Today was a "Monday" - in every sense of the word.
And yes, I realize that me "having a Monday" on a Monday is not all that strange.
My new motto is "just keep swimming."
Just like Dory in Finding Nemo.
I am going to just keep swimming.
Today was yet another totally strange day at The Job.
I was thinking of going for some sort of record today at the office. I was going to see how long I could go without talking to anyone.
Now this 'quest for silence' wasn't because I was being rude.
Nope, it's just that people at my office seem to exist in their own little 'bubbles' and it's rare when there is more than that compulsory 'good morning' going on.
My 'day of silence' was going swimmingly until someone called me at 3 p.m. to ask me if I knew where something was located on the hard drive. (Because you know, after six weeks on the job I should know where a file I've never used/heard of would be located, right? Yeah. Right.)
I e-mailed Kevin today to "complain" about The Job and his response was "Well, you're not going to be there forever and at least now you know how the LOST people felt on the island."
That made me laugh.
But I suppose I am lost on a not-so-deserted-but-very-quiet island in the middle of nowhere, trying to find my way 'home'. Thankfully there are no rogue polar bears or cranky Smoke Monsters roaming the halls. Yet.
And I often feel like Desmond, trapped in the hatch - but instead of spending my days typing in not-so-random numbers, I am typing in not-so-meaningful words that other people are rewriting without my input. But I digress.
In my 'flash sideways' scenes I am working at job that I love and doing something that makes me happy and I am no longer dreading the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. three days a week.
I am hoping that my 'flash sideways' soon becomes the reality.
Until then...I will just keep swimming.
