Who said I couldn't multi-task? Well, today I managed to spend half the day avoiding work and now I am doing both at the same time.
Have been thinking a lot about work lately... mostly what I will be putting into my portfolio. I feel like some of my time over the past three years was not best spent, and some of my work lacks a certain creative flair. I feel like it is because my current work life is so structured and that I am constantly being told how to do my job but at the end of the day, I am responsible for my work, no one else.
Thinking I may re-create some of the jobs I did, and spend the time and energy into making them mini pieces of art for my portfolio.
Feeling completely sucked in by Facebook also - and probably need to delete my account soon, or soon-ish. Working on a computer constantly, the temptation is too strong to keep the window open... just in case someone comes online to chat with or to keep up to date with what is going on. I don't think any of my friends are as glued to it as I am - I think they have lives away from working at a desk for the better part of the day. This is where my thoughts end up going back to being a dog walker.
Have some serious pain in the right wrist. Assuming it is RSI as I can't think of anything else I've been doing to make it hurt so much. Do you strap a wrist with RSI as you would a sprain? Or do you discontinue whatever you're doing for a few days just to give it a break?
Just finished reading The Alchemist actually... I knew there was something I wanted to write about. A friend recommended it, with the exclamation that read at different points in your life, the book will always say something different each time. I have now read it one time, and I must admit, spoke profoundly to me in regards to where I am in my life at the moment. I think it touches everyone in some way because in the end, I think we all want the same thing and we are all at different stages to achieving it - the book details what we are looking for and then one boy's journey from beginning to end.
It's a very light, easy read. I managed to restrain myself and span it over three nights (which is a huge achievement for me - if I enjoy a book I tend to buckle down and read it in one singular sitting).
