Anyway...on with the show

Obviously I didn't manage to get near a computer on miluim (except of course for my phone, on which I played far too many games of Solitaire), but it's probably just as well - a warblog it wouldn't have been, and how much can really be said about not managing to sleep because the TV and lights are on in the same room (huh, what kind of a soldier are you anyway?)

Well, the wife and kids were glad to see me home so I felt cherished which is good - and I did get a real break from work - though of course now I'm back with a vengeance (the program I "finished" before miluim is doing quite well, but now it's actually in use people are finding the bugs - well, software's never really finished, is it?).

I also had time to think - it's something everyone says they wish they had. Certainly 8 or more years ago when I was doing my long (well 4 months seemed long to me) stint in the army, I had time to think and I actually decided to turn my life around a bit - I came out of the army, got a new job, got married and moved into my new glorious era. I guess I must be somewhat complacent - I didn't make any real decisions to make huge changes in my life -I just chilled for 3 weeks, let my mind spin free and relaxed a bit.

Maybe to really change my life around I need a longer period of miluim (Heaven forefend). No - actually, I think my life is basically pretty good, and this time I didn't need to make any huge decisions.

Since I came back, I've been looking at some other people's blogs - particularly the Jewish blogosphere. On the one hand you could say there are a lot of people searching for the truth out there, but to me it mostly looks like bitterness and tilting at windmills - the blogs I blogrolled are ones I read because they are interesting - and I don't feel the writers are trying to show off how "in" they are - they're just writing what they want.

New years resolution (nearly the Chinese new year so why the hell not?) - I will also try to write for my own pleasure here - hopefully some of it will be readable to you.
