do people actually write 'dear diary' in their journals?Wednesday, July 09, 2014
Truth be told work has kicked into high gear and I've found myself coming home, taking a shower and going straight to bed. Except yesterday--I went out straight from a 10 hour day that was full speed from 9-7 for my friend Andrew's birthday. Being out and about was nice, but unfortunately not energizing enough to keep me awake very long. I left less than 2 hours after to catch a train that would get me in after 10. Cue undress, shower, sleep. Thank goodness I've gotten back into the habit of picking out my clothes on the weekends.
The good part about this has been that I've actually been sleeping! Round of applause all around. I've discovered that there apparently is a craft to it a successful night's sleep-- a.c. on until the morning, the proper amount of clothing (gigantic night shirt mandatory, pants & socks a total no-no), and the perfect number of pillows (3-4). Just in case I find myself at a new job with horrible nightmares and a broken sleeping pattern once again, this'll be my savior.
But I can't complain. Because on weekends it's not there. I'm free to think and do and be whatever I choose (which is sometimes nothing at all). And there isn't the drama to follow me or the fear of what Monday will bring. Every day is Russian roulette-- but not emotion-wise. It's just work. And for me, it's better that way. But don't get me wrong, there is fear-- but it's the good kind that scares you into wanting to do your best.
