Life’s Little Curveballs

Life's little curveballs

Life’s little curve balls usually bring big changes for me. I am not so good at letting life take it’s course naturally, much to Tina’s dismay on most days.

I need a plan. I need to know exactly what I’m supposed to be doing to reach my next goal. So I think, long and hard usually. Next I form the perfect plan – a series of actions and expected reactions topped off with a healthy dose of confidence.  Then, I implement those plans so incredibly well that I impress myself every single time. Don’t get me wrong, I usually think things are getting screwed-up and about to come crashing down, but then my plan typically works out. Until July, I’ve only passively been searching for a job in Florida. I’ve been strategically placing pawns on the board in preparation for a checkmate. Over the past month I decided that the pieces were placed properly to get me into a real job. Checkmate.

So now I am working my dream job. I’m still a code ninja, wrestling object-oriented syntax and WordPress actions daily. I’m just able to do it in an actual office building surrounded by other actual human beings. Who knew they existed? I also have the added benefit of an enormous steady salary, a schedule that allows sleep, and a whole slew of insurance benefits. What the heck does “profit-sharing” mean, anyways? I’m used to penny-pinching and price-comparing.

And now I’m left with the same question I’ve faced many times before. What should I to do with this blog, now? It felt great to purge my portfolio and all that other business crap that was littered about the site. I think I have it figured out though. I have a plan.
