Well all of my rent issues seem to have been taken care of as of Monday so I will be moving my bed, dresser, and secondary computer desk to Columbus on Sunday with Tom. Which is a huge weight off of my shoulders as I can start settling in up there and get a “work pattern” established. Now some of you may be saying “what is a work pattern?” right now. Now I’m sure that there is a much more technical term for this but it is what I call getting into a 10-6 schedule and forcing yourself to be productive. This may sound funny to all of you who work at somewhere other than your home but to me it is very hard. I have a 15 step commute from my bedroom to my “office” and it is quite a job to actually work. Especially when 20 things need to be done around the house or the tv, xbox, phone, book, etc. are calling to you all the time.
So what is the title of your post about anyway, Nick? All you’ve talked about so far is the fact that you don’t have the willpower to make yourself work and that you are moving some stuff from one place in Ohio to another. Well, that is totally correct, but as some of you know I live in two different places. I hold a residence in Columbus, Ohio as well as Steubenville, Ohio as I had mentioned in an earlier post. This is normally a really nice thing until weeks like this pop up. I forgot both my business and personal checkbooks in Steubenville and had to drive back there to pick them up. A 3 hour drive normally won’t affect me much but today it just seemed to drain the life from me. I think this is due to the fact that I had to drive out to Mary Rutan Hostpital in Bellefontaine on Monday already this week. But, alas, that is how my life works and it seems to fit the title of traveling salesman.
On a more computer related note it seems that MacWorld has been good to all of the Apple zealots around the world (including myself). They came out with a $499 Mac called the Mac mini and a new version of the iPod call the iPod Shuffle. I plan on purchasing the iPod Shuffle sometime in the next week or two and will try and have a review handy for everyone to read soon after said purchase. I think I’ll also pick up a Mac mini in the next 6 months as well. My old macs are unable to run the newest versions of Safari last I checked so I need a more up to date “test” machine to check my browser compatibility issues.
This last little bit goes out to Reyhan Dhuny who was wondering what happened to my layout. I had installed the Zen layout by Michee Rose when I first put WordPress up in order to get rid of the default layout you currently see as to spruce things up a bit. I took down that layout because I didn’t think it reflected what I wanted this site to feel like. I am in the process of building a template for this site between work on client sites and should have it up sometime next week if all goes well. I’ll make sure to post a screen shot of it when I get a finalized look nailed down in Photoshop.
