So, I have a job now. · 12:02am
Despite low expectations after an unfruitful job search last year, over this summer break I've managed to find a position in maintenance at a local golf course. (My city has a lot of golf courses. No one's really been able to explain why.) Today was my first day, which went well, aside from the hail. It's mostly mowing and raking, along with any other odd jobs that needs doing. Outside work, good pay, only a small chance of getting thwacked in the head with a golf ball. The only downside: the hours are ludicrous. It's full-time work, every weekday and every other weekend, and I start at six in the morning. It's barely eight now and I feel ready to go to bed.
So a bit of a mixed blessing here. Given how much you've seen of me lately, this might mean that we're about to see a sudden storm of even less. However, now that I have to regiment my time, I've resolved to spend at least some time every day working on writing, either editing or working on one of my own projects. Assuming I can adjust, this might be the spur I need to finally get things done.
