I have absolutely nothing to report, apart from the fact that I am bone tired tonight, and I don’t want to stare at a screen or think.
But I told myself I’d use a computer for non-work purposes this week, so here it is.
I told myself I needed to write consistently for a month before I rewarded myself with a new desk.
Well, I broke that and bought myself a new desk anyway, after nearly 2 weeks of almost, sorta there, vague consistency.
I bravely drove to Ikea by myself on whim, came home, put it together, walked away because I was hangry, started a very long week at work, and now it’s been basically 2 weeks and I haven’t been back since.
Talking about that Monolith again…
I’ve got to figure out how to balance Big Things at the job I get Paid To Do with the Hey You Still Need to Thrive things I do not get Paid to do (at least not yet). Because work will likely always be like this, because I got promoted last year and I have responsibilities now. And I’ve gotta stop thinking one day it will magically stop and I’ll go back to the salad days.
We’ll get there.
Still taking baby steps toward getting back to myself.
I read a lot last week. I’m currently reading Hamnet which is a historical drama lightly based on Shakespeare’s life, and Hamlet. It’s not a genre I’ve really delved much into (apart from Phillipa Gregory’s Tudor Dynasty books because I love me some Tudors) and when I can get stuck into it, I’m really enjoying it. So far everyone is dying from bubonic plague and there’s a witchy kind of mom whose background story is pretty cool.
I got back into working out, and even ran on my lunch break today (speaking of which, I took 3 lunch breaks last week – yes!).
I ate breakfast yesterday and today.
I’m working very hard to not go into work early and not stay late/work from home.
I was social on the weekend.
I managed to dress like a human being to work on more than one occasion.
Maybe this weekend I can face my desk.
