With all the bad news coming from London and Iraq (and every other country it seems), it sometimes makes what I work on and do seem extremely trivial...I feel a little guilty I guess, guilty and confused.
I'm going to go out on a bit of a limb here, but here goes...Ladies and gents...I believe I am suffering from male PMS. Of course, I have NO idea what it's like to have PMS but it's the only way to describe how I've been feeling lately. It just feels like the last 4 or 5 days I seem to get emotional about work and even the news I read about or see on television, even more than usual. I don't feel sick or anything but the littlest thing seems to really set me off. Anyway, I don't want to sound like a whiney little punk. I just felt the need to share. I'm as confused as the rest of you. Actually, I'm regretting even writing about but I don't delete what I write (except to correct grammar/spelling) so I'm stuck with it.
If anyone is interested, I came across a short and not very developed article on mitigation work on criminal/death penalty cases. The story is from the San Jose Mercury News and can be found HERE. It's interesting although I think it they could have gone a lot further with it than they did....they really just scratched the surface. That and maybe I didn't read it closely enough but I couldn't figure out if they were talking about a Private Investigator or a Mitigation Specialist.
Ok, I gotta go. I just dropped my morning banana onto the floor and I feel the need to cry.
