THE PLANS HAVE CHANGED.
So only one day into Nanowrimo, I had a major melt-down. Really bad. Like 2-3 hours of K and Kol talking me down, and plenty of DBZ therapy to soothe my hurts. It has boiled down to the fact that I can not
physically handle my job for much longer. I am falling apart at the seams, and I'm sure people have noticed but I have been a wrecking ball of butthurt and insecurity and insanity over the past two months (I am sorry). So, Nanowrimo is now Jobowrimo. The new goal is 1k a day of writing novel/tags, and the other 700 words has to be in some way related to job-hunt, whether it is logging my progress, doing exercises, or god forbid, writing resumes and cover letters. LIKE A PIMP.The goal is a new job by December 15th.
It almost doesn't matter WHAT, except it does, cause I want to pick something that makes me happy and I don't want to do worse than I am now. It is really clear though. At this point, I need to get out of Macy's or I will suffer a major breakdown.
My mom sent me a book called What Color Is Your Parachute?
, and that has become my project for the first week of this month. My perpetual whinging has been "BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WANT TO DO AS
A CAREER", and we are going to fix that NOW.
Here is one of the exercises I did today, and after that, one of the recommended career quizzes I did. Please feel free to comment or correct me, or make observations that I've overlooked.

This quiz came from the Princeton Review. It was recommended by this page on the Parachute website. ( Princeton Review Career Quiz )
