Stupid Things I do

[ #29486 ]

When I think of a spontaneous or impulsive person - I think of someone who is always doing something different.

By that definition - I am not spontaneous or impulsive. I like things a certain way and while I don't fight change (ok, maybe a little) I certainly don't welcome it.

And yet - I have momentary bouts of insanity where bizarre things enter into my head and I execute them blindly. Today it was bicycling into work. You see, I am at least 40 pounds overweight and haven't exercised (let alone been on a bike) in about 3 years.

Do you think any rational thinking could have prevented me from making the 10 mile trek into work this morning?

In other personal news - Jasmine is doing great and will be turning 3 months old this Sunday. I have a pretty poor website up at http://www.gatcomb.org/ if you are interested. The 3 of us are driving up to Maine in June for my neice's graduation - she is first in her class.

In tech news, I have pretty much just become an observer on #perl6. I do have 2 projects that I am working on - one in perl5 and the other in C. I have been taking a 3 week cycle approach to them. (1 week on Perl, 1 week on C, 1 week off). It has helped avoid even further burn out.

I am turning 30 this year. I never really appreciated how much dedication it takes to be married, raise a child, take care of a house you own, and maintain a decent paying job. Don't get me wrong - I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world but I am truly amazed by those that do that plus find time to have a social life and work on fun projects in their personal free time (ok - stop laughing).

I guess with time comes experience and hopefully with experience comes a bit of wisdom.

Cheers,
L~R
