T.G.I.F.! This week has presented me with more administrative work than I thought would have been possible. Today I stopped answering the phone, ignored my e-mail inbox and acted busy while eating lunch in the hopes that no one would engage me. I wolfed down my food, thinking all of the time that everyone was just being a pain. My discontent for everyone had to have been revealed by my facial expression. None of the usual chatters talked to me during lunch. Upon returning to my desk I decided to find some good Karma to finish the day on a high note. I logged on to “Freshly Pressed” in search of something interesting to read. I came across this post. Maybe landing her can be chalked up to fate. The truth; this post has made me think about where my emotional balance has gone or where it might be going. On the one hand, I’d like to enjoy for a few moments the post’s humorous content, but I do not want to ignore its serious tongue and check commentary on social isolation. The post is well written, and it’s artistic creativity is alluring. Yet, I do not want to hate anyone (without good cause), and I prefer not to be hated (if avoidable). Time to finish my work with a smile on my face. Thanks.
