WOW, What a Wake Up Call
Well, this week I had to do something I swore I would never do, go back to work in an office. I had been fortunate enough not to have to do that for the past 2 years, I had been able to stay home, travel, and work almost full time on WA since joining. But like so many other people that I'm having the good fortune of meeting here, I have to supplement my income for a while, until the site starts paying.
What a shock to the system, having to get up so early, spending so many hours driving/working/getting ready for work. Half of the day is devoted to just that, getting your meals ready in advance (I don't buy my lunches), the laundry, preparing a weeks worth of meals for the animals, and so on .....
And to add salt to the wound the weather in our part of Canada has been horrible for the past couple of weeks, LOTs of snow, freezing rain, one of the most dangerous conditions to drive in. Next week it would seem will not be any better, we'll be getting snow every day and another bout of freezing rain.
If I needed a wake up call to work hard on learning everything I can from WA and making my site work, this is it. I had forgotten how much of life you don't see when you work outside of the home.
Why go back to an office job? 2 good reasons, that's where my skills are so the learning curve is almost non existant, and the salary is amazing. That is the bright side, I can plan to work 6 months a year, and take 6 months off to study on WA.
So it's not all bad, but it's a shock to the system non the less. I'm using this experience as a big kick in the butt, a huge motivator to reach my goal of being my own boss.
