One day at a time

It’s been about three weeks since I started working in an office again. Odd how I’ve been working for nearly ten years, but a year out of the workforce is making it a little difficult for me to adjust.

The work itself is not so bad. It’s a writing job, so it’s a comfort zone of sorts. However, it’s in the technical field again so I’m a floundering a little. In so many ways, it feels like I’m back in college: a journalism student hanging out with computer science students and zoning out when they all start talking.

I will be honest and say that this isn’t what I imagined I’d be doing with my writing skills. It pays well, no doubt, but it’s not what I feel like doing for the rest of my life. I do vow to be a better money manager this time around, so the bulk of what I earn goes into my savings.

Anyway, I’ll take each day as it comes. I’m also weighing some options, like going back to school in preparation for a future job that I’m not entirely sure I want, but it is really quite attractive.

I’m backed up with blog posts, and I have to edit some photos for a post that I should’ve uploaded last week. I’m spending ten hours plus at the office, and when I get home I have just enough energy to eat dinner, watch some TV and go to sleep. Two Mondays ago I found myself saying “Where did the weekend go?”, something that I didn’t expect to say again.

I’m itching for a trip to somewhere. My Hanoi trip didn’t push through (because I didn’t keep track of my passport’s expiry date) so my wanderlust has yet to be appeased. I’ve no plans for any trip this year, though I do want to see if I can get to Batanes before the year ends. Or at least, go somewhere I have never been to before.

I’m quite excited at the prospect.

On the tech front, I got a pocket wifi from Smart. Downside? My phone won’t connect to it. Boo. I’ll fix it this weekend. Have a good one.
