Sidetracked



In a rut

The only good thing that has come out of my awful job is it makes me want to be more creative in my free time. Which is actually pretty awesome. Have I got around to doing anything creative in my free time? No. But I will.

Dave’s been in L.A. all week. And I’ve been trying to muster up the willpower to quit my job. I suck at quitting jobs. I don’t know if it’s fear of not finding another one or not wanting to disappoint anyone or being a push over or low self esteem that’s holding me back. It’s probably a combination of all of those things.

I try to remind myself that this job does not define me, which brings me back to wanting to be more creative in my free time. It’s cyclical.

I’m looking forward to next weekend. But I’ll tell you about that later. I’ve got to ration this stuff out.

    Unfortunately, you must be a subscriber to get It and It‘s only available – once your promotional 6 month grace period ends – to top-tier members. Those who neglect to maintain their membership must settle for it and, unfortunately, it doesn’t have the access to “easier” that It has; it can only get “harder”.

    No, I’m joking. Of course it gets easier. It’s so easy, in fact, I could puke.

    Good luck with the More Creative Freetime plan, that really sounds like you’re on to something; I just sent a fax this morning that should get be started on that very same plan. I’ll post details later should anything really come of it. I hope so.

    I keep thinking I need to do some sort of outside of work activity. Such as volunteering somewhere or taking some kind of class like one night a week. I dunno. Any suggestions?

    One of my friends here in Austin invited me to join a Double Dutch group. You could start one in Chicago! Kidding.

    You could volunteer at an animal shelter and play with puppies all day. Or you could take cooking classes. Or learn an instrument.

    I’m planning on getting my violin fixed up to play agian. But I’ve been planning on doing that for years.

    I suggest you volunteer in some smooth-looking English profs’ class and have a one-night-stand with a different student each week. …but, that’s just what I’m looking to do.
