Not that I believe in bio-rhythm but the last two weeks haven’t been that great for me. Nothing particularly bad happened, just nothing great happened either. I started a new job, got new glasses, got a new home theatre system, and released my own software. What more can a man want? I hear you ask.
Well, I am still trying to fit in at my new work environment. Still feeling like an outsider from time to time. I am also no longer the domain expert/leader of the development team so I am not feeling ‘needed’, I guessed. The home theatre system is great but I started having a ringing noise in my left ear the same day the system was delivered. Talk about irony! Couple both of these with the very non-existence demand of my blogging software (though there is a very promising lead developing) and you can see how an optimist like myself can feel a bit down.
May be dinner with my friend Wendy, who had just came back from two weeks of vacation in Florence, tomorrow evening will lift my spirit. Or I can try the material route and order the new cell phone tomorrow when I get paid. Or better yet, the tax software will arrive new week, I can file my tax return and get some money (well, more than some) back from IRS!
