Waking up on the wrong side of the bed

Have you guys ever experienced waking up one day feeling irritated, and every single little thing seemed to get on your nerves? How does one cope with it?

Today is one of the rare days where I wake up feeling intense frustration. I attribute it to a number of sources:


Slow-moving freelance gigs

Usually the projects I am engaged in have a sense of urgency, or rather a tight timeline attached to them. With these tight timelines I am able to properly schedule my work and my other stuff. This is not the case during recession period, projects are becoming slow moving, clients take a longer time to get back and projects timeline are stretched over a longer than neccessary purchase amoxil online period.

Most of the time I understand that the clients are also busy with their schedules, so I never bother really much. However, there is this one client which is really getting on my nerves. She is the project co-ordinator for her company’s website. I am tasked to create and complete the website. It is really a waiting game for this gig, the co-ordinator does not even bother to continue with the project until her boss questioned cheapest cialis generic her about it. During that time she will hastenly come up with the content, send to me and demand that I complete it within a day for her. As the content is written without much thought, there are numerous changes and re-works, restructuring.

Now she does not even reply to my emails and smses inquiring about updates on the project status. And when I call her I will get more and more requests for more time on her side. This is really getting into me, sighz.


Internet connection latency / Phone connection

I am a big fan of games, or rather a gamer at heart. Recently I bought Street Fighter IV for PS3. It is a great game, really. But due to the network latency of our dear FAT GREEN PIPE, online gaming of SFIV for me becomes a very frustrating event. I especially LOATHE laggy connections or drop frames. Guess this is the signal for me to jump buy propecia brand ship to the RED UMBRELLA. I certainly do not want to get frustrated every single time I want to play the game. Games are supposedly to be enjoyed.

My mobile connection is a contant 1-2 bar in my house. Many of my friends and clients have highlighted that my connection is not audible most of the time. Sometimes it gets so bad that my clients have to repeat the same sentence two to three times before I get what they say. Like my internet connection, my contract with the GREEN plan is still on-going… sigh.


Environmental stress

Hmm, today is not really a good day to be at home. The contractor came in today and starts his repertoire kamagra discount of hammering and power drilling. Coupled with the constant Generic Levitra Super Active+ Online Pharmacy | Buy Levitra Super Active+ | Cheap Levitra Super Active+ | Order Generic Levitra Super Active+ Online without Prescription nagging from my buy generic cytotec mum and a hot day, guess it is not hard for one to feel jumpy living in this kind of surroundings.

  8. I know exactly what you mean. It happens to me occassionaly. What i do to combat irritability is practice patience and always try to find something else to work on when something doesnt pan out. Also try taking some vitamin D and Omega 3 in the mornings. i found that it really helps to keep me in a good mood. Or you can take a walk in a sunny and bright place before you go about starting your work day. Fresh air helps too.
