Well, I'm coming up to my year and a day. I'm thinking about doing a dedication ceremony- in the Scott Cunningham style- although I don't really describe myself as a solitary witch. I plan on training for initiation into a coven soon- I just gotta work up the courage to ask.

Well anyway- I would rather read and study about Wicca and magic than go to work. To the point where I don't go to work. Luckily, I have a flexible work schedule and I work away from the office many days out of the week so my boss doesn't know, but I've been doing a lot of ditching lately.

Am I getting obsessed? Is this unhealthy? Or is this just part of the natural cycle of things now that I'm out of the basics (which I've known for much longer than a year and a day- but this is the first time I've been able to practice straight without stopping or skipping rituals for months at a time). Maybe this job isn't the right job for me?

If anyone has any ideas, or if this has happened to you before, please let me know! Any advice at all will be helpful!

Thankfully I went through this phase in my youth, where ditching high school responsibilities for the practice of a new religion didn't seem that serious. But, there is a point, where you must look at yourself and live up to both your mundane and spiritual responsibilities. It's unfortunate that I didn't take that look at myself until my senior year of H.S. but I'm a better person for it today.

I realized that if I studied hard in college, then worked hard in my mundane life it made me excel to a plane in my spiritual life I would never have gotten to without the hard work and effort in the mundane.

You'll eventually (and it sounds like it's already started) get to a point where you realize that any job where you can make your own hours is the best job in the world, even if it includes scrubbing toilets.

Just work yourself into more festivals and get out with the people to learn these intermediate lessons about life and living Pagan.

Thank you for the post, and BTW I love Avacados...mmmm guacamole.
