Relaxation... novel concept...

Oh... some revelations from this weekend (no timeframes or specific order on these... and obviously I'm talking about non-work related things with some of these concepts... While Mythic rocks to work at, it's still an office and a corporation):

1) Going back to my original spiked haircut
2) Maybe get some color sliced into my hair
3) Getting at least one tat (have a damn good idea for one, and the germation of a 2nd one)
4) Buy a (bow/solo)flex (going to stick it downstairs in front of the fireplace
5) Buy a Harley
6) I am who I am. If people don't like it, I've got a size 12 shoe I can stick somewhere. That also means that I stop being so "nice" in situations where someone's annoying the crap out of me.
7) I am WAY to anal about too many things that are "outside" of my control. Time to loosen up some. I'm tired of planning everything for everyone all the time. I'm going to pick times/places that I want to do stuff, it's everyone else's jobs to get there.
8) If people want me to help them with something, they'll ask. Otherwise I'll nod my head and filter away whatever they are telling me for possibly blackmail later (yes, seems to go counter to the whole Mr. Fixit concept.. but... Mr. Fixit is WAY too long of a story to get into... trust me, it makes sense).
9) When people do ask me my opinion, I'm not going to hold anything back. I'm a very blunt and forthwright person... Heh.

Even odds that Mom is going to freak when she reads about 2 and 3. Probably some of the others, too. She'll have to cope. Still love her dearly.

I've been forcing myself into a box for what I was expected to be for far too long... I'm finally in a place/position/headspace where I can try to remember the way I used to think and the stuff I wanted to be back before I was stuck in a seven day, on-call, 50+ hour a week grind for so many years.

I'm not retired yet (still working on that!), but there's no reason why I can't try to relax and enjoy where I'm at now.

And I'm not being militant about things... but I've just got to stop worrying about what people think about me. If they don't like me, that's their own damn problem. Not mine.
