129. Communication is key

Friday, August 12, 2005

So yesterday I got nothing done. I didn't write an article or anything fiction related at all. I spent a good part of the day reading and relaxing in front of the television. When I don't feel well physically my mood emotionally seems to follow suit. So yesterday was a good day to just stick to myself for a good bit and just be. No have to's or need to's, just sitting there and doing nothing. Nothing like a good cheesy movie to brighten up your mood either. Around midnight, I was flipping through my cable stations and found the cheesiest movie I've seen in years, called The Thunderbirds, about a family of adventurers that are sort of superheroish with no superhero powers It took little to no brain power to watch, and watching it improved my mood for some reason.

Today I got back to work and wrote small review on Bon Jovi's latest video and single just out now. You can find the link to that on my sidebar under recent articles if you're interested. Last night's quiet did allow me to ponder some more about the Shivers contest, and I think I have an idea. I'll try starting on it later and see if I can get something together before the deadline. If I don't, then I'm sure I can find another place for it. My idea sort of involves ghosts and reincarnation ,but that's all I'm saying right now.

The past few weeks I've been diving into my work head first, and I've had to make some sacrifices. I've had to cut back on doing a lot of things I normally would spend my days doing online. I've not been around to talk to people as much, and I made some changes in that department as well. I didn't like doing it because if I could have all the time in the world to talk to everyone I normally talk to and get everything I need done, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

With the Internet, it is hard to know when someone does something whether or not they did it in a malicious or non-malicious tone, so I've learned communication is always key. You can't judge tone by just reading the words on the screen. If you think something is up, it is so easy to drop an email or whatever method of communication you use to find out what is up. I had something like this happen just in the last few days, and I wish instead of assuming something the person could have just come to me. It could have saved a bit of hurt on both sides. We can't go back and change it, but we can move forward with the knowledge that not everything appears to be how you think it is. A little communication can go a long way.

Have a great evening everyone.

Aw, sorry for the miscommunication problems and I hope you can get it straightened out. That's easy to happen on the internet, it's true.
