I woke up this morning feeling much better than yesterday.
Yesterday, I had a mini meltdown in my car on my way to my shitty job. I woke up at 5:45am, got on the road by 6:30, and still hit a shit ton of traffic on 395. Typical for DC, and quite minor in fact, but something that small triggered a tear fest in my car. I just feel like no matter what I do, or how hard I try, I can't win these days. Frankly, it's easy to feel that way when the biggest To-Do my boss gives me is to order pizza for the Department Lunch. I had to walk 6 blocks to get the pizza (because no, they did not deliver) and walk back (with 5 pizza boxes in hand) back to my office.
So good to see my MBA is really paying off! Sigh.
So now you know why I hate getting out of bed from Monday - Friday.
Luckily, this is just a TEMP job and I have to remind myself that the word TEMPORARY is in the name. This is not forever. And this is a means to end. I know something better is around the corner but in the meantime, it kinda feels shitty to be the office bitch.
This morning, however, I woke up in better spirits. Perhaps it was because I knew my boss would be out all morning, but also because there was this crispness in the air that really got my brain going. I started thinking about the things I wanted to accomplish this month and this is what I came up with:
- Read one book, preferably 2.
- Yoga! I just purchased a one month at Epic Yoga
- Hold a mini conversation in German
- Study Chinese every morning before work
- Run once a week
- Dance once a week
- Go to NYC for a weekend
- Stay focused and positive, no matter what.
