I'm currently working on a series of book reviews, churning out Hubs as best as my day job allows. While sitting at my computer and watching the clock for the time I have to leave to go to work, the phrase "Work gets in the way of life" popped into my head.
I hereby release that phrase into the Hubpages commons to be used freely without necessity of acknowledgement. Along with;
"Bugger this for a game of soldiers" and
"I didn't want to have an affair, she sucked me into it."
Happy Writing and Best Wishes..........ianto.
"It takes one to know one!"
"It takes more muscles to frown than to smile"
"You might as well have a good time!"
Work does get in the way of life. I know a few people who are doing what they love and having it support them too, but not many.
Sometimes I watch birds move about, flitting from a tree to a fence post, their tails flicking as they sit there, heads moving in those precise little motions they make as they furtively scan the grass for food. They do that all day. Swoop down, grab some tiny morsel that takes them no time at all to eat, then flutter off to some new vantage point. Over and over. That's their job, really. And I wonder if they like it. If they are happy because they truly have nothing else they would rather do.
Ah, I have been a very busy little bee
My new found freedom from the drudgery of working for other people has been great, I am loving spending my time making designs in photo shop and taking the camera out for an inspiration adventure

I have just started doing book reviews as well. I'm only on my 4th one at the moment though, it's taken me all day and I don't even have a job!!
Awww, its nice to know that people have noticed my absence. I moved out of my parents house and in with my boyfriend at the beginning of April and I finally got Internet connected last week, so I'm catching up with Hubpages!!
How you all doing?
Hope things are going well for you.
Between computers crashing and other projects I have been neglecting hubbing

I was thinking that the hub hopping tool is great and all, but it doesn't really address hubs that are older and have slipped through the cracks for months and even years.I was thinking that we could have an adopt a topic program.For example, I've been writing a lot of hubs on Nepal and have looked...

Are book reviews worth doing on Hubpages?I often write book or film reviews anyway, but what was wondering whether they were worth doing on here?

I'm pleased to announce that the new and improved flagging reasons that I've alluded to recently have finally arrived. We have broken down some of the umbrella categories like "Substandard" into more specific flags, to help you as users better identify rules violations, and help us...

I'm not sure if I have mentioned this before here, so: it would REALLY help if we got feedback on stuff we flag - if only on the stuff that admins decide does NOT warrant action. Many times I have been hesitant to flag because I'm not sure - just a little feedback would make me much...

I have read numerous hubs while hopping that I thought would be great if the writer did some editing or word smithing. I thought it would be nice to let people know that thier piece could be so much better with out trying to hurt anyones feelings. I have commented on a couple of pages...

I have a question. After all the arguments recently about publishing duplicate content I wondered about this hub:http://hubpages.com/hub/2008-Forex-Mark … ading-deskI am pretty sure I flagged it some time ago as being copied almost word-for-word from...
