The Good Kind of Stress
It’s Wednesday! Though today was full of stress, from the 10 hour day at work, the rush to get home and pick my wife up from the doctor, to the weekly meal plan and grocery shopping. Today was extremely stressful, and I managed to get everything done on my list with some time left over to finally sit down and relax. Oh, I didn’t mention the cooking I had to do, but I guess that falls into ‘weekly meal plan’.
I am relieved to see my wife in better spirits today, and actually kicking ass at work. I should be down in the office with her, but I am up in my bedroom writing this instead. That’s fine, I will go down there at some point, relax with a bottle of wine and a movie before I pass out and do it all over tomorrow.
I didn’t make a post after I got home from work yesterday, that’s totally my bad. However the only interesting thing that happened yesterday was dropping my 5th Generation iPod Classic on the ground and breaking it at work. Luckily they’re easy to fix, and I ordered all the parts required for repair. I was just bummed out since I modded the iPod and added an iFlash. I have it loaded with audiobooks and podcasts I usually listen to at work. 10 hours a day, listening to podcasts and audiobooks. I’ve cleared out entire series’ of both just working this job for the last few years. Right now, I am listening to Dune before the movie comes out. The unnerving thing about Dune is the complex universe timeline in correlation with the books. There’s so much to that universe, I don’t really know where to start, so I just stated with Dune, and I guess I will figure it out from there. I did consider looking up the order to read online, but I didn’t know what fun there’d be in that.
Overall, I had a good day at work. I do really miss hanging out with my friends. I miss them a lot, and I miss going places, going to cons, and visiting family, and I am worried about my family. Everyone is getting sick from one thing or another… I don’t know what I can do about it. Some of them think prayer is the answer. Maybe it is, I don’t know. I am not super religious myself, I often think about it though. Story for another time I guess.
Anyway, I hope everyone has a good rest of the week, I will catch you on the flip side and leave you with this tweet from earlier.
In a very serious tone, I'm going to tell my boss I can never work on-call during a full moon, and just leave it at that.— kai (@dirdwolf) February 4, 2021
