This post has no direction.

Work-life balance. “Myth. No work worth doing balances out your life. No relationship worth having balances out your life.” – A CEO via Facebook

Interestingly, this balance issue never became one until I found myself in a cubicle in exchange for stability, excellent health care coverage, and promising upward mobility.

“You’re going to be bored out of your mind, Derek.” These were the parting words from a prior employer. I knew he was right then, and on occasion it’s true now.

I don’t have it so bad. My supervisor also leaves me alone. I work on dynamic projects that are mildly stimulating, and resolve issues that are relatively rewarding – in a justice sort of sense. At least I like to tell myself that.

The good news: I’m not stressed. 2012 was kind to me. Job opened up a lot of new opportunities, I bought ammunition and gun accessories before panic-geddon, and I learned a lot. I just didn’t write about it. I miss sharing… in a narcissistic way.

Not too long ago, I settled to find a career simulating enough, but not too time consuming so I can casually enjoy the fun things that I really like doing. I have that opportunity: I just didn’t take advantage of it. Perhaps it’s about time I start taking the time to do the things I know I like doing, as opposed to volunteering for things I think I should like doing.

Life is all about decisions, making each worthwhile. I stepped away from this blog for way too long. I’ll see ya’ll at SHOT Show 2013. Where are all the parties at?

    Good thoughts. There’s a reason civilization doesn’t develop without leisure time developing first; similarly, feel no guilt about not blogging, if what you ended up doing instead is developing your own personal resource base so that you can have more leisure time do things such as blogging.
