Personal daze

Selfdivider: "There was a weird phase in my life when I didn’t do anything right and I didn’t want things to go right."

From Erasing:

May I be the first to welcome you to Room 3b. You will find the working conditions primitive, the hours antisocial, the amenities non-existent and the catering beneath contempt. On top of that the people are for the most part very very boring, with interests either so generalized as to mimic wholesale ignorance or so particular as to be lunatic obsessions. Their level of conversation would pass without comment in the lavatory of a mixed comprehensive and the lavatories, by the way, are few and far between. —Tom Stoppard, Dirty Linen

[Footnote: I just moved into...3B!]
