Been A While

First off… Happy 2020!

This is my first post of 2020, the year of the rat!

A lot has happened. There were sad things and there were good things. I went back to Texas for Christmas and hung out with the family. I played with their new cats (that were kittens they adopted from a shelter). One was a Siamese with the most adorable personality ever.

I caught up with old friends in Texas. I realize now that some of the group I hung out with in college turned out to be very horrible people. Even back then I had resented their treatment, but I thought it was in my head. Now I’ve learned to trust that gut feeling you get when you meet a person. Your first impression may not be wrong.

As for my life, it is going good. I have a way to earn good money by contract teaching. I use my free time on my hobby and my writing. With the money I am thinking of taking a trip.

I enjoy each day. I get to self-study, work on my novel, and my myriad of hobbies. Mr. Waka is also loving his job at the moment. I asked if he cared that I get so much free time, but he had the same view as me. “If you’re are making the same as you would working a weekly job, what does it matter?”

Exactly. When I get a contract I’ll work 10 hour shifts per day, back to back days. When I don’t, I can enjoy week long breaks. This has been my ideal job situation since my teen years.

So that’s my life at the moment. How is everyone doing?

  1. Happy New Year! That sounds like the ideal work situation if you are able to earn enough while also having time for your hobbies. As I get older I often think about how important it is to try to enjoy life and live in the now. I’ve recently reduced my work hours a bit so that I can have a better balance. I’m happy to hear Mr. Waka is enjoying his job at the moment too!
