My enthusiasm for the workday tends to come to an abrupt end at about 2 pm, I've noticed. I'd like to work from 10 am to 2 pm every day and get paid for full time. That would be swell.
Things are nice and slow around the old workplace right now, which is cool because I can keep all my stuff totally done and squared away, but is kind of rough in that I feel bored and I know there are so many things I could be doing for other areas of my life. I really need to go clothing shopping, for example. I never want to shop after work. I hate to shop these days. Shopping for clothing online doesn't work too well for me. I have to try stuff on. Picky picky picky.
Things are hopping in my career. I have the old company trying to lure me back. I love those guys, but I think this new company is a better move for me career wise, so I am trying to offically defect without burning my bridge there. I just declined an offical job offer in order to stay where I'm at. There was some crazy talk about possibly relocating me again, this time to Baton Rouge. I don't want to do that right now, but I may want to in the future, so I don't want to alienate them. I guess having too many jobs is a premium problem to have. Much better than the alternative.
I am considering moving when my lease comes up to get closer to the new building. My facility is moving to a swanky new campus. It's just opulent. I love it. The commute is killing me though. I'd like to feel the joy of a 5 minute drive to work instead of the ridiculous gridlock nightmare that I am all too frequently subjected to. I love my apartment and I dread letting people move my stuff and possibly scratch my furniture, but the new building is farther away from wher eI live, so the commute would get even worse. I'm sure I can find a great apartment near the new building. Hope so anyway.
You know, I kind of hate to update the blog here lately, because I realize I am just blogging the little details of my life. I need some decent topics. I should gather up a hat full of topics and draw one at random each time I update so there will be some direction or some point to this.
I like to read blogs because I'm a people watcher and I like to get a slice of someone else's existence to see how other people move through their lives. I guess there's an audience for this sort of thing.
There are many adventures for me to pursue here in Texas. There are lots of things to do and see here. One of these weekends I'm going to go over to Austin and check it out. I also want to go to Galveston one of these days, maybe in the spring. I hear it is very nice. I'll also go see San Antonio at some point. All of these places are fairly close to where I live and could be a nice day trip or weekend trip. I am planning to go see the hill country and check out the fields of blue bells this spring. Ever since I moved here, I feel like I am on vacation, so I have not had the urge to roam.
There's a whole big world of things you haven't seen or done. If you haven't been all over your state... shaaaaaame on you. hehe. If you've never been out of your state, stop reading now and go make a plan. You can't just live your life out in one spot and miss the rest of the world.
They say we only use a small percentage of our brain's capacity. And average people only use a tiny percentage of their potential for adventure and travel. We're missing stuff, all the time.
Life is endless in it's possibilities.
