I think I am much happier when I can be productive. When my efforts do not go towards the progress of something, I feel frustrated and tense. I think maintenance of things is important, but the feeling of creative production is so fullfilling to me. This is a double-edged sword. I need to remember always to place myself in a position where the perception of my value is closely coupled to the creative production of something. If I am asked to project manage too much or test something too much, I make mistakes and generally get unruly.
Both Jared and Matt have been coughing and now Ethan is coughing too. Katie and I have been OK, but I imagine those little germ factories (kids) are going to infest me with their viruses. Yesterday, I thought Matt and Jared both looked bigger.
There is something else on my mind, but I am not sure what it is. Little gnome in my mind, itching.
