I want to say it’s been a long day, but it really hasn’t. It’s been mostly a very pleasant day. I’m just
tired drained. I’m anxious about work, and hoping it’ll be done soon. And I ache, and I don’t know why I’m still hungy. I made a decent dinner, even if it ended up taking nearly two hours from start to finish, and I was getting upset at trying to juggle everything.
I just want a day to stay home and sleep. Instead I’m going to turn in early enough for a full night’s rest, show up cheerful and enthusiastic about the job tomorrow, and quietly count down the days until I’m done. I believe this is called being a grown-up, or something, and is closely tied to finding work and making people not curse your presence.
(Meantime, the friend I’m writing a story with has been busy lately (which is fine!) and so have I, but from the time we’ve had to talk I can’t help but feel that while being busy she’s getting more actually done.)
Despite coordinating schedules, I am actually too worn to pay attention to American Horror Story or Walking Dead, so we’re catching up on Supernatural. It’s nice to sit back and watch characters deal with a monster of the week, and I like the openly fake psychic who is pleasant and reasonable about her job. It’s still clever rather than creepy, though, and I can’t remember when it last managed to be creepy–
(That said, the meta-commentary about brothers working together made me laugh.)
I suppose it’s hard to sustain tension, which is an essential element of creepy, when you know characters are either going to survive (Winchesters, Bobby) or else can’t be expected to be there for longer than an episode (everyone else). Should keep that in mind when writing, I suppose.
I’m rambling, I know. I think I’m about due to turn in.
