Year's almost finished, and with that comes an even slower OPTEMPO at the new command than ever before. I've been here for almost three months now, and I've managed to rid myself of the involuntary cringing waiting for the hourly bells to strike.

The one thing that I haven't managed to get rid of is the urgent need to have things done right now.

Which doesn't jive with the fact that things around here seem to happen when they will, and at their own pace. Even the people themselves have no real sense of urgency, and it doesn't seem like that's a problem, so I've gotta find some way to lower my own perceived sense of emergency, or I'm gonna burn myself out over nothing at all.

Dafuq, brain.
