(I had to include this one because this is the most hilarious face ever.)
Through some very scientific studies, I have come to the conclusion that I have two working states:
- OMG I'm interested in EVERYTHING, must learn how to build a website, manage a database in Hadoop, take better pictures, market ecommerce products, create 3 more blog features and learn Mandarin RIGHT NOW!!!! (Yes, there are 4 exclamation points in my head.) Oh and right, I have to do my day job.
- Indifferent withdrawal from #1.
Now many people would argue that I should just find a happy medium and stick to it. I've tried that. It doesn't really work for me. I fall prey to the basic laws of inertia - An object in motion stays in motion. An object at rest stays at rest. I'm infinitely more productive and efficient with almost more to do than I can handle. Now, there is a burnout level (and I have, in the past, found it) that I need to watch out for, but otherwise, I've come to terms with how I handle my interests and implementing. And I rather like it.
Moral of the story -- I think I'm gearing up into State 1 again. Hopefully that means that there will be some good things happening on this blog. (For example, I'm in a desperate need for a site redesign. Ahem.)
