Far From Idle….

This is what I've been doing with the blog lately.

The title of this blog stems from my last name. Idle. (My last name is Idleburg.) Lately, at least in regards to my blog I have been everything but Far From Idle.

According to, the following is the definition of idle…


1. not working or active; unemployed; doing nothing: idleworkers.
2. not spent or filled with activity: idle hours.
3. not in use or operation; not kept busy: idle machinery.
4. habitually doing nothing or avoiding work; lazy.
5. of no real worth, importance, or significance: idle talk.
6. having no basis or reason; baseless; groundless: idle fears.
7. frivolous; vain: idle pleasures.
8. meaningless; senseless: idle threats.
9. futile; unavailing: idle rage.
Definitions 1,2 and 4 tie in the most with what I have been doing with this blog lately. Nothing.
To those who have read or subscribed to my blog, I will do better. Initially, the goal with my blog was to figure out what I haven’t figured out. I honestly felt like I was whining. Writing forced me to confront these issues, however I purposely let the writing fall off. Since I am still very new to the blogging world, I believe it would be better for me to set more realistic goals with this.
In doing some thinking, I plan to post at a minimum one article a week on Sundays. I think this is more manageable for me at this time than three or more articles a week.
In the mean time, I’ve actually been doing a lot of things.
Here is a quick run down:
  •  Graduation Planning
  • Senioritis Struck. lol
  • I’ve been interviewing at a lot of different companies.
  • I have a new mentor. (I think my total at this point is 3.)
  • I became a contributor on the GentlemanREDUX blog.
  • One of my venture is off the ground and running. (More details soon)
  • My other three ventures/ideas are moving along well.
  • My current job is going to let me stay with them at least until the end of May. (This is great because once I graduate, I can’t work there. In short, my supervisors rock.)
  • I graduate in like two weeks!
  • It took me almost four months to actually get excited about graduation.
  • I’ve recently learned that I am not as busy as I claim to be. I’ve figured out that I have been using busyness as an excuse. (More about this in another post)
