States of Mind

Most mornings, while driving to work, I listen to one of the news/traffic stations on the AM dial. It's informative, I feel like I know what's going on, and I feel like my commute is time less wasted. I also feel down about the world after listening to the news--most news is depressing.

This morning, I listened to music on the way to work. Well, not just music--there was a morning show mixed in with it as well. But it made me feel happy, that things were right & good, and it put me in a really happy mindset. I'm not so much "dragging myself to work", but starting to look forward to the next weekend... It makes it better. :-)

When I got into work, I headed to the kitchen to get some water. As I entered, Pam (our admin assistant & bookkeeper) was leaving. I said hi, she asked how my weekend was, I went "Great!" and she turned right back around and talked for a minute. Like I was glowing happiness and she was a moth who was drawn to the glow...

I've never thought of myself as that "kind of person." I tend to be boring, direct, and not much of a socialite. It was... weird when I realized it. But it was also great. It seemed like my little flame of happiness re-lit hers.

I'm happy thinking about it. It's a good feeling. I need to learn from my situation right now, and learn how to bring myself to this.

I'm a bit worried, though... there were some nasty e-mail passed around my group over the weekend (which I didn't check until I got here). My Director goes on mood swings, and his e-mails were on one Saturday. But then the Lead got into it as well, and there were a few nasty mails (well... three) exchanged.

Hopefully people have calmed down over the weekend. And thankfully my iPod is charged. I think I need to listen to more music. ^_^ (And maybe pump it into the office so my office mates will calm down and be happy too!)

    I mean, if a government "shelter in place" order isn't enough to get me to update my journal, what is? Well, it's the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak and…

  • What to do...

    Right now I'm thinking I'll try to go into work on Monday rather than getting a nothing-done start this week. But with my parents having left this…

    That's Dee & I's song. :`) I'd never seen the video for it before, we'd only listened to it. I had it as a ringtone for when Dee called me. Back…
