There is a story about people like me in today's New York Times's Style section. I decided not to highlight the post because I don't want to give any potential employer an obvious reason not to hire me in the near-future. This compulsion of mine could be painted by some as a negative during the job search process.
Sometimes I lament, "why didn't I go into the foreign service?" The idea of being shipped out to Kazakhstan sends excited chills down my spine.
I'm currently in the process of overwriting. And I really hate overwriting which is something I do very well. I've also realized the more I write, the more I realize it is a life-long pursuit. I'll have to get a job, eventually.
I've also realized I'm beyond a geek. My big Friday plan is to wake up early, go to the annual library sale where I can pay $5USD for a big bag and fill it up with books. Then I'm going to go to the periodical section of the library and read India Today. I'm obsessed with learning which Indian colleges and universities made India Today's top 10 list.
P.S. The photo above is of the India-Pakistan border which is located in Punjab, India. I made a side trip there when I was in Amritsar.
