One distinct (and not work-related) problem I noticed last night though was certain thoughts pertaining to my current surroundings. Same as before, obviously, but I noticed one of the bigger reasons they've been bothering me so much recently is how I compare myself to other people - Josh, for example. Unfortunately, it came to the point last night where I laid down for a bit around midnight (because I was genuinely tired - not because I just didn't want to do anything else), and somewhere between that point and falling asleep for a few minutes, saw the whole matter as something to be avoided, same as I like to avoid other things that I think will negatively affect me. Is that the right way to go about it? Probably not, but I don't know what else to do just yet, and these thoughts are pervasive to the extent that if they do come up while I'm away next week, they'll probably ruin my mood for a good several hours, if not more. Aside from that though, I went out on the front porch for a bit last night to more directly experience the storm (mostly because it had become uncomfortably humid in the house), which was nice for that time, as was waking up for a few minutes while it was raining later on in the morning. Much loud thunder and rain falling, but it's all gone now. Well, almost. Conditions out there seem indicative that another storm is coming, for which I would really like to be here. And it had also better storm at least once in Toronto next week as well. There's nothing quite like seeing dark, ominous clouds roll in, and the excitement that comes from that. I think the rain today may have been the cause of an odd dream I had though. Adam was swimming around in a pool somewhere, bringing up random glass bottles. I offered to help, and he cautioned me that the water was extremely cold, which I told myself would be fine, but suddenly I was off in a completely different location, and had to make my way home again before I could help him. I don't recall ever making it back to the pool, but it was interesting nonetheless. The feeling of not knowing what mysteries were to be found at the bottom, because everybody else had stayed away due to the water's temperature... That seems to be a recurring theme in my dreams - mystery. I wonder why?
All of this disjointed nonsense aside though, I should go get to work on the rest of the dishes now, so I don't have to choose between those and going to get groceries later. At least there won't be as many as before~
