Mood 24/7

I was invited through Wellsphere to test out Mood 24/7. It is a new program through Johns Hopkins University that will track your daily moods.  It will send a text message to a number you designate and you reply with a number 1 (low) through 10 (high) with a time you want your text message to come.

I decided to participate to track my moods in addition to this blog, which is a great mood tracker. I can look back at almost any date in the last two years and find high and low points.

Tonight, right at 8 pm, I got my text. I was contemplating the number to put. Today was a crumby day at work. I should get my resume ducks in order. I have to change the way I have been working and not care so much about my job. The passion me and my boss have for wanting a better work environment and system is not getting us anywhere at work and it is just going to mean that our passion is being mistaking for pushiness, cynicism and Boston rudeness.

I have been coughing nonstop. I stopped tonight to get some cough medicine, a thermometer and some Ricola cherry lozenges. I get a bit whiny and contemplative when sick and tonight is no different. I don’t feel particularly bad just aching from all the coughing. Lots of Nyquil before bed tonight.

I gave it a Mood 5 sick. I was honest. I feel sort of blah. The green eyed monster was out and about. I was jealous of the people I see all happy and together. I was not feeling my best. Everything just propelled me downward. At least the weekend is almost here.

Tomorrow will be a better day. I get to see friends I have not seen in a while on Sunday and I’ll possibly be going to an Irish festival on Saturday.
