Finally Friday

So today is finally Friday, which I'm relatively excited about as it means that I have work to do, but the work of my choice... Although I'm doing work from my job at the time, it's much more enjoyable doing it in my time frame... As I write this I'm currently sitting at my "Cheers" (Michael's) having a burger and a beer. This makes for a much more comfortable working environment. My goal eventually is to be able to work from home full time, not at an hourly rate, but for a fee. It will happen eventually, there are just too many opportunities out there not for me to make that happen.
The work that I'm doing for my company is helping me add more skills to my arsenal, which is why I took the extra work on... I think it's a win win situation, and I'll continue to do it as long as it's mutually beneficial... I guess that's it for now.... I should get back to my dinner before it gets cold....

Rainy Saturday Afternoon

Wow, this is the longest time I've sat at a computer in awhile. It feels like the hidden geek is re-emerging... Got a couple downloads going on right now, coffee is brewing, building a spreadsheet for a website database, and surfing Facebook. Oh yeah, and updating my blog. I don't know if it's a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon, but at least it feels like I'm being productive.
I didn't drink last night, instead I stayed up late working on these spreadsheets. Yesterday was Good Friday, so I didn't have to work. I had actually planned to, but the events that transpired Thursday night kind of prevented it. So here I sit glued to the computer, reliving the days of my youth when I would sit in front of the computer for 16 hrs a day... Although I probably won't be sitting here that long today... I guess we'll see though.

Day One Of The Blog Attempt

I've never been good at keeping a journal, although the idea has always been appealing to me. I was laying in bed checking out my thoughts as they drifted by, and I realized that on occasion, I have some thoughts and ideas that are worth keeping track of.
I thought that writing a blog would be a good way to do that. Not everyone is interested in my thoughts, but sometimes some people are. I figured that If I came up with something good, I could point my friends here to check it out.
I suppose you could say that this is somewhat of a experiment, but I have no grand scheme, or point that I'm trying to prove, I just think that it's a great opportunity to share my thoughts with people who may be interested in it, without actually having to engage in a conversation... Kind of a win win on both sides...
