How I feel about this day, this week, and this month.

Anxiety

  • I could hardly sleep last night due to my anxiety about the work I’m doing right now.
  • In the past 48+ hours I just did work that most companies have a team of people to do.
  • My clients are upset because it didn’t go as smooth as possible
  • It was out of my control
  • I am only one person who tried to multitask 6 things at one time, to make things easier for them.
  • They asked for the change.
  • Technically this is not my job, but I’m the only one qualified to do it.
  • There are larger sites with much larger teams who have longer downtime than what my clients sites had. (Hello Tumblr… Twitter anyone)
  • They probably don’t even understand what I was doing they will only see the end result
  • EVERYTHING IS URGENT
  • Oh and I’m probably not going to see any extra money come my way even through I just saved them thousands of dollars of work if this was done by an agency.
  • After everything that has gone on this month, this has done nothing for my nerves.
  • This is why I’m anxious, and haven’t slept well in 2 days.
  • Honestly I’m no longer finding joy in my career.
  • I don’t know what to do about it.
  • Bullet points help me keep my thoughts concise and it helps calms me.
  • Feeling under appreciated in life and career sucks.
  • Depression sucks.
  • I need coffee.

It’s 11pm

I know for most this isn’t significant. 

But I have to say that I just finished working.

Last night I stopped at midnight.

This is my work life.

I need to rethink some things.

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Tale of Three Brothers - Death

The Personification of Death

I was watching Hogfather yesterday and I was intrigued by a lot of what was said in that movie and how humans need to create fantasy in order to feel human. What got me was the personification of Death, a largely amusing character within the Discworld series, but I loved the portrayal in this movie. 

The thing that is most interesting that people tend to forget is that nothing loves life more than death. So I kind wanted to see other personifications of death in other movies/tv shows. There are a lot more but these are the ones I personally found intriguing on how they portrayed Death.

The Personifications of Death

  1.  Terry Pratchett’s Discworld - Death (from the miniseries Hogfather)
  2. DC Comics - Death
  3. Marvel Comics - Death
  4. Lady Death (not really sure she counts but I’ll include her)
  5. Bill and Ted’s Bogus Adventure - Death
  6. Supernatural - Death/Horseman Death
  7. Dead Like Me - Grim Reapers
  8. A Christmas Carol - Ghost of Christmas Future
  9. American Horror Story: Asylum - Shachath the Angel of Death 
  10. Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Tale of Three Brothers - Death
