Exile

I feel like I’ve been exiled.  Don’t get me wrong. I am thrilled to have a job. Thrilled. 

And normally traveling from Ohio to California will be a Monday through Thursday thing. But right now it seems rather bleak because I am away for 2 weeks on this first go around.  I realize it’s just for training because my hours aren’t actually being charged to a client.

I’m just bored out of my mind.

Right now I’m typing this on my phone on a train destined for Downtown Berkely just because I know they have food there that is within walking distance of the train that is not the hotel food (which I have grown sick of very quickly).

I just feel like I’ve been exiled.  I’m about 3000 miles away from my wife and kids and I miss them something fierce. 

Best Option

Its the best option job wise because its in a field I like that uses my PharmD knowledge and informatics knowledge, but doesn’t require me to have a license to keep the job. 

So if the Ohio Board of Pharmacy decides to ding me at some point and does do something to my RPh in Ohio, at least I still havey PharmD and still have this job.

And there are perks. My cell phone willbe paid for by my company.  My internet is paid for so I can do remote work. They are buying me a new laptop which is something aivr desired for a long while now.  They even let me pick it out which was nice.

I just can’t wait for this week to be over so I can go home and hug my kids.

I am reluctant to propose that things are finally on the upswing for me as every time I do that, the universe has a way of smacking me back down so for now, we’re just going to say that I’m a little more hopeful today about the future than I was this time last week.
