Guiltless Pleasures

August 2, 2011

I love the fact that I can browse the internet all day while I’m at work.

Failblog
Reddit
Imgur

These are just a few of the sites I love to frequent. If they didn’t exist… I don’t know what I’d do. I might have better performance at work, but at what price?

My sanity? No thanks.

I honestly don’t think I could have lasted here for 2 years without some sort of mental stimulation. Which is probably why management allows us to use the internet.

They could easily disable it, yet don’t. Although they do block most gaming and social networking sites. (Darn you Barracuda.)

There is probably something in there about how the lack of outside stimulation decreases work productivity, but I’m feeling much too lazy to research that right now.

The search for a different path.

April 20, 2011

So… I’ve been getting burnt out on my job lately.

I feel it coming. I have been quietly loathing my job more and more everyday.

Don’t get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with the company. In fact, for someone in my job field. It’s probably one of the best companies to work for.

It’s just that the work has become very repetitive.

I should be grateful that I even have a job right? Be grateful that without any degree at all I’m flourishing right? Be happy that I’m married to a beautiful woman and we have a beautiful house on a very large piece of property.

I should be happy that I have accomplished so much at such a young age right?

But I’m not.

I’m always looking for something more. Something better. Something else.

This has led me on a search for a different job.

Something that doesn’t require a degree. (School bores me to death.)

If you have any suggestions post them in the comments.

This email has no content.

April 13, 2011

I received an email this morning from an innocent enough name.

At first I thought the name was “Lisa” and I thought to myself “Oh Good!”

Then I realized that the name wasn’t quite what I thought it was. It turned out to be a “Lia” with a yale.edu email address. Now the best part about this email is that it turned out to be spam. Why was this a good thing? Well… in the body of the email all that was written was “This emailĀ has no content.”

After reading that I thought “How nice.” Someone has taken the liberty to delete all of their ramblings that I probably wouldn’t read anyways, and replaced it with a simple message that sums up the entire email.

Now if only I can convice a few other people that email me to just replace all their nonsense with “ThisĀ email has no content.”
