This is the last Tagxedo for a while, I promise (but isn’t it cute with the lightning bolt shape and all? So apropos for Hete Bliksem):
Makes me want to redo the whole blog so I can incorporate this into the header somehow (which I can’t do well with this blog template). But that will have to wait for another time.
The weather here this weekend is absolutely perfect. No humidity, temps in the mid-20s, just the odd little cloud in the sky.But enjoying the weather will have to wait for another time.
I have a 2000 word paper due Sunday night at midnight, Alberta time. Which means I have till 2 am Ontario time. (Yay?).
Words written so far: 0
Words written in my head so far: about 173.
It’s times like these that I really question why I thought going back to school was a good idea. I mean, I already have a great job. It’s not like I couldn’t find something else (cheaper, less intense, and without the pressure of assignment deadlines, cheaper, yet still intellectually stimulating…did I mention cheaper?) to occupy my mind.
Then those 2 little words pop into my mind: career insurance. Oh yeah, that.
I flash back to the recent histories of some of my friends (who thought they were “set” for life, at their work, their “dream” jobs): passed over for promotion, or demoted with a change in upper management, or their position vanishes entirely, with a change in company direction.
Nothing in life is certain. So back to the books I go!
I have promised myself that if I make good progress, I will take a short break to go for a walk in the glorious outside, to pick up something for lunch.
So with that rewarding thought, I bid you adieu. And please enjoy your weekend, so I may live vicariously through you!by
