Sometimes I am so grouchy, whiny and grumbly. This is different from being stressed, or being upset. The grumbly-ness is almost playful. Almost.
Usually it is because I want to do something fun or relaxing, and have work to do instead. Or I want to be go somewhere, and my car doesn’t work. Basically… when I don’t get my way, but it’s not a big enough deal to really be upset. It’s a small tantrum.
These days, Grumblufagus comes out when all that is graduate school demands my attention, and I simply refuse to acknowledge it. Instead, I like a movie, popcorn and a blanket on my couch. A fun and patient boyfriend doesn’t hurt either.
