Dodging and Weaving

You know that feeling where all you want to talk about is that one thing and it means everything else around you shuts down?

The last few days have all been about trying to figure out how to get through my day at work without feeling ragey or sad or welling up at inappropriate times or really disappointed. The last few days have all been about trying to be content at work because I don’t want to spend the bulk of my waking hours feeling crappy.

The purple pants I wore yesterday helped.

Walking into work and saying hello to everyone in a cheery way helped.

My iPod helped.

Cutting myself some slack helped.

And that’s why I couldn’t post yesterday, because all I wanted to write was “Arrrgghhh!!! WHAT THE FUCK!!!” etc etc etc and so on and so forth.

In other news…

I’m growing out my hair and it’s entering the annoying stage. I combat this by carrying around hair ties and bobby pins everywhere I go. It’s definitely uneven, I definitely need a trim, it’s definitely too poofy, but I’m going to push over the hump before I give in to the scissors.

I swear there are exciting happy things going on (like the upcoming redesign) and they make me jump around in my seat with anticipation. I just want to show you all right-this-minute, but even I have to be patient about this one.

I’ve been plowing through more books (wee!!), which means more book discussions in the weeks to come. And an impending giveaway is on the horizon (I see it, out there, in the distance!).

More substantial writing tomorrow. And the next day even.

    Feeling like that at work is the worst. Especially when work is the reason you feel crappy.

    I hope all the exciting things coming up in life start balancing that feeling out really soon for you.

  2. It sounds (and probably is) trite, but once thing I’ve done to keep my mood out of the danger zone at work is to make the password for my computer something joyful. I have to type it a hundred times a day, so that’s a hundred reminders to stay positive, even if they’re minuscule.
