Conan the King (Conan the Barbarian)


As I posted last night, because at the moment I have a pretty bare minimum of stress in my life, I've been pretty... well... I guess the word is cheerful. It's not a word I usually use to describe my mood, but there you have it.

I've even been eating healthier. Not by design, mind you. I've just been getting cravings for fruit in the mornings and light, well-rounded dinners at night.

This is horrible. I can't stand this early to bed and early to rise shit. I feel like a Stepford Tech.

This will not stand, man! This lack of aggression will not stand!

Reflections, refractions

The past few posts have been about how my life doesn't really suck all that much. The reason that this is kind of a big revelation to me is because of how strange an experience readjusting to work has been. For so long my time was mine and mine alone, now it is shared between myself and my responsibilities. It has been difficult to strike the balance between the two, but it has been helped immeasurably by the fact that this job gives me quite a bit of autonomy. Even though I am required to perform my job title duties, how I do it is up to me, and while I answer to a manager, he isn't looking over my shoulder. I have my precious independence.

Nevertheless, there are areas of my life that I feel need work. I'm not exactly certain what to do about them, but recent events have given me an idea as to why things are the way that they are, and possibly a clue as to how to rectify those areas I'm dissatisfied with. Between the more proactive role I'm taking in fixing the shit and the excitement generated by the prospect of working on some video projects, I am thrust into a much more optimistic point of view.

I'm still a misanthrope, mind you, I just feel better about myself.
