pavement and the search for meaning

I downloaded a report about pavement and portland yesterday. It described what the city is doing to keep the streets maintained. I was bored by page 2.

That’s the problem with researching this new job right now – each small setback (an article that bores me to tears, an opportunity to talk with someone in the field lost) seems like a big setback. I see all the things that I’m doing not to move myself into a new career.

Gross. New career. It just sounds so adultish, and un-fun.
