It’s an odd thought now but just one month ago I was unemployed and had been so for quite some time. I had become accustomed to the days running into one another for so long that I often didn’t even know what day it was. Time was irrelevant to me. I had no set schedule, no place to be and no one to answer to. Just as odd, is how quickly it all came back to me once I rejoined the workforce. Now time is ever present and again I find myself watching the clock, the seconds ticking away until my time is my own. That looking forward to the weekend thing that we all feel when we are working long hours during the week.
For the first time in several years, I got off work and actually went out for some start-the-weekend-right fun. With the wonderful company of my new co-worker and friend Cassie, it was a wonderful evening of sushi, sake, and great conversation. Cassie introduced me to unfiltered sake and I must tell you it was a sweet tasting drink I highly recommend. And if you are in the San Diego area, make a stop at Sushi Deli. The wait was a little long because it is so popular, but well worth it especially if you are hanging out at the bar.
Being back in the daily grind has it’s moments, but its nice to have that rewarding “me time” again, looking forward to the weekend and actually doing something other than staring at my computer screen all weekend until I pick up my daughter. Thanks to my new friend Cassie for sharing this evening with me and showing me that unfiltered sake is amazing.
