"Do you have any vacation days you can take? A nice break from work and home might be good for you. Maybe a nice Mancation? Just a thought.
I know how you feel. I've been feeling like that for a while here at my job. I'm just not motivated…"
"My wife is a paramedic/fire fighter (associates in para-medicine and fire science) - it took her about 17 months of schooling, and she worked while she got it.
I've been in the same boat as you - close to a degree, hating my job, and getting…"
"B.J., if you haven't already, I'd suggest a few things that helped me as I endure a desk job that's taking me nowhere fast.
1) Find out what "fills my cup" in the short term and do that. For me, it could be as simple as…"

When I get off of them, my sleep is just not productive, I am angry, I am bitter, I start fights, I only find the negative in things. Within a day of getting back on…"
"What problem would this address? More training is good, but I don't see any reason for it to be required. CC permit holders have a lower crime rate than cops, IIRC, and anecdotally it seems cops are pretty poor shots and are also…"
"My pleasure! Glad you like'em! I tried to offer up a bit of regional variety.
"This one is, of course, from Cuba, where a girl from Guantanamo is a "Guantanamera"... AND, she's probably a country girl -…"
"Some people move in together with the intent of eventually having a traditional marriage with a priest and/or formal ceremony (etc.)
Others move in together as a transitional step towards eventual / inevitable de facto and de jure marriage…"
