Lifestyle change

I got to sleep in for the first time in weeks today, and I get to do it tomorrow too. It's awesome! Granted, volleyball has a lot of the weekend-get-up-early thing, but it's mostly going to a day job that changes things so much.

There are ups and downs to working at home and working at a location. On one hand, I feel a little more productive, I have a predictable income (contracting plus Web sites vary a ton), I don't stay up until 3 a.m., I'm learning and having my brain stimulated by other people, etc. The down side is that I don't feel like my time is my own. I spend an hour and a half in the car every day, eat like crap, don't feel motivated to exercise, don't have time to work on my own projects, don't clean the house regularly, don't stay up on groceries, etc.

Life is really crazy right now. My personal life is about as instable as it could be, I'm on the verge of writing and shooting a film, I might meet Bill Gates next week if I'm lucky, I have writing opportunities coming up, summer (and amusement parks) are right around the corner. I swear the last year has been so insane, and the next appears insane with opportunity. Scary as that might be, it's exciting.
