Life, and my lack thereof

Tuesday 04 February 2003 at 01:04 am After heatedly discussing the topic of the state of MY union with my beautiful and supportive wife, I've realized that I suck. No, I don't suck; I merely have not come across something that has inspired me to action. Unfortunately, I have been waiting for something to inspire me for about 4 months now, and frankly I haven't been trying all that hard. So tomorrow I'm going to a job fair. I think I'll look for something in the realm of network and system security. Or maybe a PHP programming job. I'm not sure yet, but I need to do something, something that exercises my gray muscle.

Sure, Ebay does that to a certain point, but how many times in those fateful 7 days can you check to see how many bids you have or answer silly questions from the masses about a radar detector? And sure, you can rummage your basement for more stuff to sell, but after a while you run out of stuff. Or in my case, you don't want to sell the crap that you have because you are either sentimentally attached to it in some way, shape or form, or you have that deep inkling that if you get rid of it you'll desperately need it within 2 weeks of its departure.

So I am now setting off in my journey to find a job; maybe it's another venture, maybe it's just a mindless tech job, and maybe it's gonna rock my world. Either way, I hope it doesn't suck.

My heart goes out to NASA and the crew of the Columbia and their families. They are, have and continue to make sacrifices in their individual lives to advance our society in science and technology. I admire their willingness to risk their lives and their lifetime with their family to do what they love for the benefit of the greater good.

Yes, you do suck. Your looking for something to “inspire” you?!? Its like I’m reading a Harlequin novel or something! Get something that pays the bills and quit mooching off your wife!

I am exceptionally cheerful to peruse this. This is the sort of manual that should be given and not the arbitrary deception that is at alternate online journals. Value your sharing this best posting.
