Hanging out tonight really helped my mood considerably. I made it a point to try to sing in the shower, prior to the party, and that helped some. Normally, singing in the shower is a surefire way for me to actually improve my mood. But it wasn’t until I got to Handlebar and started chatting with folks that my stress finally dissipated.
There’s still a lot of work to be done, but I’m a bit more refocused on the important things – going out, talking with friends, and unplugging from the box in general. I’m a lot more relaxed about things at the end of the day, than I was at the end of the work day.
