Other Things To Do

So, now that my job sucks and I've determined that there is now way out (because I signed my life away for the next year thanks to them paying $15,000 of my tuition), I am determined to find other things to put my time and energy into.

First of all, before Morrigan and Bou freak out - YES, I will go back to school this fall at a local school with live people in a real classroom, with tests, homework, and hopefully cute boys.

So right now, one of the things I'm trying to do is really get into working out. Where I've been doing just 30 min, I started 45 min 6 days last week, and this week I'm doing an hour a day. I'm tempted to try to go work out in the morning before work and then as usual, after work. Um, that would require me to wake up before 7am. First, I need to see if my alarm can be set before 7....never tried it.

I thought about getting into scrapbooking, after making a scrapbook for Napster for her memories of us here on the east coast. It was fun....but I don't think I'm that creative, nor do I have any other good reasons to make these books and it looks like it could become an expensive I think this one is just left for holidays and special occasions.

I would love to get back into my music. Mainly piano. I've even considered taking piano lessons again. However, I would have to get something to practice on. That's what I'm working with right now. I won't settle for one of those cheap $100 Wal-Mart keyboards. I am looking for a digital piano; something that is touch sensitive, full size, the pedals, etc. So far, I've found one for $500. I think I might keep checking the classifieds, yard sales and eBay! :-)

I've also considered guitar. I know very little about guitar, but would like to learn. I've tried twice before, but it hurt my fingers and I had to cut my nails. But, I may try again.

Hmmm, that's all I can think of at the moment. I never realized how much I loved my job and how much energy I put into it until now. So, as much as I don't like it right now, maybe it'll open the door for me to enjoy other things in life. If I'm lucky, maybe I'll find someone to enjoy other things with ;-)
