I was one with the wild this weekend. While enjoying the company of my friends (from college that I get to see only every 3-4 months) out in Viroqua, WI, a raccoon strolls into the barnyard acting quite peculiar. Mind it was around 11am and the raccoon wandering around the yard trying to pick a fight with the dogs (I hope the dogs are okay and unscathed. We don't need a Cujo on our hands). It was also dragging its leg. This Raccoon was huge! We thought at first he was a stray dog until we got a better look. It didn't even phase him as we shot a shotgun. I tried scaring it away by turning on my car with a remote starter (I wasn't going out there, Nooo Way) . When the birds started dive bombing it, we accepted the thought that something is definitely wrong with it. It took 5 shots to take the thing down. He didn't even run after the first one hit him in the butt.
I am an animal lover. I was the one that tried to wait to see if it was okay, and it would run away. I am not a hunter and have not been able to get this image out of my head. But I do know when something is wrong, actions have to be made. I am sad the lil guy was sick, but there was nothing to do but take him out of his misery.
Now if only I can use that train of thought and direct it to my life! I want so bad to be motivated to do endless job searches, but every time I start, I get myself overwhelmed. Just like "Dustin" I put so much pressure on myself to write the perfect cover letter, to find the perfect job, to send out x number of resumes a week. I get so sick of the job search by the time I have Careerbuilder.com typed in.
Now if I had some followers, I'd ask....Should I go back on my ADD meds? I think I should, but then again they make me sort of cranky and unsocial....What do you "all" think?
