In Which She Slaps Herself For Being Ambitious

Work consumes my days so I don't want to waste too much free time talking about it.

Today I actually had the phrase,"You can rest when you're dead" go through my head several times. I don't want to be that person.

I ran into my equivalent position in another section today and she is four months into her job and said it just got better. She said sometimes she gets home, stands in her kitchen and cries. I wish I could but I never cry in front of Keegan. And if I save it for later it won't come out. I had this similar experience with the divorce last year. I don't have any more business trips until August so I am hoping that helps me get more organized. Then again Harvard starts next Wednesday.

It's a good thing my personal life kicks ass or I'd be in trouble.
