time Work Diaries

The freedom that comes.

I find that whenever I get to go home early from work (around 1 or 2 pm), I become so excited now. Just knowing that I have the rest of the day to myself makes me ten times happier….probably because it seems that lately I really lack a lot of time to myself. No real free time–the past two weeks or so I feel like all I do is work all day, come home, cook dinner, shower, and then go to bed. Rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat. I have been putting off a lot of things lately because of such a rushed routine.

I realize that probably once I find a real 9-5 job that things won’t be much different than they are right now. Granted, if I find myself working at an office again, I won’t be using as much physical muscle then. I’ll be using more of my intellect, which I guess will be a needed change.

Work and free time.

I haven’t kept up with news much at all lately, due to the odd hours for work. No time to watch Donny Deutsch at night anymore. No time to even tune into Celebrity Apprentice on Thursday evenings.

When I have free time now, I feel like I should be doing something else besides relaxing. I like being kept busy with work because then it does not allow for my mind to wander and ponder about a lot of things that distress me.

I would enjoy free time more if I knew I were being paid for it, but I’m not. I’m trying to figure out now if I should seek more work with flexible hours or I should just enjoy my time off now. I have had too much time off in the past four months though; it’s about time I get back into the swing of work.

life time


Time has passed by rather quickly, but I guess it only feels that way. Time is always constant; it’s what happens to each one of us that causes for time to feel like it’s going by slowly or quickly.

I know I have a tendency to say this (and maybe it’s pretty cliche as well), but time goes by so quickly yet so slowly. Today I just realized that February is already drawing to a close; but, when thinking back on what happened at the start of the month, I feel like way too much time has passed since then (meaning, it feels like it was so long ago).

This next month already feels like it will fly by; soon it will be summer again and 2008 will be on its way out the door, too.
