The key to enjoying your time here on earth is to learn how to properly waste it.

Scenario: Just got to the office, I enter my room... turn on laptop, check and answer office e-mails, read personal e-mails, read the papers, go to Twitter, go to Facebook, Level up in Mafia Wars, log-out from Facebook and Gmail, work -- make calls/ answer e-mails/ remind people of their deliverables, back to Facebook and check renewed energy on Mafia Wars, read about Formula 1 updates, go back to Twitter, play a little Diner Dash, work --- almost same as above, eat lunch, walk around the office, return to room, check mail, fix schedule, lay-out server launch plans, talk to people who ask for help with their own work, play a little Diner Dash again, look for MS news online, check DC publicity...

It could be quite a busy day depending on how I spend it but no matter how much work I have to do (more or less), or how much surfing / online stuff I can do, I hate to admit it but I'm still utterly BORED.

I guess the only thing harder than being swamped with work to the point of giving up is actually fighting boredom. If I were home I would've forced myself to sleep till I figure out what to do with my time. But the scene here is different -- There's a lot on my to do list and I'm doing what I have to do but the sad thing about that is I'm not preoccupied. I. AM. BORED. and boredom makes people do crazy things. My life is a ROUTINE!!!


Currently listening to: Real World, Matchbox 20

I wonder what its like to be the rainmaker
I wonder what its like to know that I made the rain
I'd store it in boxes with little yellow tags on everyone
And you can come and see them when I'm...done, when I'm done

I wonder what its like to be a superhero
I wonder where I'd go if I could fly around downtown
From some other planet, I get this funky high on yellow sun
Boy I bet my friends will all be...stunned, they're stunned

Straight up, what did you hope to learn about here?
If I were someone else, would this all fall apart?
Strange, where were you when we started this gig?
I wish the real world would just stop hassling me

I wonder what its like to be the head honcho
I wonder what I'd do if they all did just what I said
I'd shout out an order, "I think were out of this man, get me some"
Boy don't make me wanna change my...tone, my tone

Please don't change, please don't break
The only thing that seems to work at all is you
Please don't change at all
From me, to you, and you to me
