Why I’m back

Though I left the regular work world about five years ago, in a way I’ve not really started feeling like I’m self-employed until recently. As an interpreter, I had total choice over which assignments I accepted, as well as where and when. But once those jobs were on my calendar, I had a structure to my week that I would adhere to. Now, as an investigator, I have a long list of things to do and no particular time when they must be done. Many of them are things that I do at home at my desk and computer. I’m finding it a challenge to structure my days in a way that ensures that I make a lot of progress. Intrepid Reader Ben will be happy to hear that returning to blogging is one of the things I hope to use to provide myself with that structure.

I have three items I’ve identified as being vital to giving me a structured day.
– First, every morning when I brush my teeth after breakfast, I’m putting on regular clothes.
– Second, I vow to leave the house at least once each day, even if only for a quick run to the store.
– Third, when I feel the siren song of Netflix, which can pull me in for hours, I intend to sit down and write a blog post instead.

See you here from time to time.
