At work today, there was a Halloween potluck. Pretty much everyone in my department participated, bringing food, drinks, and whatnot. When the clock hit 12:00pm, the entire office stampeded towards the large conference room loaded with employee-made foodstuffs. I, however, did not participate. I humbly clocked out, walked to my car, and drove to Micky D’s (McDonald’s).
I ordered my personal favorite: 20 piece chicken nuggets.
When I returned, my co-workers asked me why I didn’t get food from the potluck. I simply told the truth and answered, “I didn’t want to.”
Now, am I being anti-social? Maybe.
Is there anything wrong with that? Perhaps, by society’s standards.
Do I care? Absolutely not.
In fact, I find that with deviation, there is creation. When in solitude, I find that I’m much more productive and proactive in capturing those elusive moments of creativity.
Right now, I’m sitting in my room, cats beside me, thoughts bouncing around my mind. My roomates are at a school Halloween party. While they invited me to go, I turned them down so that I could write and brainstorm. I plan to work on a second blog, as well as work on recording some music for a cover. Maybe I’ll even get in touch with my friend Serene for some vocal work when it’s done?
There’s numerous things to do, but for now I’ll relax. It’s Friday after all.
So far so good for a productive weekend!
