A budget, analyzed

I’m afraid I’ve been overthinking my blog posts lately, and I seem to be stuck. So here’s a Dilbert cartoon my coworker Amanda introduced me to the other day that summarizes our job quite well.

I laughed just now thinking about how odd it is that I’m a budget analyst by profession. Even now it doesn’t make sense. It’s quite hilarious, actually.


Chicken soup and Harry Potter

I woke up sick this morning, tossing and turning, not wanting to get out of bed and ready for work. I called in sick, and it’s been a bit of a blur ever since.

I cancelled all of my plans and simply stayed in. At one point I went downstairs to make myself some chicken soup. And just a bit ago, I found myself singing about butter as I whipped up a sandwich.

I’m tellin’ you, it was a blur.

And all throughout the day I had this nagging thought: “Cecilia you’re not doing what you said you would.” It was calling me out for not having blogged all day nor last night.

And now that I’m actually doing it, another nagging thought: “Cecilia, why did you wait until now? You had all day.”

And to it I say: “Cool it, will ya? I got it done. Now, I’m going to go watch Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, just because I can.
