a separate update with focus on work

For about a year and a half, I've worked entirely from home, sitting at my home desk, just me and the laptop. Focused as much as I can...

... and it's been horrible.

At times, I've thought that it was the work itself... but I'm not entirely convinced that's really it.

However, something I've come to realise is how much of a social animal I am. There's this craving for interacting with other humans when truly eats me up when I'm alone too much. You can imagine in what state I am after having been home alone... really, STUCK at home alone for something like three days. I go crazy.

So the last few months, I've been thinking of what I can do to alleviate this, to have other humans to interact with and expand my horizons, do something other than just computing. I got inspired by a few friends, and figured that driving a cab could be a good option.

I signed up for the required education last month, and it looks good so far. I passed one of the tests last friday, two more to go plus a driving test.

Does it mean that I'm giving up computing entirely? While I've contemplated doing so, I don't really think so. But it's obvious I need something else as well, at least for a while.
