To put it mildly, work has largely taken over my life.
I work six days a week, from about 7:30 to 3:00, depending on the workload, and it’s gotten so I no longer use my computer for pleasure. It’s either work, blogging, or a video chat with someone.
This might sound like the beginning to a tirade about my overly lengthy work hours but I’ve got to be honest.
I freakin’ love it.
I feel pumped almost every time I hop online to work. I’m writing about video games, polishing up other people’s articles, collaborating with people who have the same passions that I do. It’s just all so fantastically unreal to me that I have reached this point in my life.
I never thought I would be the kind of person to be swept up by a “career,” but it’s accurate to say that (aside from family), my life now revolves around work.
This could all implode in my face one day.
I might find that my work-life balance is not being met, and that my downtime is just being wholly subsumed by my work.
Side note: I’ve actually had days where that has happened, where I’ve stayed in my computer chair till 7 at night and my eyeballs are dying and my back is aching and I am just fed up with words.
But for right now, I am reveling in it.
It feels so mentally active. I’m loving it.
And I just thought I would let you all know that.
