I realised this week that everyone hates work no matter what it is. We’d all rather be sitting about naked eating chocolate and watching Game of Thrones. Also, I wanted to draw an astronaut.
I forgot the name of the effect, but basically however crappy or awesome a situation is, you’re emotional state will eventually return to neutral. It’s basically why we can sit in a chair in the sky and surf Wikipedia to learn the wonders of the world; ancient kings would give their kingdoms for this. Yet ultimately we’re still pissed off about being stuck on a plane.
Chocolate! Game of Thrones! The good stuff.
