Today I started a new shift at work (I'd tell you where, but I'd have to unleash the hounds, ninjas, etc to vanquish all who know where.) and decided to update.
Some things I've noticed already about this. I don't have to wake up at the crack of dawn...more directly, between the hours of "Oh God-thirty" and "You gotta be kidding me-o'clock". I've never been a morning person, voicing my oppinion that the day shouldn't start till noon and that everyone should be nice and inobtrusive till then. I believe famous cartoonist Jim Davis penned "If we were meant to pop out of bed in the morning, we'd all sleep in toasters." Not just pretty words. :)
The nicest part of this has to be that I can live my life closer to my natural circadian cycle and stay up late. I've missed playing on X-Box Live with my best friend (and brother from another mother) Jon. It also allows me to help out with stuff in my family as well. Family is very important to me, and this allows me to be more flexible with my time and do that.
I'm also trying to do more artwork. I'm working with Disciple Training at http://www.discipletraininggear.com/ to make shirt designs, setting up this blog and getting more sleep.
This is turning out to be a very exciting time. :D
