Sometimes, work is no fun !

I've been working very hard in the past months. Things have been good.. lack of time and people but a good mood overall.

In the past few days however things have taken a wrong turn. Back is the tensions, of the bad kind.
It feels a bit like being in a sinking ship.. people still working hard the job done, but not really looking forward to continue like this.

Usually the sour mood starts from the morning.. and then one stays pissed for the whole day. In such a state, it's hard to sit and relax, focus and solve problems in front of a monitor.
The tension is tangible and so is the noise. Also the office temperature tends to reach 29 C ! For some reason, Japanese offices in winter tend to get rather warm (In this case I have my AC on, but some leave theirs off and the office gets hot anyway).

I like to believe that I'm a bit of a positive force in the current team, but if that's true and I'm not as positive anymore, then we're in for a slump.

All in all, I just want to work in harmony with people that are competent and respectful.. a reasonable request one would think...
