Listening to: “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”, Ella Fitzgerald. Verve
After averaging four hours of sleep the past week, I’m looking forward to two nights straight of eight hours of continuous sleep tonight in a nice warm bed with my loving wife.
Right now, things have been very hectic at work as they try to encourage added performance from us. I managed to get an average work time of 38 seconds… a personal record for me. I hope I can keep it up over the next few days… so I’ll be able to exceed the standards and keep my job.
As for school, we went through four chapters of Chinese in just one class translating to about 20 Chinese characters to memorize. I hope I can get the hang of it and master it like the back of my hand. I think someday, perhaps… perhaps… my wife and I will do some missionary work in China, and it would be nice to have fluency in the language. Furthermore, I think that I’ll be working there often since there’s so much opportunity.
It’s been awhile, but with school going through smoothly now, I feel as if the whole world will be open to me soon. I know that I will not be a tech support rep forever. I know that someday, I will remove myself from this world of being underneath someone else’s thumb. I will be a head of a business… I don’t know yet which one…. but that level of responsibility and work will cross paths with me soon.
In the meantime though, I can’t afford to slack off in ANYTHING anymore. I can’t afford to vascillate and consign myself to being just mediocre anymore. I must be the best. I have to be! I owe it to myself, to my loving wife and my family.
