Another weekend gone

Everytime we receive a new project, there is a mixture of annoyance and excitement followed almost immediately with frustration and exhaustion. That is the life right? Hmm, maybe not.

At the end of every project I think everyone is ready to let go of all that stress and just enjoy the rest of their weekend. It is definitely difficult to push aside everything that just happened, it is difficult to ignore all the work that still lies ahead, and mostly it is difficult to get back into the swing of things. I think this weekend was a great example of that.

I finished my 4 week long project presentation on Thursday and though I did seem to have a good amount of sleep under my belt, I still felt exhausted. Friday approached and instead of looking forward to all the possibilities my weekend held, I was just looking forward to crashing in bed. I thoroughly enjoyed not having to care about work and not having to think about what was the next thing on the agenda. But now it's Monday and I have to switch the school button back on. Ugh. UGH you hear?

But we must go forward and we must continue on with our responsibilities. It's never easy but it's necessary. Life never stops and no matter how much we dread it, we cannot let go.

Yays for Holidays!

So the holiday season is quickly approaching us. And I must say, I AM SO READY! I love the holidays, I love the idea of families coming together to spend warm cozy nights chatting by the dinner table, while the youngins stuff their faces with food.

Nowadays a lot of us have lost that family spirit and I am quite saddened by it. I see people sitting at restaurants staring at their food while the little kids stare at their Nintendo DS screens. Boo. We need to grab those little devices and keep them away from the tables. We need to put an attempt to making conversations instead of silently sending signals while staring at our food. We need to put away petty arguments and try to enjoy a meal with one another.

I also love the aspect of giving during the holidays, but sometimes that can become tainted by the status of our current economic devastation. People become more focused on the money part of gift giving. Sometimes it isn't even about the money, many people have given up to just defaulting with a gift card to their family members. Since our family has decided to do Secret Santa gifts, our Christmases have consisted of each of us exchanging gift cards. Boo.

I say, let's do something more meaningful. If not with your cousins and coworkers, at least with your best friends and immediate family members. Not that spending money really equates to a great Christmas gesture, but let's try to make more of an effort. I say, let's just spend time to do something meaningful, spend time to say something loving, or just spend time with loved ones. The best thing you can give to those you love is...love.

Yay for the holidays coming, I can't wait!

One of those weeks

You know how sometimes you feel like you are a bit off? Well, that is how I have been feeling this week..just a bit - off. It is frustrating to figure out the tiny insignificant details of a large idea. It is frustrating to sit on terribly uncomfortable chairs in the studio. It is annoying to be annoyed by annoying people. =)

Oh yes, and if this wasn't frustrating enough already, I tried to open the door and had that stupid heavy doorknob fall onto my foot. Hello, bruise.

Other than that, I'm fine. =D
