Lately, I have been struggling to find a balance in life.

Not concentrating too much on work can be hard, considering how much overtime I've been putting in. I feel like I have been fighting to defend my job, and a part of me wonders if it is even worth the trouble.

I've told myself I will only keep up this number of overtime hours until the end of the month- then I need to get my work life and my personal life balanced out again. I can defend until then, then I need to put my foot down. But, due to the "fight" I am worried that if I show weakness, I will have lost before the bell. But how important is this, anyway?

No one is going to thank you for killing yourself at work- and I've practically lost the "fight" already- merely because of my age. Apparently being in your late 20's is too young for HR in Germany (or at least in my current company, since I've gotten contacted by headhunters lately).

I have to concentrate more on the bigger goal- staying happy, healthy, and balanced.

And- as soon as Broom has more job clarity, we are starting insemination & then I will be off for a year and a half anyways.

So- in the immortal words of South Park (thank God I can't remember which character used to say this) "Screw you guys, I'm going home!"

My life is more important than tipping the scales on what is balanced and what isn't. I believe I can have a successful career, and a life.
