My legs ache from sitting at the computer ALL day. I am writing cover letters as I apply for jobs in the Bay Area for next year. Too tired to “be creative,” I look around for inspiration. Here is my worldview, the objects that surround me, right here and right now.
MacBook Pro with a cute purple cover. Which only makes me think of the new iPad 2 and it’s smart folding, magnetic cover. I want one. I want one now.
Empty Coffee Cup: A brown rim about one centimeter from the top is the only evidence of a caffeination break.
Half-filled Glass of Lemon Water: Notice that it is half filled not half empty. I would prefer it be filled with fresh pressed apple juice, but I am reducing calories. I think I drank twice as much coffee than water today. I can feel the hint of a dehydration headache. Drinking water….now.
Two cell phones: One belongs to me, the other my husband.
Husband: He leans over a chair to type on his computer at the table. He has prepared a small meal, and is waiting for me to finish. He seems engaged in something – email, twitter, facebook? We are tech junkies.
Bananagrams: leftover from a visit with Mom and Dad.
Three Journals: Personal journal for intimate thoughts and emotions. To-d0 journal is filled with lists and goals. Binder/journal is where I keep my teacher plans and bigger/complex thoughts.
Book on Creativity: Assigned for professional development. Interesting but dense reading.
Stationery, headphones, drying laundry, pens, colored pencils, post-its, tape, chapstick.
Must. Eat. Hungry. Tired.
