25895 How to stay sane in a rut
Alright lads,

Having a bit of trouble getting into the daily grind - it feels like all I do is work, eat and sleep. My jobs total up to about 65+ hours a week on average.

I'm trying to save up for next year, as I've given myself until September to make some sort of decision. There's light at the end of the tunnel, but the stasis right now seems a bit unbearable.

Been getting angry at myself for not having enough time to spend with the missus and my friends.

My work environments are both skeleton staffed, with teamwork being important for our own safety. I'm not getting withdrawn from my co-workers, but I can feel my brains getting turned into the hive mind, and that really scares me.

I don't want to isolate myself from the people around me, but I'm scared that if I don't, then I won't have enough money put away for myself when I do need to make a change.

(for clarification's sake, any decision I make in September will be more of the same - I've applied to loads of shipping companies for cadetships. I'm 25, and I need to have money put away to take the pay hit during training)

How do you deal with getting turned into a husk of your former self through supplanting your self for money?

You gotta have a lot of goals. Small and big ones.

Eyes on the prize m8.

September is only nine months away. Nine months seems like a long time looking forwards, but it seems like nothing in the rear view mirror.

Think back to March of this year, nine months ago. I don't know about you, but that time seems to have flashed by. It seems like last Christmas was practically yesterday. Nine months is 3% of your life so far. If you live to be 75, it'll be 1% of your entire life. You'll spend a greater proportion of your life in the bathroom. If you can keep that in mind, you'll be grand.

As regards your social life, I'd suggest making an effort to invite people over to your place. You don't have to be out pubbing and clubbing to be sociable.
