Had Tuesday off coz I felt like crap, working tomorrow to make up for it. Saturday's are my sleep in day dammit. >_< But it'll get me a full week's pay.

Writing is next to non-existant, but I'm reading plenty. Got half an hour on the bus every morning and afternoon, plus another half waiting for a changeover (because waiting is better than missing the next bus) and the better part of half an hour at lunch. I haven't read this much since I was dodging homework in high school. The only problem is that it's skewing my writing brain, which isn't helping me get back to writing. Every time I write it ends up sounding like whatever I've been reading at the time and completely fails to hold my interest.

Also, I think I might have to give up tv if I want to get enough sleep. Record stuff and watch it on the weekends. I really need more sleep. Or concealer.

And my Warhammer 40k parcel hasn't arrived yet. Got the paintbrushes, but no paints or models. Mind you, no weekend left to spend with them, so I guess it works out.

Ugh

Today was not a good day. Running on an hour's sleep and I have the horrible feeling I won't be able to sleep properly tonight either.

Peak hour traffic plus multiple accidents made my second bus (of a three bus trip) over an hour late so I missed the transfer I needed. When I tried to phone to say I was going to be an hour late, there was no answer, despite multiple tries. I decided - in my sleep exhausted wisdom - to go home and try again tomorrow. Which for several hours I was willing to call a reasonable decision in the circumstances, but of course my anxiety has caught up with me. I'll call again as soon as I get up tomorrow and see if I can get another chance. (What I keep telling myself is that I had to make a decision, I made it, and if it was the wrong then I'll just have to live with that. The anxiety is not impressed.)

Long day

Not enough sleep, chaotic and long day, sushi noms, no more energy, bed time now.

I had the best intentions for this afternoon. Come home, do some dishes and a bit of cleaning, then sit down to finish the short fic and get my day's goal for King's Darkness. I'm not entirely sure what happened instead, except that the internet was involved. And a delivery of groceries.

And I've got a repair guy coming tomorrow to hopefully deal with the ceiling in my bathroom. So before bed tonight I need to clear stuff out of the way so he can get in and out without running into anything (and considering my computer and tv are on one side of that pathway? this is important to me)

Or I could rearrange to make more of a pathway... *tries to resist the bad idea* ...Maybe if I just move the bed and wardrobe so I can move the couch further back...

I'll let you know how it goes

There was something I wanted to post about, I'm sure of it. All I can think of now though is "long weekend wheeee". Oh, and I wrote, but not much, because it's been a long day and I'm tired and blech.

And there was something this morning I thought of about the oddities of my fears of heights. Mostly that I'm fine with throwing myself out of a plane, but not flying in one, and tall buildings are okay, but not standing on chairs. I might have had a point in mind at the time beyond "my fears are weird".

Other than that, WoW continues to be addictive and Black Sheep is hilarious.

Ow day

Today can mostly be summed up with "OMG MY FEET HURT ;_____;" because of blisters. Really, really painful blisters.

I'm also just generally exhausted so... that's all the update you get.

Oh, and I wrote a whole sentence of my story.

For the record, I don't enjoy group tasks.

*toddles off to hide the bodies*
tayastorm: (calm)
Spent the weekend doing chores and being social, so I'm once again without writing. And generally displeased with the situation. I need to be writing more, but I also need to be thinking about writing. I was doing well for a while, but then I fell out of the habit.

The second Novel in a Season challenge starts on Tuesday, so I'll need to be writing three pages a day for that. I don't want it to be my only writing though, which means working on drabble and longfic every day too.

In theory I should be completing 2 drabble and longfics every three weeks, which should be a cinch for the drabble, and at least doable for the longfic. As usual though it's a case of less talk, more do.

We'll see.

Tonight I'm going to a party at my brother's place. Staying overnight coz it's easier than public transport at that hour. (Although depending on how I'm feeling and if anyone's sober enough to drop me at the train station....)

Part of me is trying to focus on other things, but most of me is going "OMG SOCIALISING HEEEEEEEEEEEELP ;___;"

Not that I'm not social or anything. I just have a limit. Usually I can handle about 5 days a week around people... Kind of like studying full time.

Yeah.

Ugh

That is all.

Today has been miserable. I spent a lot of it wondering if I'd fit in my fridge. (After I took the food out obviously)

But I made icons.

Avoidance

Okay, so I should have spent the day writing. But I slept in and woke up exhausted anyway, and then I had a friend tell me she wanted nothing to do with me anymore - which is cool, I'm more surprised it took this long, it just struck a nerve and threw me totally off course. After that I went offline and tidied a bit, got my groceries and successfully didn't eat the entire cake I got myself as a treat.

Now it's almost time for me to have a nap, if I can sleep with this heat and headache, so if I write it'll be later this evening.

Except I'm not hoping for much, because the other thing I'll be doing this evening is avoiding all my online socialising. The thing with my friend - should I even still call her that? - has got me thinking, things I've thought before but always let myself get distracted from. This time I don't want to be distracted, I want to find answers, and that means solitude.
