Welcome Back, Nick!

So, I know it’s been a while. I’m very aware of that. I don’t think I’ve written anything this calendar year. Which is sad really. Shara was looking at my blog and said, “you should just delete it.

So I started thinking about it more. I like writing. I like having my thoughts written down; even if they are random. So instead of making any sort of resolution for the New Year, I have decided for my brain’s sake, and writing purposes I will need to write something every day. No matter how big or small; even if it’s just a though of the day, a picture, or something huge.

Today’s thought: Recently I’ve started a new schedule at work, and so far I am not a big fan. We’ve adjusted the teams we work on for our California offices, and I work with another guy and the two of us need to “man the fort” so to speak from 9 am to 7 pm Monday through Friday. So we decided the best way to do this was to split the shifts. One “early” shift (8:30 - 5:30), and one “late” shift (10:30 - 7:30), and we also decided that if you work the late shift one night, you work the early shift the next day, thus picking up the pieces from the night before if needed. This is really weird for my morning routine, which I have grown accustomed to over the past 8 + years since coming home form my mission on roughly the same exact schedule. I’m a creature of habit, and so waiting in the morning to come in, as it seems, is weird to me. Sure I get things done around the house, I blast some music, work on some projects and then head into work. It’s just the schedule throws me off. Not to mention when I work the late shift, I come home and Shara is already in bed, so then I don’t get to see her. So that’s no added bonus to it either.

Well, there. I’m done venting about that.

And now I have started, and hope to maintain more of these daily.
