It’s Thursday! It’s time to share some doors! What did I capture this week? Let’s find out.
Tis the definition of a first world problem. But I shall whine briefly about it anyway.
It’s a privilege when it comes down to it. Not everyone has this happen to them every day and, though a bit of an inconvenience, it’s a gift.
It happens at work, a job I went to school to learn the skills for, after going to university (because that’s, like, required for anything). It happens every day, but the time changes slightly. It happens to be true that I can get up and walk around for a few minutes until it ends. Or I could wear my sunglasses inside (but I’m not Bono, so … no).
I know it’s coming, except on glorious cloudy days, when I don’t even have to think about it. But on the sunny ones, as soon as I see a glimmer out of the corner of my eye and know it’s starting, I mentally steel myself so I can survive until it ends.
I’m sure this won’t be as big an issue in the spring, when the leaves provide natural shade (literally and figuratively). Until then, every day around 4:45, I duck behind my 20-inch monitor (which could lead to napping as my head is dangerously close to the desk), or I stand and/or leave my desk, turning into Gizmo, saying, “Bright light! Bright light!”
(I know I live on the bright side, but this is just a bit too literal for me.)
