Journal Entry

Sat 3 Mar 2007

Too often I would hear men boast of the miles covered that day, rarely of what they had seen. -- Louis L'Amour

For the past couple of weeks, it feels like I have been doing exactly this... doing, doing, but not paying attention, just trying to get through the day.

At my day job, I traded positions with another employee this past week. I work at a screen printing company, I used to run a small printing machine making decals and car magnets. Now I set up the screens for all four machines that run in the building.

Pros: I get to work alone and have a radio. Cons: The work is much faster paced, there is constant lifting involved, and I am responsible for setting up orders for seven other people. Tho the cons outweigh the pros, I was not demoted nor promoted. It was an entirely lateral move that was out of my hands.

And yeah, I'm not sure I'm happy with it. And I've been stressing about the whole situation.

So, I come home, and I can't relax. So I've been doing chores most days. Just odds and ends. And then take maybe an hour or two for myself at the end of the day. And it's not enough time to get organized or get my brain thinking about good things. And it's not enough time to read or get in a decent journal entry.

And so I am still buzzing when I finally lay down at night. And so I don't sleep well.

So this weekend really needs to be like a mini-vacation for me. I need to quit worrying about crap and think happy thoughts.

Possibly involving some retail therapy at Amazon or VeganEssentials.

Definitely invloving some reading. Writing. Maybe Drawing.

And maybe a couple post dated static8 entries. I'll let you know...
