everything dissonance  
yesterday, it rained the entire day. determined not to let the rain ruin my plans, i jogged in the evening drizzle 'til it began pouring again. today, it is still raining. one-on-one academic meetings and during the holidays stress me out. i am cold and unhappy. and have a lot of work to do. i am cold and unhappy.
 
 
Mood: hungry

from an entry on wikipedia (our best friend!) on "cognitive dissonance":

After a lacking evaluation of various blenders, Luke purchases one. Luke's decision is consonant for the preferred qualities of his blender and the disadvantages of the rejected blenders. However, it is dissonant with the defects of his new blender and preferred qualities of the rejects.

Unknown defects: If Luke's dissonance is amplified often enough, e.g. by new, authoritative reviews of his blender, reviews which rate his blender poorly, or, if his experience using his friends' blenders has Luke finding his machine lacking, Luke begins to be overwhelmed by the dissonance related to the blender, at which point he starts to second-guess his choice.


alternatively, go to the entry on "buyer's remorse":
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buyer%27s_remorse
the link explains dissonance in the context of marketing (or in my case) much much better. i hope i will be out of it in the next *counts* umm few days. :)
