I have been having a bad time at work. Because I haven’t been being myself or being honest. I have not been giggles and Wang Chung. I was being the person I thought everyone would rather me be, and I was making myself miserable.
Yesterday, I found out that even though you make situations really bad, it can all be fixed. And sometimes that person you think hates everything about you, doesn’t really… just some where your words and actions got lost in translation and made things worse than they ever had to be. And sometimes you can’t choose how important certain people are to you, and although it can really suck. It can also be really awesome sometimes…
Anyways, last week and yesterday until lunch I really just wanted to be alone… Because 6 personalities in 1,000 S.F. (that is including a bathroom and storage) is very hard to deal with. Especially when you are fighting with 1/5 of the people you work with.
I contemplated working in a more secluded spot… so logically I thought working in the Fortress of Solitude could really work out for me:
But alas… we couldn’t figure out how to link up the phone with all those large ice crystals. And, I don’t think I would have survived very well in solitary confinement. and none of my coworkers agreed with this doodle.
Here are the reactions of my coworkers:
Dab: “That’s such a freaking lie! I just don’t see that working out for you”
Professional: “I think it wouldn’t be solitary for very long. Actually you are the only person who could probably unsolitude the fortress of solitude”
Amber just knowingly giggled.
I guess I should probably invest in a batcave… especially if I can be there with Joseph Gordon Levitt.
Today was a good day. I hope you had a good one too.
Okay so as expressed in several locations on this site Joseph Gordon Levitt is pretty cool.
Here is a quick recap of why he’s so cool.
1. He was in “10 things I hate about You.” This is where we found out that he burns, pines and perishes for Bianca Stratford. As well as taking time to learn French does not insue that the girl of your dreams will fall in love with you.
2. Everyone watched “3rd Rock From the Sun.” Where he also was with Larissa Olyenik
3. 500 Days of Summer looks awesome. He plays a greeting card designer who desires to be an architect.
4. He doesn’t go by Joe or Joey, thank you btw.
5. He can do this:
There aren’t many people who can air guitar so well.
The first time I saw this trailer. I initially thought, “Summer is evil”. How can she do this to poor Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He’s the small lad from “10 things I hate about you” who “Pined and Perished” for Bianca Stratford.
And then I realized I can totally relate to Summer. Things do happen and then you should cut your losses and go on. We are young, and I am not a marm. If things suck, staying will only make things worse. And I know I may regret saying this someday, but screw it. That is how I feel right now.
And a story about love seems better than a love story.
Also I love how they filmed in LA and didn’t make it a joke. I actually do love Los Angeles and once you get off of Hollywood Blvd. we are real people. We have bikes, and dogs, and 78% of us even have souls. Just like the rest of the world. We may not have the most structurally lush skyline like most major cities, but we have our funky good times.
And we have awesome food, music, and vintage clothing stores.
Also this made me laugh because it sounds like Jimmy and I talking… this is what we talk about. Just in case you ever wondered.
