On my way to work the other day I was going through a mental list of things I’m going to miss and not miss while I’m away. I know some of the things I’m going to list may seem silly, but I want to write them down anyway. I want to put them out there so a year or even a month down the road I can look back and hopefully laugh.
Things I’m going to miss.
I love my family and I’m especially going to miss my mom. She is an angel and (I have tears just thinking about this) am going to miss her the most.
No not the show, but my real friends.
I love Houston and will miss it.
I love my bed and can spend countless hours, hell even entire days in it.
- TV & DVR
I wouldn’t spend countless hours or even entire days in my bed with out this duo. I’m a huge TV junkie and am not ashamed to admit it.
- TV SHOWS
Are we ever going to find out who the mother is on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER? Are Meredith and Derek ever going to have a baby on GREY’S ANATOMY? Are Kurt and Blaine going to end up together on GLEE? Ahhh the questions can go on and on.
I’m addicted to chips. I literally eat chips with just about everything.
- HOT SAUCE
Luckily I’m starting in Latin America so I’m sure I will find some great ones down there.
- CELL PHONE
I live with my cell phone by my side 24/7. I’m not taking a cell phone with me. I do not see the purpose of it and will have to adjust with out it.
Things I’m not going to miss.
Houston has got to have some of the worst traffic in the world. Commuting to downtown for work is hell. Sometimes I can get there in 15mins and sometimes it can take up to an hour. Sometimes even 2 hours if a dead body is found in the middle of the freeway.
I’m not going to miss dealing with customers anymore. I’m also not going to miss having to deal with management about my productivity or quality.
- WORKING SATURDAYS
For the past 5.5 years I have worked every single Saturday. The only way I was off is if I was sick, it fell on a holiday or I used vacation time. It’s going to be nice to enjoy my Saturdays the way I want to from now on.
- SPENDING MY DAYS OFF DOING NOTHING IN MY ROOM
Now I will be able to spend days doing nothing but around the world.
- THE ROUTINE
Even though I don’t do much anymore the last few months have just been one big routine. Every week follows the same pattern as the last. I’m looking forward to every week being different.
I know I will adjust to life on the road and not even think about these things. I know I will look back and probably just laugh at this. Who knows maybe months into my trip I will miss my job. I am so excited to breakaway and go on this adventure, but damn it is scary. I’m about to leave everything I know behind and go out to the unknown. I am ready though and can’t wait to breakaway.
