I feel a bit better this morning. I fell asleep early on the sofa, listening to Phil playing on the PS2, and although I woke early (4:00 am), I still feel pretty good. I’ve been taking a homeopathic remedy for the infection from my tooth, and I think it’s finally having an effect. It was starting to scare me a bit: swelling under the jaw, hot feeling in that eye. Very scary stuff. But better now.
Being broke REALLY sucks.
I’ve been pushing hard for a huge new project at work, and I really don’t know why I’m bothering – aside from the fact that I can’t handle be bored. I want to totally re-work the site into a dynamic, database-driven site, table-free layout with CSS, totally accessible, that validates. But, considering the recent non-pay raise, we’d basically be working for free. And, to add insult to injury, when we’re finished no one will understand or care what we’ve done. Most people look back on the old, nasty-ass FrontPage site with nostalgia. (“At least we didn’t have to DO anything!”)
*sigh* Am I crazy? Probably. I should be doing as little as possible there, but I just can’t. I wouldn’t be able to force myself to show up in the mornings.
Plus, this will look VERY good on a CV, for both N and I. That’s a consideration.
Plusplus, I don’t want to sink to the level of laziness and apathy that most people who stay at the college have. I would rather muck stalls – at least I’d feel cleaner at the end of the day.
Well, off to the mines…
