Time marches on
Well. Two months to the day since my last post here. Shame, shame, shame. Yes, I’ve been quiet. Often when somebody is quiet it means they’re up to something. We’ll see if that is, in fact, the case.
As reported last time, my job is indeed drawing to a close. Two weeks from tomorrow, I will be temporarily unemployed. And after two months, I seem to have gone through all five stages and successfully made it to acceptance. I haven’t been all that happy at the job, after all, and so the prospect of leaving it isn’t bothering me that much. (The prospect of losing the money is bothering me, but what can you do.) At least I have some part-time work lined up starting in mid-August, and I’ll be looking for more.
In the meantime, I’m facing seven weeks off. And, while I am looking for something to fill the gap, I’m actually feeling okay about it. I’ve got several creative projects lined up–among them the expansion of Labyrinths, as well as the plotting of what will probably end up being a pretty serious mainstream novel. Of which more later, I’m sure.
In addition to these, I’ve been playing around more and more with making music. I’m studying the guitar again, and astonishingly, I seem to be making a little bit of progress this time; and my experiments with electronic music are also getting results. (There might even be a new Zeitung track or two in the near future. Shocking, I know.) I’m expecting all sorts of fun there, if nothing else.
Anyway, at the moment I’m in kind of a holding pattern until this job finally goes bye-bye. The summer is looking like it’ll be a period of some transition, and I’m anxious to get started.
