It’s amazing how many different things I seem to get myself involved in.
Some things take hours upon hours of sitting in front of a computer figuring out how to work code (that I have no previous experience with), so I can get a stupid chat program to work on a phpBB2 site. Then there’s other things that people want me to do that may take only 15 minutes to do, and I just can’t (don’t want to) find the time, but reluctantly find the time just before they leave.
My dad always says that when it comes to business, it makes you more valuable to be the “Go-To Guy”. I have learned and practiced that in my professional life for the past few months, and it seems to be what they like about me. I just wish I knew where to draw the line in my personal life, because sometimes I feel like people take advantage of the fact that I have more than average knowledge about all things technical.
Of course, when I say “all things technical”, I am referring to the layman’s viewpoint. I know that I just have an analytical mind that can figure stuff out, and that works in my favor.
It’s kinda like this web site. There are some people out there that think creating and running a site like this is something that is incredibly hard. It might actually be for them. But, I know how to find information, and use mostly precreated code to do all of this. It’s not the “rocket-science” some people think it is.
Anyway, my point is that I am keeping busy with this and my church’s site. We’re looking for a house. I’m also mapping out and planning to install a network at the church. We’re taking the youth to go camping next weekend, and my wife was telling me that we need to spend some more 1 on 1 time with the youth during this summer on days other than “church” days.
I got myself into most of it so I guess I better stop complaining.
