So, I figured out what quiets down my incessant mind.
Apparently something simple as being in nature, and just listening/observing the animals/bugs/trees/everything quiets my mind as nothing else has. It's almost like a meditation in and of itself. I got around about an hour or two outside today...and first I felt rather bad about not having anything to do out there, but then I settled into watching some squirrels play around in the trees, and looking at this strange bug (I think it was a soldier fly) crawl around on my toes and clean itself.
I do feel much better, though I am worried about tomorrow.
Tomorrow I'm on a quest with my SO to find a different job. The jobs that both him and I have are giving paltry hours during the summer, so we're hoping to find something a bit more stable all year round. I know I should be sleeping in preparation of this, but I just got up from a nap, and I may take another one before we go. It was rather refreshing to go to bed around 10PM for a change, even if it WAS just for a nap.
I also have to play pool for my team tomorrow (well, maybe). I hope that I win, some days I'm really good at pool, and other days it seems as though I couldn't hit a ball straight if my life depended on it. I will like the non-work social interaction though, so I'm kind of looking forward to it.
