|09:28 am - 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!)
Current Mood: optimistic

*hugs* I hope the e-mail nasties have faded away and everyone's pleasant to deal with today.
Maxis is teasing me. Their Sims 2 site says 'early spring 04' then I find gamestop saying august and a newspaper article linked from a fansite saying June. Big teases! LOL

Probably not a tease... sounds like a case of corporate miscommunication. As in, there's someone who's resonsible for the web site but no one ever told them about the delay...
I'd believe August the most. Why? Because GameStop has to actually deal with the pre-ordering people who bug them continuously about the release date. ^_^

Hehe, you're probably right. Well, at least that makes it more of a birthday present than just a go out and splurge. SRP is $49.99. Funny thing is, the original release projection I found was 3/22 ;)
Laundry is done! At least today's round. Now for lunch and nap and then some EQ.
Sometimes I have NPR wake me up, so the news gets incorporated into my dreams.. which can be disturbing.
