Work is stressful. Everyone is in freak out mode, but I feel pretty calm. People keep asking me how much coffee I’ve had with a mixture of respect, concern, and jealousy. I’ve been pretty effective and energized latley. I also feel great compared to this time last year when years of pressure in my personal life had taken a toll and shit just fell apart.
I think it’s annoying people. I suppose there is something to be said for a bit of blue collar grit in the corporate world. Sure, I feel a little stressed and sad (there are layoffs and my own job is technically at risk, but I am not too worried). Really, I am fine though. Its pretty surreal to see how people behave under pressure.
