So, one night I sat down and made a calender. Just strips of paper held together with a piece of string. On the strips of paper I have noted down all the days from now until June 30th 2010 ànd I've noted the number of days still to go. Every day I cross one off and today, I've got 500 days to go!
Five hundred seems like a lot to me right now. Since I've started less than 40 days have passed and it's going sooooo slow! That might have something to do with the fact that a. there's still 500 days to go, so it seems a lot and b. I haven't been working a lot lately, so the days seem a lot longer than they would if I were out working day after day.
Don't get me wrong: I don't mind the easier times right now, I know it will change soon enough and I will pray for a bit of peace and quiet.
Five hundred days to go. Mind you, it's not as clear cut as that. I might not find myself a job before then, these economic bad times haven't only hit in Europe, or I might actually find a job way before then. Either way, I felt I needed a focus date and that became my 39th birthday.
Five hundred days to go...
