i’m not planning on freelancing any more. have had enough of sitting at my desk staring at a computer to last me a lifetime. still have my part-time job at the institute—in fact, i’m now up to 75% there (not that i’m working at the moment). so i’ve been considering changing my office into a hobby room. or maybe a life room. somewhere to put my sewing machine, my keyboard, my art supplies … all the stuff that is currently hidden under the sofa/on top of the wardrobe, or that’s just chaotically all over the place.
if i were going to do that properly, of course, i’d have to clear my bookshelves and cabinets of work-related stuff i don’t intend to be using again. and what if i change my mind? but what if my resolve crumbles and i end up back in the unhealthy place i was before???
tabula rasa or half-hearted re-functioning?? my recurrent problem is that i’m never quite sure where i want to be going. guess i’m not the only one there. but, tbh, i’d only need to re-clear the desk if there were ever a job that i really wanted to do. and there are a couple i’m going to have to do, because they’ve been paid for already.
am back in hospital for a week or so starting tomorrow, so it’s not as if any immediate action is needed. but de-working this room would be a good project for when i get out. hmmm. sth to think about. 7 months ago
