I changed my facebook password because someone else had accessed it. I am sure it was as a result of injudicious use of public computers. Shame.
Then I forgot what my new password was.
Had the reset password thing sent to my email, but I haven't bothered to figure out how the new gmail interface works so I kept going back and checking and checking and checking... until I saw that there were tabs and that one of them was "Social" which I had avoided because I wasn't feeling particularly social. Ha.
Decided to clean up my computer by throwing out unused old crappy applications so logged in as administrator; but this means that I don't have access to my photos for this post.
Remembered to bring my phone today, but not to charge it.
Discovered that the two different parts of my job are on two different schedules; one of them is on break from December 18-January 14. The other one only gets one week off. Good thing I found that out before I made any elaborate plans to vacation in Tahiti during the interim.
All my thoughts are short and choppy today. Not in a bad way, just in a short and choppy way. The poetry part of my brain is taking a rest. Or the prose part is. Whatever, they are not speaking to one another.
I can't remember if I am right or left brain dominant. Ah. I knew I was really majorly one or the other but I forgot. Here is what a completely invalid totally non-scientific online quiz gave me (after I scored 71% right brain)
When it comes to who calls the shots in your head, it appears as though your right hemisphere takes charge. You're intuitive and spontaneous, preferring to take a much more "hands-on" approach to life. There are times when you may be a little scatter-brained and disorganized, but it's not like you do it on purpose - with so much out there to explore and so many things to do, it can sometimes be hard to keep track of everything!
Not one to care or worry about the little details, it's the "big picture" in life that matters most to you. When it comes to following rules or making decisions, you don't really have to go through the whole thinking process; you prefer to rely on your gut rather than logic. This may not make sense to some people, but you've probably always been the type of person who's willing to go out on a limb, basing your decisions and actions on nothing but a hunch. You are often drawn to the abstract and mysterious, and enjoy figuring things out on your own. Being a visually-oriented person, you are likely much more adept at expressing yourself through actions or designs rather than words.
It sounds like they are describing my zodiac sign. Is that how you say it? Or is it zodiacal? Zodiacity? However, it also rings fairly true as those around me can attest. But it turns out it is probably as valid as a horoscope according to anyone who knows anything about how our brains actually work.
I have often described myself as a force for chaos in the life of my left-brained spouse. Hmm... gives a different meaning to my "other half." Perhaps the term should be "other hemisphere."
Wow I got off on weird tangents in today's post.
Grateful Crap: I can count the days until winter break on two hands
Took meds in the morning (still have not gotten more allergy meds. should do so.)
Ran up 3.5 flights of stairs (and then really really wished that I remembered that my inhaler was in my purse)
Talked to younger son about how to manage anxiety and worries. He was surprised to hear that I too am a worrier. Really?
