on end, wishing it to ring, to make me feel like someone in the world remembers I exist, doesn't help. Even my own parents don't ring me. I get the occasional email from them. I also realised yesterday that although I crave company, I actually want it to be the sort where you don't have to talk. I suppose I am pining for the days when a beloved and I could sit and read the paper, not saying a word, but feeling companionship. I miss that. A lot.

I got an email from a girlfriend this morning stating I was in a dream of hers last night. Apparently I was in hospital in Geneva, and was being transferred to a Beverly Hills Clinic to detox - from my American love. Yeah, great, send me to within an hour's flight of his home to detox from him!

In other news, I am starting to ever-so-slightly shit myself. I have an interview tomorrow. Same company, new job, more money, more responsibility. I really want this job. But I am not sure exactly why. I feel at a point where I need more (cue the previous post I suppose), and since I am not getting more out of my life romantically, clearly it might have to be work that fills up the slack. If I don't get it, I am not sure what to do. Getting some time away would be good, but when I asked my boss about some time off, he ummed and ahhed. I then reminded him that since April last year I have had one week off - and I have over eight week's leave waiting for me. Of course, getting the job and then taking the leave at higher pay would be the very best of everything!

ONE WEEK in over a year???? That's crazy. Really.

But good luck with the job interview and once you're in your new stronghold you can angle for more hols!!

Sorry things seem a bit flat at the moment, hope things pick up for you soon.

I know exactly what you mean about valuing silent company.

Good luck with the interview.
