I know some of you guys envy my lifestyle, particularly those doing the leaving cert or in full time day jobs – suckers
Well, maybe you don’t envy my finances or future prospects etc… but you can’t beat being in college and not having a real day job
Yesterday for example, i had a couple of classes in the morning, strolled about for lunch, went to maths class but the lecturer never showed up, was due to have another class with different lecturer but lecturer was off, spent 2 hours drinking/chilling in the college bar from 1.30pm to 3.30pm, then messed about on computers and fireworks/photoshop until about 4.45pm when i got bored and decided to go home
This is the life.. not only am i loving what course i’m doing and the college i’m in, i’m good at it and can afford to skip a few classes here and there
I complain a lot, but underneath it all i’m loving my life at the minute. Yeah, the money is drying up and i’ll have to change that some how, but i believe hapiness comes first. I wasn’t happy when i had a job and was earning cash, but i am now.
If i can keep my work rate up, start building more projects and investing more time and energy into my ideas and sites, i’m confident the rewards will come at some stage be it a year down the line or 5 years down the line. Patience and persistence is all that’s required, i have the brains and the ability
Today will be the first day since i started college that i take off… i’ve missed about 7 or 8 classes in total for various reasons, but never taken a full day off. Why am i off today?
Because i only have one hour long lecture and nobody will turn up to it. It would mean i’d have to drive for an hour up to college, then an hour back, just for that one lecture. Not worth it. Instead, i’ll be doing something very productive online which i’ll blog about later…
But the point i want to get across is that life is all about making decisions and knowing when to cut your losses. I *could* and *should* go in to college as it’s ultimately enhancing my skills/earnings potential, but i’ve weighed it up and made a reasonable decision. It will free up my day which in turn will allow to me get creative and comfortable…
So what am i doing with my day? I’ll blog about it later, but it’s another challenge or ‘kick up the backside‘ as i call it to get me working and pushing myself again I know myself better than anyone and am my biggest critique. What happened to smemon – the entrepreneur? Well, he’s back from today on
