Its been a long time since I updated this blog and I thought I'd better put something up before people think I'm dead.
My issue with this blog is so; I post my technical knowledge now at Fliquid Studios and my Green / Eco / Sustainability at Sustain Myself so I don't really know what to write here anymore. I do have a fair bit to write about from the news or a socialist activism point of view but don't really think many people like reading my complaints and arguments about how much better I could rule the world if I got the chance.
I recently started working at a new company after a potential business venture worked out to be too difficult for me in the current economic climate. The company I work for is fantastic and I am playing a fairly pivotal part in their moving forward in the market. My problem is that there are so many things that need to be done for this company and I simply can't sit back and wait for others to do it because there aren't any others. I could do nothing, but I can't do that when I know there is work to be done. I have also put forward a helluva lot of changes that I think are necessary and that means even more work, so I am absolutely flat out during business hours and I don't generally get online in the evenings (its the last thing I want to do). This means that its getting harder and harder for me to commit the time to a blog (or blogs).
I have started at the Gym though and three times a week I crowbar myself away from work to spend 40mins kicking my own ass. Yesterday I burned 220cal on the bike there which I thought was cool (of course my lunch was about 1200cals but thats a story for another day).
While I am enjoying my job (for the first time in a long time) I feel less energetic about other things. I haven't been spending much time with my fish lately and that upsets me as my fish seem to relax me and give me my own thing to concentrate on, away from everything else.
Have you ever thought that this is not where you planned to be? I had high hopes for myself, I was going to establish myself somewhere, somehow and I just haven't managed to do it. While I have been extremely fortunate in my life, I wish I had worked harder when I was younger and had less financial commitments so that I would be able to have more behind me at this stage of my life.
I was looking at houses for sale in Tasmania today and found this. I love it. Look at the view! And its more than $100k cheaper than the house we have bought. What an awesome lifestyle change that would be. I'd have to commute to Sydney, but what's a few hours flying everyday?
On a final note, I am more in love with my daughter every day and although she tests me so much, I think she's my main reason for staying sane.
Over and Out.
