Tonight marks the end, truly, of 2002. All the vacation days squandered over the holidays have run out. Of course, I’ve spent the last week battling the flu, perhaps I could count those as sick days and regain some free time in ’03.
Wallowing in misery and sleeping most of the day hasn’t been all unproductive.
My house is more organized and somewhat clean.
I got some deliverables out the door for work.
and I did start this whole journal thing up.
I’m not really sure how this is going to play out though. First of all, other folks can read it, and secondly, I used to keep a journal, but upon review – i decided I have nothing worthwhile to say.
In fact, in college, my journals were all about working too hard, getting sick, not being able to pay bills, buying a CD, and perhaps a visit from a friend. That was _all_ four years, with some variety thrown in the mix.
The last thing I want is for this to showcase that my patterns have not changed altogether very much.
End of topic. We’ll see how it goes.
I did sneak away from my home to see Lord of the Rings tonight with my coworkers. It was tough keeping focused on all the battles and eye-candy. A little hokey here and there, and I am still yet to be enamored by digital characters of any sort on screen.
Overall, the movie did make me feel good about spending all this time at home and cleaning, writing and whatnot. At least I don’t feel like I’m missing too dang much out there.
