VericuesterWork less? Waste less time? Who knows.

Having struggled with academic and activist/emotional burnout the past year, I want to make sure I don’t face a similar experience again by surrounding myself with social support, potentially seeking therapy and learning how to manage my time/balance my life better. 3 years ago

biggest aim of 2007. so far so good 6 years ago


ToaryOne way to not burn out...

...is to do something new every day (or so).

Today I will go to a reading. This is new. Not just the content of the reading. Me going to a reading itself is new.

I will take the bike. This is not new. But I will drive my bike a route I’ve never driven before. A new route. I’ve heard of this route yesterday and I will try it out for this occasion.

With my luck doing two new things on a single day will be so exhausting that I burn out more than ever ;-)

Or it will be so much fun that I can’t stop smiling until the upcoming weekend is over :-)

I think I’ll be heading for the smile… 7 years ago


dragonfly is somewhere dreamingletting everyone know

I am still alive and kicking. Well, wriggling more or less since kicking would actually hurt ::giggles::

As an update:

  • my husband knocked up his girlfriend and is looking to me as his escape
  • my condo fees went up more than my income affords
  • my back has been hurting like it has a vendetta against my body so sitting at the computer has been a literal pain
  • i miss everyone
  • my daughters are preteens officially in attitude (oh joy!)
  • still attempting to get proper medical assistance
  • car is now a debt that is more than it is worth
  • the ex-friend has made paying off my other car her last priority (she is supposed to be buying it)
  • three male friends I have talked to think I am ‘the one’ and won’t allow me to remain a friend but want more and are irritably insistent about it. arseholes.

but
having lamented and moaned I have had unbelievable favor

  • i have a probono-divorce lawyer appointment Thursday
  • funds have been pouring in from unexpected sources to cover the condo fee increase
  • i am still creative and it is growing exponentially
  • my kids are wonderful and healthy despite hitting puberty and acting like impish creatures
  • i have had anonymous benefactors footing my doctor bills
  • i have a friend who affirms and supports me

yet
I am still tired.

Forgive me that I have not kept up with 43. Chances are I lost subscribers but it is understandable. I do hope everyone is well.

Ciao for now and not sure for how long,

Jeez. When I close my eyelids, I see PDF letters dancing and floating all around. I let you picture when I have my (mad, blood-injected, scary) eyes open.
And my co-writer is not doing very well with the screenplay, so I’ll have to handle it.
I just have to hang on till the 15th of may. The 15th of may, aka The Deadline of All the Deadlines. My god ! The 15th of may is like what ? tomorrow ? in an hour ? and so damn bloody many things to be done !!!!
