    I thought that one activity would shut everybody up, but they just screamed and yelled...

    Funny how much quieter it was in HR.

    The same. Seems I’m in a “close when you chew” workplace.

    Before I finished college and got a paying job, there were huge distractions in the dorms that often prevented us from hunkering down and studying. Now many years finished with college, one wonders how to focus on the more important things while filtering out the distractions. Extraneous environment noise is the biggest culprit in my instance (neighbors on their phones, TVs or stereos blaring in adjoining apartments, dogs barking, street noise, children yelling while at play...).

    It's vitally important that people can focus on their work, yet note exactly what happens when one turns on the TV, or allows other distractions in...it's near impossible to get any work done! Even though you may be passively listening, what you take in will infiltrate your psyche and mess with your head...therefore, real work requires focus...save your rest and play time for when you're off the time clock and can spend your downtime with family or friends...or use your rest time for your hobbies, which is essentially occupational therapy that uses your hands and helps you focus working with your hands instead of using as much of what's in your head...

    I start my new job Monday. Except, Monday is a Holiday for my new employer. So, my first day of work is a Paid Holiday. How lucky can a guy get?

    I had to go into work today. It was 13F when I left and crossed 20F by mid-morning, when ... the fire alarm went off in the building. That 45min was fun. At least it's sunny out today.
