I'm kinda spinny-spinny today. Took a little extra melatonin last night in an effort to get more than 6 hours of broken sleep. This morning I feel drugged. I'm beginning to think that I honestly do best with a solid 6 hours than if I sleep longer than that. I look forward to how alert, inspired and creative I am from the hours of 5 am - 11 am. Today I suspect I'll be plodding through the day spending more time attempting to get inspired and motivated than being inspired and motivated.
Getting some of the crap out of my brain the other day really helped me put the frustration out of my way. It left me far better equipped to relax and enjoy my day. It's a challenge to balance the need to bite at shitty behavior, steel myself against my buttons being pushed, and still not call people out in public. But letting it fester inside in an effort to spare confrontation just makes me a snarly beast. There is a balance to be found, and while many times I can walk away, sometimes I simply can't.
I got my hair trimmed and re-streaked yesterday and I'm quite pleased with it. It's shiny jet black with shots of blood red and burgundy throughout. A little more sleek than bold. I rather like the change. If my eyes didn't look zombie-like, I'd take a picture and make a new icon.
In the time it took me to type this, I finished a cup of coffee, and I'm starting to feel more alert. This day is going to be very influenced by music.
Today feels like the kind of day to start something big and important. I see it's designated as a "No Spells" day, so that means project work. Maybe I will tie up some loose ends, call some things "completed."
