this bed is too soft
the new job means i don't have to get up crazy early, and this winter i've actually seen some honest-to-goodness real sunlight in the morning and afternoons as a result. none of the going-to-bed in the dark and waking-up in the dark for me this season; and to be perfectly honest, i have noticed a difference. i'm clenching my jaw less, moping around less, going out and doing stuff more. oh sunlight and vitamin D, i suppose this proves i am your slave. i'm okay with that, as long as you both stick around. in any case, i like not getting up at zero-dark-thirty, and don't mind working five days a week because a) i don't have to get up crazy early and b) big girl paychecks. also, we are busy at work; the day flies by and when i leave it, i do honestly leave it behind. i might take a few moments to be quiet, because i talk to people all day, but that's all.
a friend at work bought me this adorable zen garden for my desk, along with a mug full of treats. some sour patch kids, chopsticks, a nail file and this crazy orange polish. it sounds crazy, but i think i'm too old for neon nail polish (because 34 is like old, man) so i only put it on one nail. i think that will probably end up looking stranger than just using the polish on all my nails, but it makes me happy. i like the contrast too, even if it is a bit silly. one orange, nine grey. seems reasonable to me.
