The 3pm post is late today. Mostly because I was too tired to write. While I do my best to schedule blog posts ahead of time, my day-job gets in the way and I don’t.
Why I Was Too Tired To Write
Like many writers I must work another job to support this craft. Because writing does not provide enough money for me to survive on.
My job working in a data center is good but sometimes it requires much physical labor. This week was one of those weeks.
I have nothing against manual labor, and quite enjoy getting the exercise. My problem with it this week is my team didn’t have enough help to spread out the labor.
Some of my coworkers have physical limitations so they can’t do as much physical labor as others. Splitting my team into two groups due to the pandemic doesn’t help either. I have to pitch in more. It sucks but them the breaks.
I had some blog posts scheduled ahead of time for this week but not for the entire week. I try to do more writing after work because I get inspiration for additional posts. Due to those reasons I didn’t have a post ready for 3pm today.
I’m Getting Too Old For This
As I get older, I realize I don’t want to do this extensive amount of physical labor anymore. Not because I’m too good for it, but it zaps my energy for my side businesses and to work on personal projects.
I’ve worked hard all this week and I’m dragging at the end of the day. My feet hurt and my knees ache a little. So when I get home all I want to do is sit on the couch and watch YouTube. And that’s what I’ve been doing.
This is the reason why I’m working so hard on my off days to create a business that will allow me to work from home. I do have some ideas, and I’m slowly working on them, but with the change in the economy, I don’t want to make the wrong move. Yes, that’s an excuse because I know people starting businesses right now, but I don’t want to be rash either.
Unfortunately, I’m not done yet. I have more manual labor to do tomorrow.
