It is the little things that make us happy and it is the little things that can turn us upside-down. The up-and-down, back-and-forth, the give-and-take that is currently going on in the office is just an added burden I do not need now and so I'm trying to ignore it whenever and however possible. I have always needed a little bit of distraction, background noise when I study. I am trying to view all of this nonsense as being nothing more than background noise to my life, as every minute for the next ten days will be spent study setting.
