The days are getting longer, but the to-do list grows longer still. As the year continues to fly on by, I have to keep reminding myself to take it one step at a time, and not be paralysed by the multitude of things, both voluntary and obligatory, that needs doing. Really, that is all I can do. Of course, my powers of procrastination are as strong as ever.
How are you?
Today...today I feel good, and thought I would drop in, see how everybody is doing, and offer a few tidbits as to what's going on in this bubble of reality.
While it was over a month ago now, I finally, FINALLY, gave myself a real break. Bar the occasional day of work I did very little for two weeks - and I relished in it. I read, I gamed, I actually watched some TV shows that I've been meaning to catch up on. I tinkered a little with my projects. I withdrew from my uni subject, realising that 1. mentally I needed a break and 2. I need to change direction in my studies if I'm going to actually complete my degree. My sleeping habits went completely haywire, but that was a small price to pay for the relaxing and resetting of my frayed mind and body. I feel more like myself again; while there is still much to do, and there is a lot I need to think about when it comes to my future direction, I don't feel so much like curling up into a ball and rocking back and forth. It is a good feeling.
I am continuing with my art courses, this term selecting a course that is designed to and is really pushing my abilities. I am enjoying myself, despite the workload totally kicking my arse. My main personal writing project is also making progress at a nice pace, and the ideas for other standalone pieces are starting to form and take shape - I just need to make a little time to cultivate them. Progress is slow...but it's progress all the same. I am thinking of scanning and posting my homework to show you what exactly I've been doing - contrary to what my gallery presents, I have actually been creating things.
Work is busy as always and keeps throwing interesting curve balls to alter my perspective; keeping up with life things is, as always, a challenge. But things are looking up - and it will be interesting to see how the end of 2015 pans out. I have to say though, these past two years has certainly seen a massive upheaval of my life, and as things continue to shift I am all the more certain that if I go with my gut, things will be okay.
I hope you are all well...tell me what's been happening with you! I always enjoy hearing of adventures and life things amongst your own bubbles of reality.
