I struggle with where to put the apostrophe in "two weeks’ notice"

in comfort, work

July 4, 2008 – Friday

I supposed the requisite “Happy Independence Day” is in order. But also let’s celebrate my independence from the Rock Bottom.

That’s right. After more than six years, finally, it’s time to leave. The reason, I have been telling people, is that I’m going back to school in January so I want to have a little time to have a life before that.

But do I need a reason? How about I don’t wanna work so much? Maybe having a few days off a week kicks so much ass I can’t do it justice with words…and I fancy myself a writer.

I was talking to a friend from Rock Bottom today and I told her the money wasn’t really making or breaking me so I didn’t want it anymore. And she said something like so many people are in the rat race to make more money just to make more money. And that’s about it. Quality of life suffers and it’s just bad news.

Now don’t get me wrong. I love having money to spend the way I want and I enjoy being comfortable. But who has time to spend it when you’re working all the time? And I know damn well that working two jobs isn’t comfortable. You can get used to it but it’s never what you want.
I used to think I loved to be busy and I do still thrive in a stressful environment, but I know now that in this case, absence doesn’t make the heart grow fonder.
