Patting Myself on the Back

Busy, busy, busy! I haven’t had much time to come here and write anything lately. I did warn you that I would be a bit busy, didn’t I? So, really, it’s not unexpected.

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind. It has gone by so fast and it’s been so nice to get back to an area of my career that I have been ignoring for so long. It’s solidified the fact that I do love what I do and makes me question why I ever really started giving it a quarter-assed effort. I am still not much of a people person, but I think it’s getting better. I feel like that’s one of my flaws. I love people in general, but I’m just not that great interacting with them. I have so many face palms happening in my head when I try to talk to people. It just takes some practice I think. I’ll get there. I kinda wished that my parents would have let me socialise a lot more than I did, or they at least encouraged it. (They didn’t really encourage or push me to do anything. They just expected good results from everything and if I didn’t meet their expectations, they’d get angry… then ground me. I hate blaming them for this, but I feel like kids benefit from good social interactions.)

I don’t want to beat and belittle myself in this post, really because I am pretty proud of myself for doing a really good job. As with everything I do though, I feel as if I can or could do a bit better. That’s not negative, but I feel like people should try to improve themselves every day, for as long as they can. No one knows everything, and when you’re in the field that I’m in (which I’m still keeping secret), things are changing all the time.

So that’s where I am at the moment. Enjoying myself and not having to travel 3 hours a day is really nice. I’ll have to do that for a few more months at least though.

I will say that I’m quite excited for my future. I just need to take a few deep breaths, and keep telling myself that I can do whatever I put my mind to because I’ve shown myself time and time again that I can do it.
