Five Things for Tuesday, January 12th

1.  Yes, I have been slacking a lot lately with writing.  The long holiday break from work has left a deep-seating seed of discontent at having to work, and since I mainly update while I am at the office, my pissy woe-is-me attitude at being here has affected my desire to write.  Plus its the beginning of year-end, we’re short handed, and I’m already busy on top of it all.  Wah wah wah work is hard.

2.  I am terrible at social interaction with people I don’t know.  All I can focus on is getting through the interaction as swiftly as humanly possible.  Afterwards, I am never sure what was so bad about it that I was trying to hurry it along so much, but when I am in the moment I just want to get away from them as soon as humanly possible.  That’s something I should work on.

3.  I applied for a job today that I really am incredibly excited about.  It fits perfectly with my past job experiences, sounds like something and somewhere I’d have the opportunity for professional growth, and is still local.  I already started my exit interview from my current job in my head.  I need to relax, since there is a strong chance that I won’t get the job for whatever reason, and I don’t want to get too disappointed if I don’t get it.  But it’s nice to know that an opportunity exists in my field that I can feel genuinely excited about.

4.  I’ve gotten good reviews of my novel so far, from friends whose opinions are of course biased but that I believe.  I NEED to edit the damn thing further, flesh out some other things and the like, but I am honestly beginning to believe that it’s publishable.  Wow.

5.  It seems like every morning when I wake up there is a small amount of snow on the ground.  I always look to see if it’s still snowing, but it never is.  I keep wishing that it was snowing, laying another thick blanket of snow on the ground that I’d have to shovel.  I had so much fun doing that normally onerous task with my wife that I’d jump at the chance to do it again.
