I am ready for a break. Not so much a break from work, as break from pointless stupidity. What is wrong with people, that they must create so much drama? I just don’t know.
But I don’t need to think about that for another two days. So, I won’t.
I really need to focus on what I want, what interests me, what I enjoy, what makes me happy, what makes me better. I have spent way too much time in my life struggling and battling my demons, working so hard to overcome obstacles, and just trying to get some semblance of normality back in my life.
I’m now dug out from under mountains of old debt that got racked up from bad decisions and lousy impulse control. I have a much clearer vision of what I can do for work, and I have some projects which are really helping me get my act together, hone my thinking, and build self-confidence and resilience.
I’m still going to work on myself — only now I’m working to get better, not just get back from being bad.
And all this work requires rest. I have been reading a lot, I have been working a lot, I have been planning and learning and dreaming a lot.
Now I need to rest. To give it all a break and let my body and brain regroup and recoup.
But before I go, let me share this with you – it’s a game that supposedly improves your intelligence. It’s called Dual N-Back, and it’s about remembering sounds and positions of items. It’s free, and it’s at http://www.soakyourhead.com/Default.aspx. You have to have a web browser that has Silverlight on it, but that’s not hard to get — unless you’re at your local library or on someone else’s computer.
I’ve been playing a little bit, and I’m surprised at how well I’m doing.
But seriously. I need to take a break now.
It’s been a really, really long week.
