Let’s talk about work. My work. My lack of work… the company I work for currently is about to switch data programs and so I haven’t been able to open any orders. Which, as you can imagine, has made my December incredibly boring.
Now, most people are happy to get paid for doing nothing. In fact, I know a great many people who would absolutely love it. Let me explain that the nothing I have been doing has not been in my home. I don’t get to take a nap in the afternoon. And I sit in front of my boss which makes it a little hard to goof off and/or read. The first day that I had nothing to do–not that bad.
The 30th day that I had nothing to do–agony.
School is winding down and so all of my classes are piling on the work. I won’t bother to list all of my assignments that are do within the next weeks. It’s a lot. That’s all that really needs to be said.
It made me wonder how Olympic level archers find the time between work and practice. I’m supposed to be shooting 100 arrows 5 times a week, but life is getting in the way. School isn’t the only thing getting in the way, I also want to see my friends and be social. My life feels like a giant triangle. The points are being social, shooting, and school, and I can only devote my time to one of them.
The worst part is that all I want to do is go out shooting. I’ve given the archery-virus to some of my friends, but they can’t all shoot with me all the time. Shooting helps me to de-stress when my workload gets too high. I hate not being able to shoot every day.
I can’t wait for May 10th. I walk in commencement on May 16th.
THEN I CAN SHOOT ALL THE TIME!
