My extreme extroversion feels like the death of me at work the last couple weeks. Things are slowing down mightily at work as students finish up classes and head home for the summer, so I return home every day completely drained of energy because my little back office with no windows in the basement of the UC at CMU is keeping me from any social interaction and driving me nuts!
I need some interaction, so how about you comment some answers to these questions?
What is some music I NEED to listen to today?
At the moment, I'm jamming a stream of the new Manchester Orchestra album (out yesterday) as well as Arcade Fire's performance at Coachella. These two bands are reminding me how much I need to create music, but I need some energy and inspiration first. I want to start a band so badly, but have no idea where I will live at the end of the summer, so it's virtually pointless to try at the moment. That will be one of my first endeavors in my new (or old) city!
What are some cool (cheap) things I should do while I'm unemployed for a while?
Tennis, painting, playing music, disc golf, cooking, and reading are already on the list. Give me some other ideas! I'll be poor, so the cheaper the better. I'm about to be unemployed for a yet-to-be-determined amount of time, so I could use some simple or elaborate ideas to utilize in Pittsburgh.
What makes you impatient?
My attention deficit is not designed for long periods of idleness, so my patience is being challenged by my lack of tasks in front of me as well as my job and future uncertainty on many levels. I know that I need to put my need for patience in God's hands or I'll continue down a slippery slope of insanity due to lack of stimuli.
