A Crazy Week

I found out a little over a week ago that I'm going to be laid off.  I don't know exactly when but probably sometime around February or March of 2014.  I'm not allowed to describe the details, so I'm going to be vague about certain things.

I was pretty surprised about the announcement.  And terrified.  And excited too.

Why excited?  Even though my job is pretty good, it's never what I wanted to do with my life.  I'm always afraid of getting comfortable in a job and just staying there.  Don't get me wrong, that's not a terrible thing.  But sometimes other goals get put aside once you get comfortable.

So I decided to start this blog to talk about my life, my interests and my new job opportunities.

I've decided to stay at my job for now until I learn how long I have left.  I honestly haven't figured out much more than that.

My biggest problem has always been lack of motivation.  Which is annoying because I perform great at any of my jobs and at school.  Ok, that sounded like a humblebrag.  And I don't even know if humblebrag is 1 or 2 words.

I'm motivated at work but not at home.  I know people who come home from work and whiz around their house cooking and cleaning.  But I don't ever feel like doing that after I get out of work.  So as you probably can tell, I don't have any kids.  I have a cat, though.  (Cute picture below)

That's enough with the depressing talk.  I guess I should talk a little more about myself....

 I'm basically pretty nerdy.  Not like the trendy nerd that is super popular right now.  Just a nerd who's always been that way.

What kind of a nerd?  Well, I've always been into video games.  RPG's and platform games are my favorite!  As a kid, I played the first Final Fantasy and Zelda on my Nintendo.  They're still some of my favorite games.  I still remember the moment of joy when I found the airship in the desert in FF.

I was feeling nostalgic last night and started played Windwaker.  This is one of my favorite Zelda games. A Link to the Past is amazing also. And Ocarina of Times would be in my top 3.

I'm also a huge reader, and I read way more than I play video games.

What I'm Reading Right Now: A Dance with Dragons

This whole series has been soooo good that I kinda don't want to finish this book.  At least not until the next book is released.  I also enjoy Game of Thrones on HBO even though there's too much nudity and it sometimes seems forced into the episode.

What I'm Watching Right Now: Breaking Bad

I've heard so much about this show and I didn't think I'd like it.  I actually didn't like the first few episodes but now that I'm on the 4th season I love it!  Bob Odenkirk is such a great addition - so funny.  I want to try to catch up so I can watch the new episodes live.

Anyway, I guess it's time to wrap up this post.  I want to post regularly, but as previously mentioned I have problems with motivation.
