Well, I finished the first week at my job and it seems OK. Typical
stressballs rolling around the office, which just triggers me to react
in the opposite way. It should work out well once stuff actually starts
to get done and I can centralize control in my position, which is what
they want. There's money to be saved and stress to reduce simply by
being more efficient and timely.
So aside from that, the metro sucks! Jesus christ, monday and tuesday
is horrible on the orange and red lines. I have to stand both days on
both trips and when its humid the air doesn't cool in the car so well
with all the bodies radiating heat, so I sweat...and sweat...
So that's a minus, but its economical to take the metro and frankly the
walking is good exercise since I sit so much for this job.
I started trying to eat better this week too. I figure may as well roll
a lot of change together all at once so I don't notice overly much.
I've had 6 tablespoons of yogurt in the mornings (all I can stand after
being awake only 40mins), 2 medium/small pbj sandwiches for lunch, and
tomatoes with a side of salad and bread for dinner. All of which means
no money flowing out for food costs besides that spent at the grocery.
Its not easy though, my stomach was growling on tuesday and I've felt
hungry more than once in the morning at work but after lunch I'm usually
I've also had a cold or a sinus infection or something this week. I
have no idea where it came from but must have been before I started
riding the metro and going to work, assuming a week incubation.
I also have an annoying tender spot on the bottom edge of my upper lip
on the left side. I'm terrified its a wart or herpes or some crazy shit
like that but more sensibly I think its just an irritated scraped area
from using a plastic spoon on thursday night when I had ice cream at
staceys in falls church. It is admittedly less tender/annoying today
and hasn't had any 'eruption' morphology.
I'm already feeling less bloated from eating drastically less than I
usually would. I noticed my profile in a store window today too and my
stomach bulge wasn't quite as bulgy. I don't have any illusions I've
lost weight but just having less in the gut is nice.
I've also been thinking about romantic interests lately which is more
than a little confusing. I'm really not sure what exactly my desire
is. I think its just a general desire for more social interaction and
that's spilling over into sexual desire. I thinking dating before
growing the social or friend circle is definitely putting the cart
before the horse though. So common sense will prevail I think.
Which doesn't make me think less about massaging and kissing beautiful
bald mens heads (I've been finding guys who would be a phrenologists
dream particularly alluring lately) or wanting to throw down with some
hot tattooed + pierced punks, but ya know, I deal. My inner animal is
definitely awake and roaring though now. I can't imagine it will be
long before I have to find some outlet for the beast.
So that's my week. Some new stuff, some different stuff, and a lot of
regular boring stuff.
