Got quite a bit done at work today. I don't really get into what I do here on the blog. For one thing, it would identify me a little bit more than I am comfortable with. For another, I figure most of you who read this don't give a flying flip about what I do for a living. You just want me to keep writing, writing, writing.
So, I write.
I have said it here before, several months ago, but it bears repeating. Life sure does have a more rosy outlook when you have a job you like. I have had a job or two in my life that I didn't like at all. The kind of job where getting out of bed will be the most challenging thing I'd do all day long. The kind where I'd be a little ashamed about what I was doing and would dress it up to make it appear to be more glamourous and interesting than it really was.
I am not saving the rainforest with this job or finding a cure for spastic colon or anything like that. I am just saying that what I do is in my field of endeavour and I have to constantly stretch myself to learn new stuff.
18 months ago I had only held a BlackBerry once in my life and never dreamed I'd actually have one. Now, I am on my second one and spend time researching the new models that will be out by the holidays, when I can order my third. And a bluetooth headset? What does that mean? And "pairing" such a headset with a BB? What does that mean? Why would someone want to do that? Today, try to wrest that BB and headset from my grasp and you'll have a fight on your hands. I take it to bed with me. I respond to e-mails at 11pm while I am struggling to get to sleep. And I love it.
Hope you like your job as much as I like mine!
