An Everlasting Game of Catch-Up…

I find myself getting more and more detached from the Internet these days, which probably isn’t such a bad thing anymore. I recall the Michigan days of spending hours upon hours on the computer when I got home from my shit-for-nothing job…and I can’t say as though I really miss those days, you know?! Maybe there’s just something about getting paid to sit in front of a computer all day that sort of takes all the fun out of it – when I get home I might logon long enough to check the SPAM in my e-mail, read the latest Penny Arcade and Theater Hopper comics, and more than anything check in on my work e-mail.

But life is good – enough so that I could probably express the last couple of weeks with bullet points if I so desired…

  • I work at least fifty hours a week now, although everyone keeps telling me that I need to back it off – I wish it were that easy, but I feel responsible when thirty-some people don’t have any work to do because I went home early.
  • Nonetheless, I really like my job now. I’ve been put in somewhat of a new position since about June – same pay rate and title, but very different duties – and it’s enjoyable. It took me nearly seven years of driving trucks and unloading stock at all hours of the night to finally find a job that I looked forward to showing up for every day, and by golly here we are now.
  • I have decided, however, that I really need to stop looking for relationships at work because since I started last fall, nothing has really panned out yet…and for the most part, I think that that’s ok. Sure, there are times when I really would like someone to share the time with, but then again life is just really busy right now and part of me knows that it wouldn’t be fair to bring anyone but another workaholic into my world at this point. Maybe I need to just focus on friends at this point – they always seem to end up evolving into more than that anyways, and it’s much easier on me to boot!
  • A new training class starts tomorrow and you know what that means – fresh booty for all my men!
  • I saw The Bourne Supremacy this weekend and was utterly disappointed – good thing the ticket was free when I bought the first movie! It’s not even worth going into details because I thought it was simply horrible. Stay home and watch the first installment again instead…
  • I’m not sure if my book is ever going to get done. I mailed the first third of it up to my sister over a month ago and still have yet to see anything in return, and I was kind of counting on the artwork serving as my motivation to get the rest of it ready for publication. I wish I could draw myself because I hate having to depend on somebody else who obviously couldn’t give a damn about drawing anymore…but then again, I guess that would make me an artist instead of a writer, now wouldn’t it?
  • Along those same lines, she worries me sometimes and I just can’t put my finger on why anymore. I know that you have to let people make their own decisions and learn from their own mistakes, but the preferred scenario I thought would be to learn from somebody else’smistakes. Such is life.
  • I bought myself a birthday present today – a very BIG birthday present!!! As most know, I’ve been paying off bills like mad and finally decided that it was time to do something nice for me, so a few grand later came an early birthday present that will certainly help the time to pass more efficiently! It is to be delivered on Saturday, so I now sit before what will undoubtedly be the longest five days known to man, but if anything at least now I’ve got a high-definition horizon to look forward to…
  • I’m also thinking about getting a dog again, and I know that I talked about it before, but I’m a littlemore serious about it this time. I think it would really help to get me in the swing of exercising again and it might be nice to have somebody other than myself to talk to around home, but I’m still just a bit hesitant simply because I think I’d feel bad not being able to provide room for him or her to run around. I don’t really want a big dog or anything, but I certainly don’t want a small / tiny / show model either – being able to catch a frisbee without going for a ride is definitely a prerequisite! Knowing that I’ll probably be in this same apartment for at least another year, it’s just about enough to sway me towards the negative side, but we’ll see!See you in another two to three weeks, or so my posting record stands thus far…

  1. Oh, I can put my finger on why. I know exactly why, sheesh.
