I had to ask myself, “What really should I be taking from this? Is there a lesson to be learned here?” While I have been waiting all morning for the storms to stop and the internet to come back, I did just that; reflected.
Did you know computers can get Alzheimer's? Apparently so, mine has been complaining about its memory for the last month. I gave it some post-it notes and told it to cope.
Did you know coffee stains on your wall can be considered modern art? It can if while trying to descend the stairs you are carrying a cup of coffee, a laptop, 2 phones, a roll of marked-up drawings and dodging 3 dogs racing for the one lone pillow in the basement.
I have forgotten how to schedule time properly. Working 14 hours a day you have to re-schedule something, I know this now. The dusty aliens are homesteaders and I need more forks.
I was taught not drink and run a PC. After 2 or 3 happy hour lovelies all the buttons look fun to push, which explains why my roof ended up in the heavens. Moral: data can be corrupted to drink with you, be careful.
Never, when you have been laid off, clean your office out. In your anger you will throw away all reminders of the position that was taken from you; thus no reference material.
If, like me, you get tunnel vision while working take note. White dots floating on the screen is not the energy saver kicking in. You must eat to chase away the dot fairies. Eat, before you are taken by them.
On a serious note, I learned or at least became painfully aware that no amount of money can replace what we share with our fellow humans and furry friends.
