Great news! I didn't get beat up OR humiliated on the bus today. Sure, I arrived at my stop 145 minutes early this morning. And big whoop if I scanned my Metropass at the wrong time on my way home. The point is, I made it to work and back here relatively unscathed. And when I got home from work, instead of being inundated with 100 of my former roommates friends, as I did in the past, I came home and grilled a delicious, healthy dinner with the new roommies. Sometimes the perks of change sneak up on you.
At any rate, I managed to get back to work today. I was nervous. I was scared I had forgotten how to do my job. I was all "What do I do again??" But instead, I fell a$$ over teakettle back into my comfortable routine. I got more done today than I do in any given month. I was all spreadsheets and sales kits and before I knew it, it was 2 p.m. and I hadn't taken a bathroom break yet. I'm pretty sure most overachievers eventually develop bladder infections.
Anyhoozle, despite the fact that I kicked buttowski at work it, it turns out I woke up too early, left too early for the bus, and basically wasted a lot of time just waiting around before and after work today. That's what I get when I overestimate time and always err on the side of getting there/getting things done early. But maybe I was just overly ready to get back to bidness today. Because eventually, I was at work, tackling project after project, just thinking "I'm back in control, yo!" and it felt very very nice.
Meanwhile, Claire and I just hooked up Geo's enormotron TV in her basement, and we are now enjoying the fruits of our labor. A giant Conan O'Brien head? Yes please! I'm exhausted now, but I feel good, guys. I feel like I've gotten a lot accomplished today, and I'm all "King of the World"-y for right now. I'm assuming this feeling will last oh, I don't know, for about 8 hours and then I'll be at work tomorrow being all "I gotta get out of here!" I don't know. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
Okay, well, Claire is calling me to see a hilarious YouTube video, so duty calls. Thanks for all your supportive thoughts this morning when I was tackling the white whale that was my New Bus, by the way. It definitely helped!
