Anyone who was worried after reading my rantings last night, please don’t. I’m fine. It was just a sad moment that I wrote down. It’s true I’m thinking the uncomplicated life of a server might be the way to go for a few months. But I’ve been thinking that for a month or so now and I haven’t done anything rash like quit my job. And, the truth is, no matter how much I think about it, talk about it or blog about it, I might not get a job as a server.

I’m one of those cautious people. I’m probably cautious to a fault in fact. I won’t quit my job until I find a new one. And even if I do find a new one I’m not likely to quit my job. You know that whole “a bird in the hand is worth two in a bush” thing.

And I wouldn’t even be considering the life of a server again if it weren’t guaranteed to be temporary. I’m planning on doing something new and going someplace new. So, everything is temporary right now. I know it isn’t happening very soon, but it’s always a surprise to me how quickly time passes. If I don’t go in 2011 then I’ll go in 2012. So, working at my current job is temporary. Just like being a server would be temporary.

Hell, moving here in the first place back in 2005 was supposed to be temporary. I had a seasonal position with the company and I was going to find a journalism job somewhere else in the meantime. I was going to go somewhere exciting full of new people and potential boyfriends. I had my eye on Colorado Springs in fact. I wanted to work at Focus on the Family and find me a Christian man.

And then life happened. I couldn’t find a different job. And I got promoted here. So I committed to stay another year. And then I stayed another year. And then I got shuffled around. And then another year. And then more shuffling. And so on – and here we are.

Or, here I am.

And I’m not awesome at the moment. But I’ll be fine. And, if I decide to be a waitress, that will be fine. I promise. But right now…meh.

    It always surprises me too how quickly time passes – it just seems to get faster each year. Who was it who said “Life is what happens while you’re making other plans”? This resonates with me more and more. But I’ve always found future planning difficult – you sound like you have far more ambition and drive than me.

      I think it’s funny that your response to my idea of quitting to become a waitress is to think that I’m ambitious and driven. Hilarious. And thank you.
