Well here I am again, still trying to do all the things that I'm trying to do with all this time that I have on this vacation week of mine. All I can say right now is that the more that things change the more that they stay the same, and that one day this week I'm going to have to try and get out and do something. Even if it means paying a visit to one of the local coffee shops flirting with the baristas. Of course, that's always easier said than done, at least as for is getting out. I mean. One of the things that I wanted to get accomplished this week was to try and be a little more robust with my writing this week, and so far, it seems I'm doing okay with it, but it's early yet. A lot can happen between now and Saturday are actually Sunday when I go back to work.
I am using some dictation software, which is definitely helping my cause, as some of you already know, and it's great when it does what it's designed to do, but there are times when I think that it has a mind of its own and is putting in what it wants to put in and not necessarily what you're saying. But it's one of those programs that the more you use it the more you get comfortable using it and the more accurate it becomes, and more accustomed it gets to your voice and your speech patterns. So is getting more and more accurate the more that I use it. So the circumstances that I find myself in at the moment, this will probably be the most. I will use this in any given time since I've had it, so hopefully, the accuracy will improve to the point, well I will have to do less and less, proofreading. So, with that in mind, I just keep on talking and watch through the miracle of modern technology my words appearing on the screen of my laptop.
I do hope that in the end, this will help with my writing, in that it will give me a more distinct voice, pardon the pun. So it's just a question of being able to do all of this full time, which is something else altogether. I do so look forward to the day when I will be able to do this full-time and I will be enjoying every minute of it. But the one minor detail that I need to take into consideration and there is the issue of money. That stuff we work so hard to obtain, yet so quickly slip through our fingers. I know that it does with me. So I do the best that I can do with the time and the tools that I have in order to get myself heard. Even now there are still so much that I have left to say but time now, is also a friend and enemy. It's a friend in that I have it, but enemy, and that it will run out much too quickly, not that I'm planning on going anywhere anytime soon but there are things that are simply out of our control.
So I know they will come a time, I don't know how, but I'm convinced that one day soon I will be able to devote myself full time to call my real work, and now what I do, simply for money. Understanding that we all need to work, because we don't work, you don't eat. The old Protestant work ethic. Of course, there are those who through no fault of their own are unable to work or hold what is given to mean gainful employment. And those people. Those individuals should be helped along. The problem that I have is with people who through long term drug or alcohol abuse, and suddenly attempt to get into the system and be supported by the government. Now the best of my knowledge no one held a gun to these people's heads and told him to abuse drugs or alcohol. So where do you draw the line? Maybe I'm being too hard or critical, but there are people that I know who are perfectly able to work, but somehow have managed to get into the system, and our branding whatever they can get both hands, and the government is gladly giving it.
Then you have those who have legitimate disabilities who have to wait sometimes years to get what they're entitled to because it's a legitimate disability. Whether of being too critical to cynical are simply being a realist, that's the way I'm seeing it right. At the moment and to you to figure out for yourself.
Sorry didn't mean to preach or to go down that road, but there are just times when you just have to spout and this was the point in time. Right chose to start spouting. It's all good
So it goes. Press on regardless.
