Let There Be Light or Learning to Love the Time Change

The time shift has been hell on me (does anyone like to wake up at 4am?) but needing to put on sunglasses this morning was joyous.

I indulged today by lazing around in bed. Instead of coming in two hours early, I decided to come to work “on time.”

Working the hours I am paid for- I know, what a concept!

I have been so used to going to work- in the dark then coming home- in the dark.

When did I turn into a mole-person?

It’s not like I don’t know this happens every year. The hours at work have been so crazy that what little daylight I see is through a closed window over the wall of my cubicle.

Call me Dilbert.

But I guess I am feeling it more because there is so much going on right now and much of it is bad. It is stupid to be working such crazy hours and I keep telling myself it will get better but it has only gotten worse. I also have the added stress of dealing with people who are incredibly entitled and can’t take any responsibility for what happens in their life so I am being used as the scapegoat.

Did reason-sucking aliens land on earth and lay the minds of seemingly reasonable individuals to waste?

Let me rephrase, these people are more than willing to take all the credit for successes and shove all the blame for the failure onto my plate.

Yes, I am the architect of your doom- the destroyer of lives.

Thank you very much. Please come again.

Apologies- a slight digression on my part.

At the end of the day, I have bigger fish to fry and much more important things to deal with than errant finger pointing.

I will bide my time (as the days continue to get shorter and shorter), enjoy any sunshine that comes our way, try to shut away the ridiculousness that is out of my hands and not let the longer nights get to me because the winter solstice is only a few weeks away.

Hopefully this ridiculousness will turn around when it flips again and the days start to get a little longer….
