I am so tired. Even typing is taking effort. I haven’t gotten enough sleep lately–a combination of going to bed a little too late and getting up on time for the past week or so. But that’s okay. It’s better than going to bed way too late and getting up way too late. It means I’m halfway to my goal.
But what really killed me was the last two hours of work today. I was SO STRESSED. I think that’s the most overwhelmed I’ve ever felt at work. I felt like I was about to explode. It was a case of having too much to do in too little time. And then the office got kind of loud in a Friday afternoon sort of way, and I just couldn’t handle it. So in lieu of going ballistic and taking off people’s heads, I frantically grabbed all my stuff and rushed out the door. The quiet outside was heavenly. The ride home was slightly harrowing, since it was rush hour and a few other people seemed to be in a similar mood, but once I got home all I felt was fatigue.
I have the impression that some people go through this every day. Unless their business is saving lives, it seems to me they should seriously rethink their line of work and maybe their approach to life in general. But maybe I’m just saying that because I’m a Nine and don’t like unpleasant emotions.
On the bright side, I did get to watch Enterprise tonight, and you know what? I actually liked it! It’s the first time since the premiere that I’ve been able to simply enjoy an episode without feeling uneasy about the acting or some other problem. I actually found myself thinking it was too bad there are only a few episodes left.
Well, I still have an hour of work left to do today, so I will drag my way through it. I came up with a strategy on the way home for how to approach this project, so I should be okay. Plus I’ve calmed down since 5.
