Time Just Flies

OMG the month of May is passing my blog by. It's not because I haven't been riding. It's because I haven't been slacking! A good 90% of my online contributions: blog entries, Flickr & forum posts, used to happen during work hours. This had been going on for the last 4 years. What started out as a way to kill time at work became a way of life.

That is a lot of typing & time!

But since I've decided to stop wasting my life away in a cubicle. I've gotten more focused on moving from the ranks of unemployed to self employed. I find that my time wasting pursuits have fallen my the wayside.

Eventually I will reach an equilibrium with work, riding, photography and online writing; but for now I am heavily engaged in everything work, with regular fits of parenting thrown in for good measure. And I think in order to succeed that it the way it's going to be for 6 or 12 months.

But I have my eye on the prize. What is that Gail? Why free time of course. What else would I be working towards? Hope your summer gets off to a great start this holiday weekend. We are heading up to the Woodstock, Vermont area, I can't wait, I need the mini-vacation!

Just discovered your blog and love it! And I'm fascinated by your decision to quit your job. I envy you.

I'm surprised to hear most of your blogging happened during work hours...What kind of work did you used to do?
Being self-employed could be very hard work

I've been working as an IT contractor since 2005. The vast majority of my jobs had zero to 20 hours a work a week. Corporate waste land. I'm very happy learning new things and using my business and technical skills. It takes a while to step away from the busy work of online communities, but once I prioritized my goals...they started falling by the wayside.

I don't really have anything useful to say, but I wanted to say "hi". Your photography skills keep getting better and better. Hope things keep working out for you.
