Today, I woke up feeling terrible. For the last week or so, I’ve actually been waking up tired. Not the normal “first thing in the morning” tired… but physically tired. Probably due to the hours I’m working, and I should take a break. Today I got a chance. I had the possibility of a Blackberry being dropped into my lap. This would give me 24x7 email access. This would be a good thing… for the people at work. While I am generally reachable 24x7 anyway, having the ability to check my email 24x7 means I would have more means to be actually working. This is a bad thing for me, because I am, what most would call, a work-a-holic. If I have work in front of me, I will do it, regardless of the time, or the day. I already have 24x7 nationwide internet access courtesy of Verizon.
So why didn’t I take the Blackberry? Actually I was going to, was even filling out the form for it to be reaquisitioned to me. They hired a new director, who is far more important than I am, and as such, he gets the Blackberry. Hooray for me, no Blackberry.
On the other hand, I am trying to get out more, and I am planning on getting back to the gym some time soon. I need to do something other than work 18-20 hours a day.
