Well, I want to talk about myself. I think it’s unusual for me to raise up an issue such like this. It’s about laugh at my office. Laugh? What laugh? Yeah, after moving into a new office building plus new environment, I have some kind of feeling a rigidness, an empty space which needs to be filled. Initially, I did not realize what happened to me exactly why I am so having felt a bored anyway when I am doing my work at my office. I can not figure out until a new awareness came into my mind.
What is that about? That is a laugh. Yes, I ran out a sense of laugh, a big laugh actually. Since I knew that all these persons is not easily humor lover, everything has become too hard to express my real fun of something. I love to say something in funny gesture, giving an amusing comment, or just comical word abruptly. And when those funny things not welcomed, I knew that my old-new friends were not my ‘favorite’ friends.
I mean, everything tends to raise a laugh or smile but when you talk desperately funny, but all around just stay put or not smile, I think you should go alone. I met these people like that everyday. Sadly, these people were my ex-Kembangan friends. Not all of them though. All of my friends’ faces looked so heavy with a pile of work they should do every day, every time. Some noises, screaming of unsatisfied task coloring my office. Everything so quick-tempered, not relax, so tense, let alone peace.
An uptight condition is contrasted with the past when our office still lived in Kembangan. Every person has always provided some jokes and made me relax to do all of my work. Some funny story came from my guys who always kept visiting our room control master at lunch time especially. They kept talking about an usual story, daily small talk, some groovy thing I could enjoy listening. It was so relaxing.
What is the effect of that? My feeling greatly happy all day. I think stress out will be smoothly loosed. Compared with the situation now, I could see a broad difference between. In the past, I met somebody -mostly male employee- continued talk some jokes, they did everything with funny actions. I could say their sense of humor was absolutely good. Now, I meet mostly female employee with their workload! It’s not surprising is it?
So, what should I do to make my facial line rather smile-looked? I did not know until now. I could not see what the answer for that. I tried to take everything in peace, but it took some time. Another way was to ridicule all the things which is potentially to be ridiculed. It sounds corny, though.
Shortly, I missed my laughter, I missed laugh out loud. And I missed them. I need the people who could make me amused when my office work so highly boring, why?
Because laughter is the best medicine, right?
