Journal Move….

Boy Wonder ran across this new little program that lets you put a journal on pretty much any site. After a bit of tweaking and modification, I managed to get it on my site. I liked it so much, I went and transcribed every journal entry I had on "the other site" to this one. I’m really happy about that, I’ve never really liked having my story on someone else’s site. It’s just weird.

So, a new journal begins. Not so much a new chapter just new software, picking up where I left off. I’ll probably tweak this one more but for now it works well. I did remove the little smiley’s that I had on my old one for these nifty "mood" pictures (that I put together). After spending several hours doing it, I am not liking them and I’ll probably change them later.

As for life, lets see. I was briefly … and I do mean briefly … reading over entries from the past prior two years. Lets just say, I spend to much time stressing on things but then I have my reasons and well, it all pans out in the end. So, last year around this time, the holidays where my favorite topic. That isn’t any different this year. I’m not looking forward to them at all. But I came to a realization, it is simply because I am somewhat alone during this time.

I miss the big parties I’d either attend, throw or helped in creating. I miss thinking about someone and looking forward to spending a few days with them. I miss the companionship that we all seek during this sometimes joyous time. Alas, that isn’t changing this year though I had hoped it would. Next year, we’ll try again. I will say that if things continue like they are, that shouldn’t be a problem.

Yes, things aren’t nearly as bad as they have been in my life. Work continues to suck and each day I simply can’t wait to say those words … I QUIT … and walk out the door. I did come to the realization that I love what I do, I enjoy it very much and find that since I can’t do the things I enjoy at work even though that is my job, I am doing it here, for my "big" project and in other ways. So, that is something to some degree. Work on the other hand, I have to deal with until I can say those wonderful words. Honestly, if my boss would leave, get fired or well … just be gone, things would improve. But that’s another entry for later.

Right at the moment I am feeling oddly bored yet energetic. I want to do something but I just haven’t figured out what. I am in that creative mood and really would like to toy and tinker with something interesting. Work on all fronts doesn’t sound like fun, though my "big" project is fun I just don’t want to over do it and make it in to a chore which it feels like some days. I cleaned my little home office and that felt good. I posted a whole slew of stuff on my forums and need to post some more. I put down a new ‘To Do’ list for home which still needs stuff added, I’ve been wanting to do that for a long time.

So now what? Something web related would be fun, I just haven’t figured out what. I’ve kind of done all that I can think of to my site right now (besides fixing some bugs). Oh well, I’ll figure something out.

That’s about it right now. I am going to try to go back to my old routine of doing a Monday update on here. I miss doing that but life got so busy I had to stop. I’m going to try to do it again because it was fun.

So that’s all I got…. Until later.
