You lookin' at ma eye?!
Mega quick sketch of my eye.
Today was a wee bit manic* at work, but instead of stressing I merely found myself retreating inwardly, like an introverted animal - maybe a snail or hermit crab. Something with a protective shell fashioned out of cynicism and bitter experience. Essentially I think I am gradually becoming immune to things that used to make me very angry or upset.** Is this a good thing or is it bad? Time will tell.
*we had the arsonists, the kid who threw a (stolen) bottle of hair gel at me last week for confiscating its lighter, and the only young person to ever get a lifetime ban. This happened before I started, but I gather was due to said child being an all-round evil delinquent. Anyhoo they were there, about 20 other kids were there, the polis were there.. It was a hoot.
