So here I am sitting in the Mezzanine of the Department of Where I Work in the VA Government. Who would ever have thought I would be working for the government? I surely did not, though I am only working on a Windows XP computer rollout.

I need to remain busy. I need to have something to show for myself at the end of the day. Enough of this going to work, sittingon my ass and not doing anything. That was fine in college, where most of college was just that… going somewhere and sitting on my ass then going home.

Where I would much rather stay firmly planted, sleeping for about a million hours until I lose this constant state of exhaustion and uninspiration.
I want to be able to spend more time designing or at least trying to design. As of late, I can’t finish a single project. I want to, the motivation is there, but the time and energy are just not. When I get home, I am so tired I just want to take a nap, not do anything creative or worthwhile. And I am suffering because of it. I need to find some balance in my life again, because this sure as hell is not it. Maybe the traveling over the holidays will help. Maybe they won’t… I always get really depressed over the Xmas holiday. We’ll see what this year brings…
