I was walking home from work today thinking about this weekend and my upcoming fishing trip. It occured to me (not the first time) that I'd MUCH rather be retired already (I'm 23) and just fish. Then I thought there had to be other people like me that just put up with the week to get to the weekend, no matter what you like to do. At this point, it made me wonder what everyone else does and how they cope. I'm in the Navy and work/live on the USS Pennsylvania (SSBN 735), a nuclear ballistic missile submarine homeported in Bangor, WA. This leaves me with only a few months a year to do what I really enjoy. It makes it hard to sit through work doing the same thing I do at sea wishing I could be outside casting to rising cuttthroat on a river in the mountains. So, what do you do and how do you cope with the week?
