Feeling an awful lot like a lost junior high school me; I am breaking out all over my face, my hair is in an extremely awkward growing-out stage, my body is doing unfamiliar things, I'm sure nobody likes me, and I'm clingy and bratty as hell.

On the other hand, I didn't have dreams about spreadsheets in 1988. I also had much more time to muse on the desperate misery* of my situation back then.

Thoughts on television: It's been a week and change without television, in the sense that there is no cable so there is nothing to watch. I have recognized the thought process (I think I'll just allow myself to relax in front of the TV for a few minutes...) that has wasted countless hours, and now it has no recourse, and thus those niggling things on the to-do list are all getting done. I did visit another person's home to watch a taped show. This was enough TV, and not too much. And it involved being social. I consider this experiment to be thus far a success. And a money saver.

This job does not change one fundamental thing** about my career situation, but it does give me more self-worth overall, and forces me to have discipline and focus. This is an improvement. It will come in handy when I someday do find the perfect life-affirming job. Yeah. Stop laughing!

I'm too indecisive to purchase one whiteboard.

Must away now.

*This is on the percieved desperate misery scale, not the actual one.
**No do-gooder-type aspect to it. I now work in a marketing department for chrissakes. Marketing pharmaceuticals, no less.

Well that's good!
Self-worth is a hard thing to come by these days. Excellent!

Also, what are you doing around 9:30 p.m. this Saturday night? Some neighbors would like to see you (and I think you know who that is). :D

Heyas! Long time no chat.
I'm still alive, despite rumors to the contrary.

Anyways, I hope your feeling better. *hugs*

I can tell myself that by marketing preventative medicine we might be helping puppies and kitties not have future maladies...

I so relate. *dramatic sigh*

And yay on the TVlessness!

I like you plenty! =)

It was good visiting at bookclub and neat to see the place with furniture in. I'm sure all the adjusting-time will be over in the next month or so as you become more comfortable with everything.

And you ARE helping sick puppies and kitties. =)

Everyone I know likes you. And neither of us will ever again have hair as oddlooking as in 1988.

If you can't actually do good, it's nice to at least do well at something; yay for jobs that improve the self-outlook.

PS - I may be the only person on the planet who thinks teevee is good for you. :)
