thinking out loud...

So I've migrated all my posts. As I mentioned earlier, I wrote more frequently when I was on AOL, I took and posted a lot more photos and I certainly received (and also made) more comments. I've had the feeling for some time that working at my mind-numbing job has been sucking the creative juices out of me, and this review of my earlier posts seems to confirm that. Which is...depressing. But it would be even more depressing to just mindlessly give in to that. It's not like it's inevitable. The question is, what are my options?

I enjoy the work I do particularly the field I am doing it in although being in the Accounting side of things most of the month gets to be routine and boring so I can relate to your mind-numbing experience. I try to balance it out with other things I love. I also listen to music or podcasts while I work to engage myself so time doesn't feel like it is dragging.

Good luck with figuring it all out. And, it's nice to see you on Blogger.

I have to go through some of mine and save them in my new blog. I don't trust AOL! Tammy

(((Judi!))) O' m'gosh! I didn't even know you still knew where IIII was! LOL Thanks so much for popping over and letting me know. SO greatful, and tickled to see you. I'm a little hesitant right now...committing...I need to replace my pc...the reason I've been so scarce. Hope to join you guys soon though! Hope all's been well with you. ;) C.

I completely understand THAT feeling! I think you alway shave choices, even if it's between two so-so choices, or two bad choices,lol. One has to be less bad than the other. I've found if you take that route, it can then lead to a much better set of choices...

"mind-numbing job has been sucking the creative juices out of me"

Wow, no wonder I've been so quiet lately. I've got to get to work on migrating those over too.

Y'know...I've noticed the AOL purge seems to have awakened a lot of bloggers that have been largely absent. For instance, this is the second blog I've visited today where I've seen a comment from Robbie. Nice to "see" the old faces popping up.

What I was going to say, though, was, in copying/pasting my old posts, I am at least re-encouraged about my ability to write. Some of my old posts, particularly the political stuff, were just... GOOD. I know I haven't the time or the capacity to write like that right now, but that hasn't stopped me from keeping my oar in. I still surprise myself once in awhile with a good little zinger or two. And as I get more comfortaqble with the challenges of running the restaurant, I see my writing becoming more frequent and somewhat more thoughtful.

It's all part of "The Circle Game," I guess.
