Wednesday, July 02, 2008I'm capable of that - I swear.
Lately I've been experiencing one of those "what am I doing with myself?" periods, focused principally on my job. Ever since I finished my dissertation, I've been trying to redirect my intellectual energies to what I get paid to do, but so far I haven't had any real luck. While the stuff I'm studying is interesting at one level, it's just not what I'd call stimulating. I just don't care that much. At one level maybe it's good that I'm not emotionally committed to my work - I certainly don't get obsessed about it, or stress out too much. But I see Brazen Hussy and how she's doing work that fascinates her and I feel a bit jealous. I suppose most people just do work for a paycheck, but it certainly isn't much fun. Particularly when you decades more of it to look forward to. Maybe this is just reality, or perhaps I should just stop whining, but I don't know if I can keep doing this for the next 30 years.
