The Geek Icon

A whinge.

So Far Off to a Bad Start

Ray Bradbury's advice to writers is to write your loves and hates. And while I can't say I truly hate my job, I was poking around and read through my last post on this site (greivously over 8 months ago) and felt a wave of anger.

Partly the anger was at myself. Why did I let myself do exactly the opposite of what I meant to do? How did I end up getting sucked in to even more work stress? Getting hitched, spinning certificate, new career, garden — all those things have been sloppily placed on the back burner for, yes, that's right! more work responsibility, more stress, working on the weekends, working late, blah, blah, blah.

Honestly, I don't blame my work.

The question I have is, what's wrong with me? Why do I put all my focus into something thats just my day job, a way to pay the bills. The things I value have all been playing second fiddle.

2011 has not gone as planned. I hope I don't waste the rest of it.

Time to get mad and reclaim something for myself.
