Working Tons.

If I haven't called you lately, it's because I've recently started doing about 60 hour weeks. I'm a systems administrator for a network with about 1500 objects and several thousand users during the day, and I'm still teaching an enrichment course for a nonprofit course in the afternoon. It's going to be really hard for me to give up the money from the nonprofit, and hard to tell them that I'm too exhausted because I really enjoy the work.
The upside to this is that for the first time in my life, I actually have the choice whether or not to work, and I have designated some expendable in our budget. I'm thinking that this month or next, I will grab an MPC1000BK-N so I can play with music a bit without having to look at a computer. I'm growing a little tired of that. I can tell already though, my new job is going to teach me so much. It pays peanuts, but if I can learn as much as I think, I'll just grab a couple of certifications and go private sector after a year or two.
After a long and protracted university career, it feels really good to just work.
