404 - not social
Grrr.  I forgot that I agreed to go help monitor the records for our study patient at a local hospital this afternoon.  It's a "learning experience", even though I don't want to go that direction as a career path, so I need to go.  But that means that all the stuff I thought I was going to get done today?  Not going to happen.  And also I have an hour-long meeting that I have to sit through beforehand, so another big chunk of the day is gone.  I've already got 11 messages sitting in my email that need to be answered, but...they're just going to have to wait till tonight.

I just hate all the sitting around with not enough going on to occupy my mind.  It's not that I'm ADHD.  I just don't tolerate enforced mental inactivity very well, and that's what most of the rest of the day will be: sitting, watching/listening to other people, and thinking about all the other tasks I should be doing instead.
 
(Also, this is the second day in a row that I feel kind of hung over for no reason.  I hope this isn't the start of some kind of nasty slow virus.  OK, will stop grumbling now.)

I feel your pain.. only not so much because of "ohh! busy day of forced mental activity", but because I just woke up not too long ago. It's 5:50,and I have been out of the bed for one hour. At this rate, next week I will not wake up until 10pm. Obviously, some sort of sleep schedule overhaul needs to be undertaken ASAP. Now I have got to cram like 10 hours of productive working into about 6 hours of actual time. Step one: making pointless comments on as many LJs as humanly possible!

An excellent first step, if I may say so myself.

I am actually going to attempt something new. I'm going to try working 10 to 7. It means I will have to spend time alone at the end of the day, and I'm a bit nervous about that even though the doors are sturdy and locked. But I am NOT A MORNING PERSON, and since May I seem to be incapable of getting to sleep before 2 or 3 in the morning no matter what I do. So now, I could sleep till 9 am if necessary.

(Plus it means I'll have time at the end of the day to work with NO ONE NAGGING ME.)

I have just completed step two: sitting in the parking lot of my sister's job for an hour and a half waiting for her to get off of work. Please do not get to close to me, as I am so hot with productivity that you may catch on fire!

to work with NO ONE NAGGING ME
This has always been my dream.

Sorry you're feeling grumpy.

Thanks. I'm just trying not to grump at work because of some things that are going on...which means my only choices are to hold it in and get really frustrated, or grump online.
