It appears that I've come to a crossroads. (Tangentially funny: when I searched "crossroads" on weheartit, all the results were pictures of that award-winning, beautifully acted Britney Spears film of a few years back. Which, of course, I love.) I've been at my new job for about a month now. And while I am SO enjoying the fact that my life is no longer ruled by law school, I'm having trouble adjusting.
there is no reason for this picture except that I think it's funny.
I've never really had a real job. I was in college, and then I had internships, and then I worked retail, and then I was in law school, so this 9-5 thing is all kinds of new for me. And it's been hard. This can be evidenced by the fact that I rolled into work at about 9:45 this morning in a ratty sweater and jeans after staying up too late last night eating leftover chinese food and watching Criminal Minds reruns. I mean, really?
Right now, my bedroom is still in the process of being painted, which means that my house is still a mess, and I feel all kinds of chaotic. I'm tired all the time, and I feel like I never accomplish everything I want to, either at work or at home, and frankly, it's overwhelming.
So my question to you, people who are successfully navigating adulthood: how do you achieve work-life balance?
