It seems tensions are high lately. I’m seeing several people (including myself) who seem to not be their normal friendly selves. :( Stress sucks.
KDE is a great community, so it’s easier to notice when things aren’t completely perfect. I’m not good at these social things though, so… how can we make it better?
A few ideas:
-if you’re stressed out, save that email as a draft and read it again in the morning.
-think twice before speaking on irc, too. (I’ve been kinda grouchy there lately… sorry guys.)
-remember that the person you’re talking to might be stressed out too, and think about how their feelings might be affecting how they interpret what you say.
-slow down. haste leads to mistakes which leads to taking more time than if you’d gone slower. :P
-remind yourself and others of all the awesome things that are going well :)
-if you’re *not* crazy busy, see if you can reduce someone’s workload – I hear CampKDE needs volunteers :)
…easier said than done for a lot of those, of course; I’m trying to remind myself of them and keep my head as deadlines rush in…
also: *hugs!!* :) KDE is awesome, you guys rock, and I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone (or as many as can make it) again at CampKDE.
