I’m small, blunt, and terribly useful. I build websites, specializing in compliant CSS and XHTML. I like quilting, cars, and critters.

Here we go again

Here we go again

Today is day 0.

Technically, it’s day 5, but today’s the day it really came out of my mouth: “Something’s got to change.”

And so, by way of accountability. Here we go. A change.

The problem, in brief

  • The stress is too high
  • The interests are too low
  • The way out is unclear

Stress

I’m 50% of a business. I do, theoretically, what I love, but you would honestly never know it from the way I behave. This has to change, before I go insane and the business goes kablooey. (Technical terms here, okay?)

Interests

In short, I have none. Everything I used to be absorbed by has gone by the wayside. It’s to the embarassing point now that I tell people what I used to do for fun.  You know, because I was cool at some point years ago.

The Path

There’s always a way out of the woods. Now, just to find it.

The current theory is this:

  • Fix the diet (in progress, day 5).
  • Get off my lazy, stressed butt and DO something active on a regular basis.
  • Find a hobby. Heck, diversify and find a few.
  • Learn to manage stress in a way that doesn’t involve the current solution (Clue-by-four: pretending it doesn’t exist while fuming isn’t fooling anyone, including me.)
