Having a hard time with work. Called off the first two days this week due to being ill and calling off the rest of the week because it'll mean driving 5 hours today to work a 10 hour shift today as well and the same shifts the rest of the week. That's not a crazy issue though, I enjoy the overtime pay. Being on the road 100% of the time for work is what is starting to take it's toll on me. Even when I'm home it's for 2 days most at a time. It's hard to have any real hobbies or make forward progress elsewhere from hotel rooms. It's hard to maintain friendships from hotel rooms. Also being a single mid twenties adult it's hard to find a meaningful romantic relationship from hotel rooms. I have about 2.5k in saving. Isn't great but has me debating what my next move is. I don't mind the work at all, it just gets harder to leave home to head back out on the road for 2-6 weeks at a time every time I come back.

Any advice or opinions would be appreciated. Hope everyone has a pleasant and productive day.
