Today is driving me crazy. I’m having a super-sensitive tactile day. I’ve only been awake for two hours, but already I want to rip all of my clothes off [while screaming as loudly as possible, of course] and curl up with a soft blanket and rock back and forth. Unfortunately, I am at work. While I’m sure everyone would be too stunned to stop me today, I probably would not be welcome back tomorrow.
It’s really hard to cope on days like this. I mean, you know it’s all in your head. But you can’t just “snap out of it”. I’m part of an online community/support group for people with SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder) and their recommendation is always to eliminate the stressors and take the necessary steps to make yourself feel better. That is not an option unless I go home from work. So I just have to deal with it. Grr. [I would like to take a moment to apologize to anyone I have been or will be a bitch to today.]
I was going to post about something else entirely, but then today happened and my train derailed. I realize I haven’t been posting as much lately. It’s a blend of being too busy with school and losing interest in LiveJournal.
I’ve started writing a zombie story, set in Chicago. Well, actually, it started out as a series of blog posts that I have converted into a story. I think I want to go back to the online blog format. It was more fun. And more interactive. I don’t know. Maybe I’m just procrastinating on the story. I really liked the idea of a girl blogging throughout a zombapocalypse. I think it makes it a little more real. I could even try to play with photoshop and get some pictures in it! But if it were a book I could fine tune it and play with timing to make certain events more impactful. Also, her blogging begs the question of who exactly is keeping the internet going. Would she still have access? What do you think — book or blog?
On two unrelated notes, I made a new Pandora station comprised of classical and modern composers. I always look at the “why was this song selected?” info and this reason made me smile: “…because it features a large orchestra, tonal harmony, major key tonality, a fast and bright tempo and a joyful feeling.” Who doesn’t enjoy a joyful feeling every now and then?
Secondly, I took a Facebook quiz today titled something like “Which Country Are You?” My result: Hawaii. Well done, quizmaker. Well done.
