The concept of Time
Time is an interesting phenomenon. Whenever I'm at work, time seems to go extremely slow. But when I'm sitting on my couch doing nothing, it passes in the blink of an eye. It feels unfair, and it even worries me sometimes. What if, some day, I happen to get a job that will feel like a hobby? One that makes me want to get out of bed in the morning? If I'm happy in both my private life and work life, will my life be over before I realize it? Focusing on the present and being mindfull..nessy(?).. might that be the cure?
I have been thinking about changing my career path. I find that my current job is a little too demanding. Irregular shifts, always being understaffed and running around doing way more than my paygrade, is slowly getting to me. Lately I have been fantasizing about a nine-to-five job, occasionally working from home. Back in the day I couldn't even imagine sticking to a desk job. But now.. the benefits may outweigh the deficits.
This week, for the first time ever since we have a relationship, we've worked the same shifts. Both morning and evening shifts during the same days. We love it. Even though this will happen just occasionally, we feel like we see each other so much more than we normally do. At work, time pauzes. At home, it continues.
