A couple of months ago I got a new job. I’m officially out of the retail environment after almost ten years with a Monday through Friday, steady hours, nice paycheck gig. All in all, everything is going well and I’m enjoying where I am now.
However, sometimes the work slows down and I’m literally sitting there reading whatever articles Yahoo deems important or playing Sudoku on the web. Sometimes this can make the day go by agonizingly slow.
I’m sure you all know those kinds of days.
This week wasn’t too bad. I honestly think it was due to my brain thinking about the stories I’ve been handwriting lately. They’re nothing special, seriously just some silly fanfiction-y things, but it’s the act of continuously writing these stories in my head while pretending to read an article about the latest “Dancing with the Stars” cut that make the passing time not seem quite as long.
I suppose it’s like pretending your favorite character is in your pocket, commenting on everything as your day goes by. All I have to do is remember not to make goofy faces while thinking of the story or characters!
