i can't get motivated to do any work.

it's odd how the less work you have to do, the less you actually get done. it's like i never want to actually catch up after all; but i think it's been one of those days for everyone here. no-one else looks particularly enthralled; meanwhile my highlight of the day has been discovering glitter from xmas eve still all over random objects. gold dust swept across an a4 envelope, shimmering from in between the letters on wendy's keyboard. who says i never leave my mark?

there are christmas photos up on the board from our lunch on christmas eve. i'm in them with my red elf suit; well it was fun while it lasted. christmas seems so long ago now. noel and i were talking about public holidays in 2005, but i suppose that's getting ahead of ourselves just a little too far.

a bunch of us started talking government/money/society in the lunchroom this afternoon; it was a riveting conversation, but it leaves one feeling a little more cynical about the state of our world. we talk about wanting to make a difference, but the inevitable question of "how?" lingers on everyone's lips. there must be ways, it's just a matter of finding them and letting our small voices be heard. letting our small voices be joined by others. it gives me much to think about. there's so much wrong in this world that it's hard not to just want to give up and stop fighting because where do you even start; but there's also so much beauty and hope to be found that it's a reminder of why we don't give up. things can be done, a difference can be made; i know it can. silly idealist that i am, but it's better than just accepting the injustices as they are.

i have a feeling i'll be talking much of this over coming months. perhaps i'll make a filter or something though; i know it's not what everyone wants to read on a regular basis.

i caught marita throwing christmas cards into the bin at hometime yesterday. "those can be recycled !" i cried, snatching them from her. it prompted an email to go out to the office this morning announcing that any unwanted cards were not to be discared in the waste, but to be given to me to take to recycling [via Planet Ark] instead. it's only a small thing, but everything helps, right? i think i've been complacent long enough; i have so much to learn this year.

Hehe I do that too at work, when people are emptying the wastebins, I grab all the plastic/tin/cardboard/aluminium out and put it in our recycling bins, my workmates roll their eyes, but it's such a small thing to do, and it makes just that little difference.

i am sorry to be cynical but i can do nothing but laugh when people say they wish peace in the world for 2004
i prefer laughing or else i would die crying
