Whew; I have fair worn myself out getting homework done tonight so I can have the latter half of the weekend off to spend with my friend traveling in from Atlanta.
I am more than a little pleased that I could knock out 1400+ words (not including citations!) on what is, essentially, one of the dryest topics known to mankind (organizational management and psychology). Urgh. I mean, there are damn near metric tons of research and information to shift through, but most of it centers around what are quintessentially human “known factors”. I am constantly boggled by how convoluted and complicated we can make… well… pretty much anything.
I suppose that in the end, it’s more a statement of our insistence upon thinking that convolution and complexity makes things “important” or “meaningful” (rather than merely convoluted and complicated); but I admit this is nothing but my opinion and about as likely to ascend to popularity or “meaning” as finding a dill pickle at a kosher wedding. (wry grin)
Annnnyway… I have a checkpoint on programmatic logic due by Friday and then, nothing more than two posts on four days to meet the discussion/participation requirements in the I.T. class this week; I’m pretty sure I can squeeze those in somewhere between reveling in my friend’s company.
In other news, a possibility thought passed has potentially resurfaced. I cannot say much on it at the moment; will know more sometime late next week. I am cautiously optimistic.
Other than this, it’s mostly juggling information at work, keeping pace with college, making time for simple enjoyments (currently reading ‘Open Heart, Clear Mind’ by Thubten Chodron; http://www.amazon.com/Open-Heart-Clear-Thubten-Chodron/dp/0937938874) and taking time to cuddle kitties and generally keep the meditative and introspective channels clear.
(Aside: I still have not done a damn thing with Dramatica Pro. Maybe I’m not intended to get these books out until I’m retired? Blergh. We’ll see.)
Slow steps upon the life path
For now, contentment
