the waiting game

So, I have reached the point in my job hunt where I’ve got a job (a great one), that I would have started a week ago if it weren’t for paperwork. So, I’m waiting now for all the paperwork to go through. I’m not 100% sure (maybe we’ll say 93.4%) that everything will work out, so I’m resisting the urge to post all the details.

In the meantime, I still have a lot of time to kill, except I can’t really kill it with job hunting anymore. So, I’ve been whiling the hours away reading news, books, websites, practicing piano, guitar, running, reading the same websites again, and so forth. I know this kind of activity must sound like bliss to pretty much everyone else, but its really starting to drive me insane.

Does anyone have any great books or websites or drug addictions that they’d like to share? I just need something to pass a bit more time, then I’m sure my normal leisure inclinations will be plenty to fill all the extra minutes I have outside of work.

  1. Good suggestion! I’ve read it, but I am going to grab Quicksilver as soon as I finish my current project: Godel, Escher, Bach by Hofstadter
