i called out of work today, because i realized that i needed a lil' mental health day before i took a permanent work vacation. work is a funny thing, we go every day and spend most of our days there. work becomes even more interesting when you are "fighting" for your livelihood. movement work as they call it. underpaid and overworked, but the cause keeps you going. that and the support from the people around you, the friends who will listen to you go off on rants about civic engagement, the ones who will sit with you quietly through a few after work drinks, the ones who will sit with you late at night at work, or better yet, volunteer. at the end of the day, it's about change.
