How to Deal with the Work Blues....

So this week at work has been one I would call rough. Apparently you can get punished for being honest. Who knew? Well because it's been so rough I've been trying to fix my mood when I get home. Most of the time I have just been sleeping as soon as I get home because it's been so physically and emotionally draining, but there have been a few other "remedies" that I have found to alleviate my down in the dumps.

1. 80's music. Give me just about any 80's song and I will feel so much happier. I have my playlist going on my computer, my Zune (yes get over it, I love it) and my phone. A little Hall & Oates, MJ, Wang Chung, Depeche Mode, Oingo Boingo and a few others have a tendency to lift your spirits almost instantly.

2. Moonlight. I love this show. It has Alex O'loughlin (Hawaii 5-0) as a vampire. It's really sexy and this show is a cult classic that was cut tragically short by CBS. Anyway the 16 episodes that made up the series always bring a smile to my face.

3. Harry Potter. This is magic in real life. I get wisked away to a wonderful wizard world and I can just forget about all the crap I've been dealing with. It's like casting my own spell on myself.

Right now I'm listening to Paul Simon's Slip Slidin' Away (might actually be from the 70's not entirely sure). How do you not feel good?

Just changed to Toto's Africa. Another feel good song. Jordan you'll appreciate.

P.S. Raisin Bran with fresh Blackberries is surprisingly delicious.


  1. Good. Because Toto rules and I'm sorry but if anyone says they're sad after hearing that song they're full of shit because it is amazing. That being said, 80's music will put you in an epic mood. Never watched Moonlight, I have an aversion to Vampires but I do enjoy Alex O'loughlin. I hate shows cut too short. Hello, Firefly? And yes, whenever I'm feeling shitty, Harry Potter can fix that. I want to be a wizard.

  2. Haha I love vampires, just not sparkling vampires. I fell to that hype, but have since recovered. And I've never seen Firefly for just that reason. I don't want to be screwed with only 13ish episodes. I don't like when there's no closure.


I loves me some comments!
