Further evidence that quitting is sometimes a good thing - Tia

Per usual I'm on the road. A lot of what I did today was like what I do most days. Reconcile. Count Pills. Read medical charts. Two things made today different. 

1. Daniel de Bourg - I spent all day listening to his music. I must have played his version of "Sure Thing" 30 times. It's not just that he's fine. It's that he's fine and his voice sounds like...ummm....His voice is sick. For the life of me I can't understand why he didn't win X-Factor UK. 

I split most of my 8 hour day listening and re-listening to his stuff on Youtube. While I did take an hour or so to listen to Beyonce's new album, (jury is still out. review is coming once there's a verdict.) the bulk of the day belonged to Daniel and his make-me-think-bad-things-thus-making-me-perpetually-have-to-repent voice.

The other thing that was different: 

2. Hope - Maybe it's the Quitter Challenge. Maybe it's just the thought that I can do something that I really love for a living and not be chained to a desk/plane/hotel room for the rest of my life. I don't know exactly what it is, but I have hope. I have hope that I can do what I love, whatever that looks like.

But until dream job becomes my day to day, I'm stuck in hotels in random cities, playing with my phone, rambling on about my odd dinner choices, my love of British musicians and my need to get my eyebrows waxed. 

P.S. I know you can't see the bathroom. But trust me, it's huge. Real talk, you can do two cartwheels from the sink to the door.
