Back at Work

So, today marks my fourth day back in the office.

My fourth day of getting up at the rather ungodly hour of 5:30 am, and trying to be in bed early enough at night to make that time of the morning slightly less painful.  My fourth day of hoping and praying that my body adapts to this crazy new schedule sometime soon.

As jobs go, this one is just okay.

It has me thinking a lot about atmosphere in offices again.  About people, and how the people in a place shape and contribute to the atmosphere in a place. 

This isn't the happiest place.

But, for now, it pays well.  It provides some security and certainty for the next several months as I wait to hear the latest news on school.

And I'm thankful for that.

So, I get up at ungodly hours, and live contrary to my nature by going to bed nice and early, and I choose to be thankful.

And I happily anticipate Saturday morning, on which I don't plan to emerge from bed until at least 11:00 am!
