Often I find I come home from work on Wednesdays feeling more energetic than usual. Wednesdays I work in an office I like – the people are awesome and I have more clients. More clients means more time engaging with others and feeling useful, and less time spent aimlessly surfing the internets and reading memes and otherwise wasting time; activities that I notice end up with me feeling drained and kinda bad about myself.
Today I had a ton of work, and four clients. The first client went great (relationships and communication), the second client alright (an initial assessment, which are generally hopeful and positive), and the last horribly (a very disruptive, wilful, disobedient, cheeky child). I came home utterly exhausted. I forgot my journal and my e-cig and drove halfway home before realising my parking brake was on. I haven’t done that ever before!
It’s making me uneasy about working a 46-50 hour week… and this is only the first week!
So I had a glass of wine. I know this isn’t a healthy response and idc. Now I’m going to play the Neverwinter MMO (I’m a trickster rogue and all disgruntled that I can’t be a druid).
So, so glad I have tomorrow morning off.
