January 31, 2006 – The World On Your Shoulders

Originally posted on LiveJournal.

Ever have one of those days where you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders? I’m usually very good at handling stress, but for some reason today I just let it all get to me (quite a horrific feeling). I woke up at 10 am today too, so it didn’t help that I was behind and extra stressed at work because of it, or that I talked with my boss today about my current status and how things are changing there. No luck on a final distribution of my mom’s estate for another month unfortunately too.

Apparently it can’t be finalized until her estate receives a final distribution from her mom’s estate, so now I’m waiting on my uncle. Didn’t see that one coming, but looks like it’ll be a while before I even have the (financial) option to leave my job. Putting unfair timeframes on myself to finish things seems to be a real problem of mine. If I don’t I always fear I’ll never get anything done. Just need to set smaller, attainable goals I suppose. On another note, got a call from Best Buy saying my camera was damaged beyond repair (well, they quoted me a cost above that of the camera to repair it) and the warranty was voided. I was expecting as much but still held out some hope. At least that’s just one sour memory of an otherwise great weekend, and with my car now fixed it won’t soon happen again. Any suggestions on a new camera to buy? I just need to remember to take things a day at time — and getting a little more sleep during the week can’t hurt either.
