*sneeze* It must be that season…..

Well I’ve been on the east coast for about 4 months now.  The transition has been…..interesting.  Job wise, it was a roller-coaster ride.  From tackling opportunities when they come about, to feeling extremely lucky to still be in the running when others around me are falling left and right, I really have no idea how I’m coping with all this.  In any case, I’m standing here job in hand.  Yeah I’m making a number of mistakes here and there, but it’s a real crash course on the real world I guess.  The experience I’m getting from just working in an actual structured environment with responsibilities that are pretty high are something I won’t take lightly.  Now is this the job I want to make a career out of?  Yeah…..sorry man.  I really intend to just do this for two years and move on.  I’m not saying it’s a dead end job.  I just don’t feel satisfied at the end of the day.

Ah a reason to talk about golf!  Well let’s put it this way:  even if I shank a shot in golf (or miss a putt), I don’t feel discouraged because I know to the satisfying feeling I get for hitting a dead on shot (or that perfect line on a putt).  It’s like “yeah, struggles worth it yo.” *watches shot fly to the flag*

Like I (somewhat) said before, doing a good job feels a bit…..empty.  When I get off, I’m just relieved to not think about work.  Gah sounds like when I used to work retail.  Heck even though I got paid less and did something super monotonous (woo support) I felt my Valve job was more rewarding.  But this has to be apart of the process I guess?  Get a job that’s meh as a step up to something that’s more rewarding.  I hear that story all the time.  I just gotta keep at it, maybe tackle those side projects a little harder.  Fighting!

Speaking of fighting…..

Spring is kicking my ass.


Sleep is for the weak, but half sleep……

As common knowledge I currently reside on the East Coast.  This makes things really troublesome when I want to game with my friends back home or talk to my girlfriend.  Either I would have to ask them if they wanna game/talk a tad earlier (say 6 ish their time) or I would stay up till late night to get a sess in.  Safe to say my sleep schedule gets demolished on those nights I want to stay up.

Enter Polyphasic Sleep. I’ll leave it to the wiki article to explain it.  There are different methods of doing Polyphasic Sleep.  I am specifically doing Segmented Sleep. With this I sleep my “first phase” of sleep around 8-9 ish for 3.5-4 hours.  Then I wake up around 12:30-1am ish and do whatever.  Around 3:30am I go back to bed to wake up (hopefully) around 7am to get ready for work.  I still need to calibrate my body to fall asleep at an earlier time, but I think this might be my solution to hanging out with people on the West Coast still.  We shall see……in anycase, going to sleep deprive my self temporarily so I can reset my sleep schedule.
