T-minus 12 days and counting until I start my new job.
It’s funny… after almost two months off work the concept of “free time” has really ceased to exist for me. I still read a lot and game a lot, but without any kind of real work going on it all seems so… pointless. You know you’re bored when watching reruns of ER and Star Trek is a highlight of your day.
This might sound like a complete 180 after reading the previous paragraph, but believe it or not I am not one of the many people who define themselves through their job. I’ll admit that during my last job I was very concerned that I was doing exactly that, and that if I lost it I’d feel… lost or something along those lines. Spending four years with one company at the age of twenty-five is a little unusual.
I’ve used a lot of this time to get things done around the house. I don’t have any kids so this is NOT an opportunity for a “Mr. Mom” joke 🙂 I semi-winterized our house, cleaned up our DVD and game storage, alphabetized and indexed my comic book collection into a database, cleaned up my old cameras, fought a pitched battle with excess phosphates in our fish tank (still ongoing), and taught myself the basics of Linux (Ubuntu Linux rocks). Please note this list isn’t a complete one, just the basic crap I can remember filling time with over the last two months.
And now I am bored with this post.
