Real Feel


The word went out among my co-workers about my impending departure, so I’ve been fielding well-wishes all afternoon. It’s nice to be congratulated so much, but at the same time it’s surprisingly a lot of work. Up until now it all felt a bit dream-like, as if getting a new job were just something that I’d been thinking too loudly, but which wasn’t really real. Now it feels real.

Aside from that, my day to day routine hasn’t changed much. The actual work is the same. The commute is the same. The writing is the same, although I’m finally closing in on completing the rewrite of the chapter I was editing. I managed to cut a couple pages out of it, but I’m a little surprised that I didn’t manage to trim more volume. It’s one of the longest chapters in the book, but I only managed to trim about two pages. I’m going to give it a read-through on the bus ride home to give it one last comb-through, so maybe there will still be a few more trims that I can make.

This probably isn’t the world’s most interesting post: I’m still in a strange, transitional head space and I don’t quite know what’s on my mind these days. I’m somewhere between trying to focus on being present and trying to not think of anything at all lest I get swept into a feedback loop. With luck I’ll be back to my old self soon.
