WordPress sent me a note today. I registered to blog with them 4 years ago….not sure how that feels, like yesterday or several lifetimes ago….
I write less lately. Please don’t mistake that for a lack of opinions :). It is the result of spending too many hours at a computer screen during the day. this job of mine has turned into its own sort of monster. My eyes, and brain, are tired at the end of the day.
This retirement thing seems to have taken a leave of absence.
I promised myself that the job would be “fun”. that i would not slip into old habits of caring too much, working too much, worrying too much. Right. There are great moments of joy in my work, but the push is palpable: do more, bring in more funding, bring in more schools, up your numbers, be the best supervisor ever, understand millennials, don’t let people walk on you, check on this and this and this. I’m exhausted.
But, this too shall pass. In the scheme of things I have nothing to complain about. Life is full, the beach house is awesome, you know the drill.
However, I am going to do some serious thinking after the first of the year. Maybe it’s time for some changes….
Oh, and Happy Anniversary WordPress. Glad you stuck around.
