I’m Not Angry
But I’ve never been above it.
You see through me, don’t you?
So the computer beat the humans on Jeopardy. Yikes. It gave me the strangest chills to watch; a program “thinking”. It truly is amazing, though. And Ken Jennings is hilarious. “I for one welcome our new computer overlords.” Awesome.
I feel… off.
I don’t know. I woke up yesterday and today feeling stressed and critical of my life and relationships. It’s probably, in part, due to the spread-too-thin sense I’ve been getting this whole month. There just isn’t enough time to give to all the things that deserve it. Overall it puts me in an unhappy state of mind and I start thinking down paths perhaps better left alone. I can’t tell. Maybe it serves me well. More likely it gives me undue worry. But it’s surely a pattern in my life.
On the upside, things have been going not too bad at work since Phil left at the end of last month. I was sort of expecting it to be much harder without him, but we’re surviving. I went to a meeting with Kim on Tuesday and it went fairly well. Overall, I think reporting to Kim has given me a bit more of the big picture concerning the company in the last few weeks, and I like that.
I haven’t seen my friends in ages. At least it feels like it. I guess it hasn’t been that long, but I hope this weekend I can catch up with lots of them; I think that’s what I need.
