Back In The Game

Even though I seemed happier last week I wasn't all that happy. I was still putting things off, such as checking my emails. So I had over forty unread emails. I was way behind in Wordpress blogs I was following and such. Anyway, hopefully I am actually feeling slightly better, and actually meaning that. Though my attempts to alter my sleeping pattern have failed miserably. Every time I wake up I fall straight back to sleep and wake up an hour or so later. I'm experimenting with having two alarms. I just really don't like sleeping at night. I don't know if I would actually go as far as to say I'm nocturnal, but I still think the days I slept from midday to the evening contained the best sleep schedule I'd ever had. I get really tired in the afternoon, and then it just starts to go away if I stay awake long enough. Anyway, I've talked enough nonsense for now. It's Monday, so I'm going to post a good old fashioned round up.

Tuesday I talked about my experiences with Xbox Live, and the lack of foul mouthed youngsters I've so far come across. I also had a little moan about how my Netflix selection is severely crippled because I had the fortune of being born outside the US. It's kind of sad that even the British programs they have are incomplete. Then again they did just add the first series of the new Doctor Who, so maybe I'll get the Matt Smith episodes one day.

Wednesday I celebrated my first bloggerversary or however the Hel you're supposed to spell it, and entered my second year of blogging. Though either people didn't read the whole thing, and were just confused, and thought I was entering my third year of blogging. We'll be lucky to see that one folks.

Thursday I finally finished the whole A-Z thing. Originally I had planned to not take a day off, and do all 26 posts in a row leading to my birthday. I finished about a month after my birthday. I fucking rule. In order to cheat I just talked a little bit, for it was a podcast, about the letter z itself, and how people pronounce it differently. I then went on to read some poems for Nellievaughn, complete with taking 12 minutes to read Panthea by Oscar Wilde.

Friday was a post written entirely on my phone. It wasn't as annoying as you'd imagine to write a near 400 word post on a phone. It was about how David Cameron is a hypocritical cunt by calling out Jimmy Carr on his tax dodging, while being a colossal wanker and seemingly not caring when corporations cheat us out of BILLIONS in tax money. If you want to see me full of rage, you should read that post.

Saturday There wasn't too much to see. I had a headache Friday and so didn't do any writing, which meant there was no chapter of Immortal Space ready. I begged forgiveness and posted a Bryan Adams song. That is all.

On Sunday though I did finally post a new chapter in the story. It's worth looking at just to see me cry at how much I failed because I didn't do any research before starting and now there's been a huge shift. We're leaving the solar system baby. Well, soon. Also Fang you were correct that it was kind of short. Normally the chapters I post are about 1 A4 piece of paper long, and that fell short of that. You have a good eye.

Well that's that for the round up. Hopefully this week I'll make more progress with my reading, writing, and sleeping. This seems like one of those situations where I can only get one out of three, and must choose carefully.

  1. I still think you should do more reading on your podcasts, and I really likes when you and Bersercules would team up.
    So now that you are keeping up with e-mails, does this mean you are a little happier?

  3. I did notice that you have been catching up with your emails. Thank you for all the lovely comments today. I kept sneaking a look while I was at work.

    We all have good and bad weeks. I am so happy you still kept blogging despite not feeling up to par

  4. You wouldn't think it, but blogging actually takes up a LOT of time and effort! And I always see your name in the comments of so many blogs. I wouldn't be able to do that! You really are dedicated!

  5. The new chapter is a shorty but a goodie, and let me just say as a writer that research is nothing but crap. If you write something inconsistent or scientifically implausible and someone asks about it the correct answer is always "a wizard did it."

  8. 400 words typed off your phone.. I don't think i'd have the patience for that haha. It's good your feeling happier; I find that I get myself into daily routines which sustain my happyness but when one of those things gets complicated I almost feel like my day falls apart. I've learned to look past that and just take life on the chin; its called a rollercoaster ride for a reason.

  10. I dislike sleeping at night too and I honestly have no idea why. I just find it easier to sleep during the day. HOW THE HECK did you manage to write 400 words on your phone? Gosh I don't understand how you didn't go loco! :P

  12. i'm very nocturnal myself, probably from working late nights for so many years. but it could also be because being awake at night instead of during the day means there are a lot less people that i have to interact with.

  13. Sleep will always win that battle!

  14. I can relate to that sleep pattern too. I always get really sleepy at 1PM in the afternoon.
