Night life-

Well, I have been on the night shift for around two months. I seem to be stuck living at night, even at home. Up until now I have been experiencing some personal conflict over this. I guess I feel a desire to return to the regular schedule while at home with the family.

My body does not seem to want to do this. Perhaps I will just have to go with what is happening and not fight it. I will remain nocturnal both at work and at home.

I have been gaming rather intensely the last two weeks. I am trying to accomplish some things in World of Warcraft before the expansion. I have a couple of months. Since this game is a big part of my life, I am excited about the expansion. I am hoping that the added solo content proves satisfying.

Though the game is massively multi-player, I often just play on my own and don't go with groups or join raids. That is a big aspect of the game, but I really enjoy exploring and advancing some select elements of the game that suit my own style. Raids and groups require commitment, and I want to be free to enter the game and leave the game whenever it suits me.

Now that I will have a huge block of time in the night, I need to assess some writing goals. I just read How to Get a Literary Agent, and will next seek a good reference for Publish on Demand. I am not yet at the point where I have something ready to submit, so this is a good research time.

My next major event is a trip to Oregon to visit my family. I will provide some details in the near future. I am making this trip a bit more of an adventure. I think it will be fun.

I think I may be ready to sleep, now. I am going to try.

Let's see, I have to type fast so I can remember what I wanted to say.
1) nightlife...I used to work the nightshift, well, the evening shift. For almost 5 years, worked the 3 to Midnight shift. I liked it. It gave me time to do stuff in the day but still let me stay up for awhile at night. I think it may be natural for me since I tend to move towards it whenever I can.
2) Warcraft....I have never played it although my sister is big into it and I have watched her play once or twice. I just dont get it. Maybe if I was playing I would see the fun but ...nope I don't get. To each his or her own.
3) Cool! A trip to anywhere is great. Hope you have fun in Oregon. Oregon is on my list of places to visit. Some how I have managed to miss it but everything I have read or seen in pics makes me want to visit.
