Work/Play: Personal Update

So I'm going back to work on Wednesday and Thursday this week, and Tuesdays and Thursdays thereafter. Which goes along with my strategy of making WORK seem less like work by doing less of what seems like work, I'm excited about two days of work in a way that I wouldn't be about five. I get to keep my health insurance, which is obviously hugely important. I still have time to write, though less. Though I also don't have to look down the barrel of covering $2,000 in monthly expenses with freelance income, which is currently hovering at about $150/month.

You don't add two days of work without losing two days of something else. A person's ability to see that something's got to go is a pretty decent predictor of happiness in my book. I mean, a lot of people choose to lose sleep. But if you ask me, that's just losing a thin slice from everything else. And I don't want to lose my Sundays, again. Particularly now that Saturdays are such buttkickers, I love Sundays for putting myself back together. I mean, I love that sorting the laundry on the kitchen floor is what Sunday morning is for.

Looking at my index cards, I have two days for writing Livestrong articles, which is where $100 comes from, two days for the work I do for the league, which I like a lot, but is a lot, and one day for writing for this blog, which I like the best.

Not shown on my index cards is how much television I watch. That could stand to be trimmed.
