A Most Relaxing Weekendtony tony https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/aa9bbdf8f1e6bbf534778ecea7c0c925?s=96&d=mm&r=g
This past weekend was one of the most fun and relaxing weekends in a while. First off, no traveling required. Travel is stressful to me. I’m an owl of habit. I like repeating and optimizing. I do not enjoy waiting in Newark airport after my flight was delayed 3 times. In addition to a 3.5 hour car drive to Newark (one way). And I did not enjoy the 18+ hour drive to ???… and the 18+ drive back. I think Dallas is far enough…
What I enjoy is a weekend with friends at home… or surrounding locations. This weekend was exactly that; it was simple. I met several of my friends I haven’t seen in a few months. We talked, ate, and played games. I received belated birthday gifts: posters, video games, graphic design books, and best buy/apple gift cards. I went to best buy, looked for an hour, couldn’t find anything, went back home.
In my free time, I enjoy becoming better at my craft. Everyday I get better. My previous employer didn’t encourage me to find out how good I actually am. My new job has far fewer limitations. The main restriction, being forced to do the jobs of 4 people, is removed. I learn and grow as I want in the field I love. That’s bliss in a job.
I wanted to point out I’m well rested. When you do the thing you love it doesn’t feel like work. Hopefully y’all will find that in your lives as well.
