in my entire working career i think i've only gotten martin luther king day off once, and it wasn't even a full day, i think i still went to work and the boss just let us out early. today was no exception as i continued to slosh my way through layers of code. at least it was sunny, and cold enough that i was glad to be indoors. january is already half over, that was quick. once i get beyond this month, things will be better, i won't be so swamped with work. i don't mind it really, winter is the best time to work anyway because there is such a lack of things to do. i just want to make enough money so i can stop working for a while (a few months). my days are grey but that's only going to make me appreciate life a little bit more once i get some color back. i think people work too hard. i think i work just enough to pay the bills and to have some to spend. what the future holds for me i don't know because i'm definitely not saving any money, but i do know is i don't want to work all the time. i never thought i'd live my life like this, but the idea of being in an office seems less and less appealing to me. life has dealt me this hand and i think i'm going to hold for now.
this day was particularly boring since there wasn't any mail deliver due to the federal holiday. i heated a pair of toaster oven pizza for dinner and alternated between the golden globes and 24. that's my reward for a hard day's work.
