Another basically good day today. I'm liking this.
Not a whole lot happened today. I woke up earlier than normal for my dentist
appointment which went fine. I have to wake up, again, earlier than "normal for
me" tomorrow for a doctor's appointment.
Talked to Joey for a while tonight. Things continue to look fine. I love talking
to her. We're going to go to an awards ceremony tomorrow. She's going to go to
the graduation on Friday, and we'll do the movie thing on Saturday. I think it's
almost time to put my walking on air shoes on.
For over a year, I've been involved with constructing a project that has taken
up a great deal of my time and interest. Very recently, this project has
mysteriously changed focus and I've apparently been shoved aside in the process.
Instead of having to deal with the more and more frustrating conditions, I
withdrew my commitment to this project tonight.
It's amazing to me that the large amount of time, work, and dedication that
I've logged with this project can so easily be ignored. The good news is I'm
free from the responsibilities that went along with being involved and can begin
to about the same project in a much more construvtive manner.
Being shoved aside and unappreciated hurts. But, the feeling of no longer being
attached to what is clearly a sinking ship is slightly comforting. What's even
more sad is the fact that I have made several friends while working on this
project and no doubt they have heard, or will hear, different stories and have
a different take on things. In reality, I'm more content and excited about the
future projects in my back pocket but what hurts even more than being shoved
aside is that the few people I continue to respect a great deal might have been
painted a different picture of me than of what truly exists. If that makes any
I guess that was a little excitement in an otherwise not too exciting normal
life. I'd rather have had more pleasant things to say, but in the end I'm
doing quite well and looking forward to the next few days.
