The Sunday Salon (Jan.29)
Well, it probably isn’t the books that have me dissatisfied, really. It’s the fact that I’m not where I’d like to be — not by a long shot — and that I can’t be there, just yet, either. I’m stuck in a waiting period, biding my time until it’s my turn. And, that sucks.
No, I’m not going to use this entire post to rant about my woes. But, I have been giving a lot of thought to where I’d like to go with my future. For one thing, I want to be my own boss. I’ve always wanted that. My grandpa was an entrepreneur, so it’s in my blood. And, the pull towards that is so very strong, that sometimes it overwhelms me. Problem is, I never really could land on an idea that I thought would work for me as a stay-at-home job. Now, though, I think I might just have come across one… and it’s funny, too, ’cause it’s something I’d been interested in back in my teens, but then fell away from, following others’ ideas of what was “best” for me. I’ve learned, mind you, that only you know what’s best for you.
Anyhoo. At work, I’ve been trying on some more glasses, and much as I already bought a pair a while back, I’m thinking, now, of getting a second pair, just so I have a backup. Not that I need one, mind you! LOL. I just really like these…
They’ve got just a bit of that old-fashioned “cat” look to them that they’re somewhat retro. And, they’re the only pair of plastics that I can wear — all of the other ones are either too tight on my head, or they’re too dark for my complexion. Now, we just have to talk hubby into letting me get this second pair. ;)
On the book front, I’m about to start reading “Divergent” by Veronica Roth, today. It’s on the “2012 Book Blogger Recommendation List“, and I know it’s wildly raved-about, so I’m going to give it a try.
I still haven’t read “Matched” by Ally Condie, but I still plan to. It’s a library book, and I was able to extend my hold, so I have until the end of February to get it read. “Divergent“, on the other hand, has a two-week limit on it, so it’s got to come first, now.
I also have home from the library a couple of books on HTML 5 coding. One is by Microsoft, and the other is a “for Dummies” quick reference. I have hopes to read at least one of these before it has to go back to the library — probably the quick reference manual, as it looks like it’ll be easier reading, for one, and it also seems like I’ll be able to learn it quicker with that than I would with the other book (which is a heavier, and thicker, tome).
