I’ve been traveling an awful lot lately. This week is the seventh in a row in which I’ve flown at least once. Almost all of those trips have been for work (I did take a couple days off to go to Philadelphia for the seder). They generally aren’t long flights, but it’s still tiring. On the other hand, I’ve had the opportunity to see some really interesting places. The next few weeks are looking about the same, so this is just my life for now I think. I have already qualified for elite status on Alaska Airlines for next year, so that’s nice.
One way in which this sort of lifestyle is easier for me than for a lot of people is that I don’t have a family or any particular obligations at home that would make it difficult for me to travel this much. I’m getting to the age where a lot of my friends are getting married and having kids, so I’m no longer the kind of young person who could be expected to do this sort of thing as a matter of course, but as it happens I’m not at that point in my own life so it still works. It’s not a bad life, really, and I’m gaining a lot of valuable experience. The projects that are the reason for most of this travel are mostly going well, too, which is encouraging. Anyway, things are good, even though I don’t have much time and energy left for blogging.
