It is amazing how one big shift in your life ripples into areas you wouldn’t think. I just switched careers. From a tech support role to a design / development role. Honestly something I have been attempting to make happen for a while. I couldn’t be happier with a new set of challenges and problems to face down, but i didn’t think shifting where I walk to after i drive to Temple would change thing like my morning routine, or getting to bed earlier.
But for the first time in 11 + years I’m not on call, I didn’t have any idea how much energy and time I spent focused on support issues, even if there weren’t any after hours. I can now come home, and I’m home… Its a really novel concept.
So in the two weeks I’ve been at the new gig i built a LEGO set I’ve been pushing off I’ve been writing and drawing constantly and I’ve gotten more than 5 hours of sleep on 12 of the 14 days since. And I even opened up the blogging tools and started planning things out. Do I know if this new energy will last? Nope. Do I plan to ride out the wave, hell yes. Here’s to new challenges and new opportunities!
