Thoughts and ramblings on tech, media, culture, and food. Plus some other stuff, I'm sure.

So Worn Out

This day has been so tiring. I'm not sure if it was the storm last night waking me up at 3 AM, all the work I've had to do at work or what... but my normal (and even abnormal) efforts at coffee intake did not work.

I need to get some new electric guitar strings. I'm think I may just spring for the Thomastik-Infelds... I haven't played them since college and I love them. And figure I might as well. To order or to drive to Guitar Center? That's the question. I have no other reason to drive the 45 minutes out to Fairview Heights, and it's so far when Musician's Friend is just a few clicks away... probably cheaper to order them online.

Today I trained faculty in using dotCMS again. It went pretty well. A little bit tedious considering I had zero energy. But all in all I think it all worked out. New Student Orientation starts tomorrow and the semester starts next week.

As I continue to read design blogs, more and more I wish I could just quit work and do freelance all the time. But it's certainly not feasible at this point. I need the steady work, even if I have to put up with things and people.

I've got a bunch of projects I need to finish up and barely any drive to do them after everything at the day job. Do I feel a bit overwhelmed? Yes, certainly. But I am holding out for a specific project that I think is going to be awesome...
