For the last four years of my life, I had to work insane hours and long nights and even weekends since my main client was in the automotive vertical and would have commercial spots during the Super Bowl. Most of my Januarys were shot, as every work night was a long one preparing massive search campaigns to capture all the Super Bowl commercial traffic. I remember the last two Januarys never even going to the gym more than once or twice.
It feels strange to not have to work tonight and knowing that I didn’t have to work late hours for all of last month. You always tend to think that when a huge load has been lifted off your chest that you will feel relieved, but I think in this case, it just feels kind of weird. It’s a good weird, but still weird. And I’m also proud to say that I really don’t care about the Super Bowl or who wins since I have never cared for watching sports.
It will be a nice, calm night for Chris and me. I love it.
