I Feel the Need … the Need to Read

14 Jan

It’s hard to believe that I’ve only been at my new job for a week and a half now. It feels like longer, and I mean that in the best possible way. Really. But of all the things I expected to miss, not surprisingly, the thing I miss the most is my commute. Which is not to say I’m unhappy with driving a half hour each way versus spending 45 minutes to an hour on the T. In fact, I quite enjoy driving to work, spending my mornings getting some extra time with Matty and the gang, and getting home at night before 6 p.m. No, what I miss is that quality time I had to read all my magazines. Would you believe I’m still trying to make my way through a two-week-old issue of Entertainment Weekly? My new issue of Rolling Stone showed up yesterday and I have no clue when I’m going to read that. God help me when my other magazines show up in the mail.

I know what you’re thinking: It’s a terrible problem for anyone to have. And yes, I’m definitely in mini-crisis mode. What’s made the situation worse is that Monday I decided I would start bringing magazines with me to work so I could read during lunch. Of course, that night, How I Met Your Mother put the kibosh on that plan (see below). So, maybe I just won’t read as much as I used to. Maybe before long I’ll start canceling some of my subscriptions. Or maybe I’ll just have to watch less TV and make more time to read at home. Whatever I do, I guess it’s safe to say I won’t be reading a magazine at work anytime soon. Thanks, Marshall.
