Yesterday, I sat through an attendance-optional, hour-long presentation about my workplace’s After Hours Service Manual even though I don’t (and never will) work after hours, simply because the presenter was really attractive.
It got really boring in places but I just focused more on his beautiful face and it got better.

Lunch situation: I’ve discovered a cool grass verge that I’ve been having lunch at for fresh air and to get away from people. I do have to walk up a stone wall to get there and then the grass is kinda…hard? But it’s nice. I’m still to return to having awkward lunch in the lunchroom.
Times I get an urge to internet surf: Little less than last week. It’s hard to go from being on internet all day when I was unemployed to only after work. I need to get data on my phone.
Do you ever want to talk to someone but
1) You feel like you’re bothering them or coming off clingy
2) You don’t have anything to say, you just want to talk to them
3) You don’t know how to hold a conversation to save your life
It may just be because I’m delirious from studying, but this video absolutely killed me. It’s too perfect.
