Challenged by the future
How do I feel? I don't know.

Work's a real challenge at the moment, but in a good way.
I have to learn to program this new processor at the moment,
and it's very different to anything I've ever done before.
But low-level work is the sort of thing I'm always good at,
so I'm looking forward to it.

The schedule for our next project is being drawn up at
the moment. I'm already booked for about a thousand hours
between now and the end of the year, so it's a sure thing
that the next six months is going to get extremely busy.

Which is great. I've coasted the past few months, and I
think I need something where I'm compelled to focus hard,
where other people are really depending on me.

I like working by my own direction, but I tend not to
grow from it. Is it a bad thing that I think I'm the
sort of person who needs to be pushed, to do their best
work?

There aren't many good things about not being young
and free and 20-something any more. But one of them
is not being on the roller coaster that seems to
drive people's lives at that time. Asqui
says I'm still convinced my life is governed by
a sine wave
. Hmm. Is that a good thing?

Sure the good parts are good, but the lows are pretty
low. Kind of like being a manic depressive. The manic
bit can be a bit fun if you're prepared to let the wave
sweep you away.

What the 20-somethings don't realise (or don't want to
realise) is that not riding the roller coaster is a big
comfort to me. I have a good job, I've been married seven
years today to my best friend (and I've been with her for
that long again), I have two great kids and a job I love.
All I have to do is keep my head down, do my best, and I
know the world will be a good place for me.

Sure things are hard some times, but I don't get quite
as angst-y about it as my younger friends do. I know
things will work out if I just keep trying and never
give up.

I didn't feel comfortable vacuuming the house tonight until accompanied by the appropriate music...
