Monday, Monday

Things have been feeling a bit like Groundhog's day for me lately.  Same issues, same problems, same worries each day.  Lather, rinse, repeat. 

Right now, I just kind of desperately needed a break from them and am borrowing an easy-peasy blog post from my friend MCW

Favorite Movie?  Too TOO many to list.  Those that know me know of my deep love for Say Anything.  I think I also need to note Breakfast Club.  My sentimental self would like to add Meet Me in St Louis.  And my inner film school geek needs me to also list Dr. Strangelove and High Noon -- two movies I wrote countless papers on yet still enjoy watching every single time. 

Wearing?  Work clothes....very blah

Dinner?  Last night for dinner I had an incredibly good cheeseburger from the diner near the apartment....that then had me feeling sick about an hour later and for the rest of the night. 

Feet?  VERY MUCH in need of a pedicure. 

Hands?  I started prepping to give myself a home mani (and pedi) last Friday night and never got to the actual polish part.  Maybe one night this week....

Worries?  Too many to list right now.  Wishing some of them could go away so I could feel a little more even-keeled.

Wondering?  How it's all going to work out. 

Biggest Pet Peeve?  I am going to go off of MCW's line of thinking and say people who overshare on FB.  I'd feel more comfortable if you declared your undying love for your S.O. in a touching face-to-face moment, not announcing it to FB.  I'm sorry you aren't feeling well, but reading about every doctor visit and prognosis is a little much for everyday consumption.  And yes, I have started to remove folks from my FB feed because it gets under my skin so much. 

Work?  I don't even know how to describe it lately.  Lonely.  Confusing.  Sometimes depressing. 

Looking Forward to?  Hopefully getting to see L sometime this week after having to unfortunately cancel our plans this past weekend. 

Why?  Because I haven't seen her in forever.  For-ever-ever!

True Confession? I wish I didn't feel so isolated at work.  I left my last job mainly because I wanted to have face-to-face colleagues and feel like a real part of a team.  To maybe have a work friend or two to grab coffee with or step out for lunch once in awhile.  But I often feel like I was more a part of a true "team" at my last job, when all my colleagues worked in other offices.  Kinda sad, huh?
