Happy Birthday to me!
It has been a year since my wonderful self-examination post called “Thirty-Three“, where I said I needed to do the following:
- Stop being a lazy shit and get my work ethic back.
- Stop being a lazy shit and exercise to get my waistline back.
- Stop being a lazy shit and find a new job that engages and excites me.
- Stop being a lazy shit and finish some of these projects around the house.
So how did I do?
Well, I can say that somewhat I have gotten my work ethic back. I’ve been working smarter and harder and not letting the corporate jackassery get me down. I still need to do more, but my problems now are related to item three and that I have no passion for my current job.
I have occasionally exercised, but more importantly I completely kicked caffiene and sodas. I drink only water and Crystal Light now. I’m also sort of eating better. I have lost weight, but not enough.
If you have been reading my blog, you know that item three is now a self-fulfilling prophesy. I will get a new job because the contract is over and I have to get a new job. So, there is that. And I am trying very hard to make sure I only pursue jobs that I will enjoy.
And lastly… well… there are still projects around the house that need doing. But I’m not going anywhere (especially in this housing market), so I have time.
Looking ahead to Thirty-Four, I want to get an awesome job, one I love going to. And I want to write more, so I’ll be making more of a concerted effort to do the NaNoWriMo this year. And that’s really all I want out of the year to come. It doesn’t seem so much to ask…
