It was a rather long day at work. I'm beginning to get into my casework, and boy do I feel like a small fish in a very large ocean. It's amazing what all of those stress hormones do to your body and the exhaustion that they cause, not to mention what happen when you don't get enough sleep. I think I took something like a 45 minute nap after I got back home, and I still feel exhausted. Hopefully the rest of this week will not be like that, otherwise....well, that could prove to be difficult. Some interesting news from around the world; A Russian, Alexander Dolmatov, killed himself because the Netherlands denied him asylum from Russia. Apparently he had worked for the Russian government as a top experimental scientist who feared for his life, so when he learned that he would be unable to remain in the Netherlands, he wrote his mother a note telling her that he would not be coming back, and then he hung himself. According to rights activists, the Russian political climate continues to get worse, so it is unfortunate that the West is not accepting of Russian dissidents. So hopefully as things begin to get more as they were during the era of the Soviet Union, and as dissidents come out, the West will be more inclined to help those people out. Also with Syria, it seems like the Syrian Rebels are beginning to form a government, and France is pushing to lift the arms weapons embargo on the rebels. So perhaps Bashar al Assad will be closer to his end, as over 70,000 people have died, and over 1 million have been displaced; something that the entire would should be ashamed of, that this civil war has gone on this long. Tomorrow The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey comes out on DVD, and then next week is when G.I. JOE: Retaliation is released in theatres, of which I have been looking forward to since it was supposed to come out last year. Hopefully the 3-D was worth the wait.
