I don’t know why, but I was able to relax last night. I had a good day at work, got stuff done, and just before I left the office I checked my horoscope… and it said ‘You should relax today! Enjoy the weather or just sit around and do nothing, and be happy.’
I don’t believe in horoscopes, but somehow, that gave me the impetus(??) needed to just sit back and unwind and not worry about productivity. Got home, ate, watched Office Space (excellent movie for those stressed at work), l33ched Love Hina swag, took a nap, showered, watched the Simpsons, listened to some music, worked on a song (but in a casual sort of way) and then went to bed. Not bad at all.
Of course, every day I sit back and do nothing is another day closer to the fuzzy deadline for getting Ultra done…
Rather than say ‘I hope my readers will understand the delay in starting UE’ I’ll say ‘I know my readers will understand’ and just relax and not let it pressure me too much. At least, not today. Tomorrow’s another matter; stress seems to hit me in day long chunks depending on my mood.
On a sour note, the kiddies are back in school, which means that ’tis the season for horrendous commuter traffic and I get the honor of waking up earlier just to be forced to leave work later because I’m delayed en route. Argh.
