Sailing away?

Hot Diggety Dog! I received an email yesterday from one of the major cruise lines requesting an interview by Skype tomorrow (Nov. 13th) for a Youth Staff position. Okay okay it’s a pre-screening interview but an interview none the less. Here’s my chance to see the world!! My bags are packed, where do I sign? All I need is a camera, a dress and some clean underwear. My uniforms, room & board and food will be covered. I’ve spent most of the day researching what life on board will be like. Here’s the highlight: (most of the time) on days when you are at port you are free to go out and explore. Here’s the part I am not so excited about: having one or more roommates in a cabin the size of my bathroom (okay I’m exaggerating here, my bathroom is not that big). I am a bit of a loner and being around people for any length of time (other than at work) drains me. Will I be able to find a spot to be alone and decompress? Perhaps this is my chance to live the dorm life that I missed out on. Here’s my other concern: What about Handy Manny? According to the email, the position is 5 to 6 months long followed by 6 to 8 weeks off. How can I leave my beloved Handy Manny for 6 months at time? The book I’ve been reading has told me that anything I could wish for is mine for the taking, I just have to ask for it. Guess what I wished for? I wished to travel but should have said, “I wish to travel with Handy Manny”.

Trying to think of something funny or deep to describe myself. I got nothing.. My nest is now empty leaving lots of stones unturned. I'm searching, I'm seeking. I'm sad and I'm weeping.

    Here’s to smooth sailing, and the wisdom to know what to do if the wind changes.
