Darkest Before the Dawn

Is this really true? I've looked outside in the past, but it never looks any different.

I've been awake. All. Night. Long.

I just spent the night, thinking about life and other things. Paul says I think about things too much. I'm still trying to figure out why this is such a bad thing.

I've been giving a lot of consideration to travel nursing. I could buy a house and use it as my "home base" while I went out and did assignments. My brother could stay in my house while I was away and tend to the dog. Contracts can be from 6 weeks to 6 months. I can go out, work, make ungodly amounts of money, then come home for a few weeks before going out to do it again. Alaska, Hawaii, the Virgin Islands, Australia. I could go anywhere.

So, what is keeping me here?

Whether it's true or not depends on the atmospheric conditions at the time, and how you define dawn. I could go into a long speel about why it's true and untrue, but don't really feel like it now. I would like to hear more about this travel nursing, though, is sounds interesting.
