I haven’t written about personal things in this blog in quite some time. Why? Because (and thankfully) I’m living a slightly stressful free life. However, for some reason lately I’ve been remembering people I haven’t though of in years, sometimes decades. Now I’m watching the best sci-fi show of my childhood. I couldn’t have a better weekend.
One of the hardest lessons for me is to leave work at work. I’m sure I’m not the only one that complains things could be better this way or that. But we all know – it just isn’t going to happen – EVER. So why worry about it? It’s just me wanting to live in that “perfect world”. Therefore, I’m slowly but surely snapping myself out of the dreamworld.
For the last week I have focused on getting what I need done for the day – that’s it. I’m not worried about what people do or say to me. I’m not worried about “losing my job”. There are plenty of other fish to fry in that frying pan. It makes for a more peaceful day at home afterward. Less stress.
I don’t know why but I thought about a couple people in my past. Where are they now? What are they doing? Two are deceased, one is retired, three have moved from fields we use to work in to something different. The point is we all move on down different paths in life.
So I got bored doing the same thing at home over and over – usually something evolving around programming. I needed something new. I don’t watch any TV (except Big Brother) and I’ve seen my saved movies 1000 times. I ended up seeing something about Battlestar Galactica in something I was reading. Snap – there we go!
I know exactly where I was watching the pre-2004 series. A television with no cable attachments, no larger than the size of a modern, small box, microwave, in my parent’s bedroom (where the 2nd TV was located). Cylons, Baltar, Apollo, Starbuck, Adama..the list goes on. That was my world.
Only the Battelstar Galactica 1978 movie was available. There are also the three seasons of Battlestar Galactica (the modern version 2004). I’m still hunting down the original BG series.
Sometimes you just need to feed the child in you.
