Obama’s set to announce his healthcare reform plans this week. When he does, my blogging activity will surely pickup.
My year-end real life responsibilities are getting wrapped up. With that the 60 hour work weeks will soon be over. I wonder how skewed our worldview is because of self-censoring: those of us with real jobs and real families are surely less likely to contribute to the cacaphony.
Tomorrow I travel to meet with some actuaries modeling healthcare reform. I’ll be back by Thursday when I hope to establish a much more regular posting pattern.
No matter, done is done is done. My remaining tasks to attain Fellowship in the Society of Actuaries are few. I have a “capstone module” experience and I need to sit for the Fellowship admissions course. If all goes as planned, I’ll be a Fellow on December 12.
It took an embarrassingly long time for me to complete all the examinations; I’m now entering my sixth year since I started. I lost some motivation during the “exam transition”. I also got married, bought a house, had a kid, am awaiting another kid, ran the Pike’s Peak Marathon twice, resumed my piano playing, and gained about 20 pounds of flab around my middle (after the aforementioned Pike’s Peak Marathons).
Been a busy six years. And fun … aside from studying periodically.
A public thanks to my beautiful and talented wife (BTW) for putting up with me. I’ll now have to find a new excuse to avoid chores. Let’s try one … “honey, I can’t change Charlie’s diaper because I’m writing a blog post” … think that will work?
