No News is Good News

The bad news: I'm still busy.

The good news: At least I'm getting paid for it. My current circumstances also leave a fairly good impression on people -- after all, I'm doing freelance work where most people would be lazing around spending money and watching porn.

The bad news: I'm going to have a regular job pretty soon. And when that happens, I'm going to have to find a way to fit all this together.

The good news: I'm not worried. I have experience juggling a lot of things. I've handled as many as twenty ongoing projects at certain points; This is actually a little more convenient than usual.

The bad news: Whenever I'm busy, I tend to set certain endeavors off to the side for inordinately long periods of time.

The good news: Said endeavors are almost always the ones of lowest priority. If it's not important, then I figure that it can wait. But I usually ask for deadline or milestone dates, just to be certain.

The bad news: Regardless of such a thing, I will probably cause a few people to worry... mostly about whether or not I can finish my obligations in time.

The good news: I do send them updates. Beyond that, though, I can't do anything about their apprehensiveness. It's one of those things that can only get resolved when you drop the finished product on their table.

The bad news: When these "busy" modes occur, I usually end up consuming too much of a certain stress reliever. Sometimes it's an assortment of junk food, other times it's a certain restaurant that serves fried foods. Whatever it is, it's usually unhealthy.

The good news: Not this time, it seems. I've had three bottles of milk tea in the last three days, and I have this strange urge to pick up another case or two tomorrow.

The bad news: Granted, it's not exactly unhealthy... but it's weird.

The good news: It's weird, and that means that it's right up my alley.

Just to clarify: Despite what the post says, I haven't received or accepted any offers for a full-time job at the moment. I just happen to be very optimistic about my chances.

And just in case you're a company who's got my resumé on your short list: Hire me already. :)
