The past two or three weeks, work has been very stressful for me, and mentally taxing. By the time I get home, the only words I can find are complaints and angry rants, with which I’ve decided not to pollute the original intent of this blog. Better to rest, to read, and do other things to attempt to recharge my batteries, most of which recharging takes place on the weekend.
I have aches and pains from staying glued to a computer screen and chained to my desk all day.
Insomnia has been my frequent companion, which I have largely unsuccessfully tried to kick to the curb.
I am behind in The Next Chapter, which I hope to soon remedy.
I am remiss in reading others’ blogs, which I also hope to soon remedy.
I am trying to be grateful that I even have a job given the state of the economy, sometimes more successfully than others, and I am wondering if I would feel better if I were merely physically fatigued, if mental fatigue is worse.
For now, I think these two songs best express where I am:
Phantom Planet — “Turn, Smile, Shift, Repeat”
Placebo — “Slave to the Wage”
