Minor rant. Sorry.
I checked on ebay for the Diva Cup and most auctions were going for more than $25.
I'm really bummed that I will not be able to make the doula group meeting this weekend. My sadness is capped with frustration over my job. Without giving anything away, I need to say that I work for a very oppressive man and that I have never been treated so poorly in my workplace. Everyday I go to work, I am forced to question my own principles that are allowing me to continue to be treated this way, because the job pays, at times, very well. I have never allowed myself to put so much value in the dollar.
I am a very hard worker and I am quite intelligent. I know that sounds arrogant, but I have achieved much success in my various employments and I am highly motivated and very driven. The fact that my drive at this time in my life is focused almost solely on school leads to complacency with work, because ultimately, what I am doing now, is not what I will be doing when I finish school. Everyday I work I have to repeat to myself "This is just temporary. Soon you will be your dream."
Instances and dissappointments like this make is worse. So needless to say, something has got to give. Unhappiness is not a good price to pay.
If anyone know of a position open that a crazy tree-hugging hippie who wants her principles back might like, please hook a sister up. If not, thanks for listening to my minor rant.
