tfw you’re already tired and then you act like an idiot and make yourself even more tired

On Monday last week I was exhausted. The week before had been fairly busy at work, and then of course there’d been uni at the weekend, so I was tired by Monday morning. I could have just worked a normal day in the office, but instead I arrived at 7.45 on Monday morning and left at 1.45am on Tuesday. This is not something I recommend, and it’s not something I do often these days.

Of course this meant I was exhausted for the rest of the week. However I also had quite a nice time. Continue reading “tfw you’re already tired and then you act like an idiot and make yourself even more tired”

Monthly Round-Up: February

Happy March! Normally I do a ceremonial ‘opening of the windows’ ritual at the end of March when spring is beginning, but we’ve had such mild weather here in London recently that I’ve already got them all open despite it only being the end of February. Actually, scrap ‘mild’, it’s been downright warm. It hit 20 degrees the other day. I feel like I’ve been cheated out of winter, but I suppose I can be happy for all the people who like the warmer weather.

Following on from my January round-up, here’s a quick overview of how things have gone in February. Continue reading “Monthly Round-Up: February”

Books of the Week: Logotherapy and Sensitivity

Last week I read three books, which seems to be roughly the average at the moment. Two of them were by Viktor Frankl and the other I’m not yet allowed to name because it won’t be coming out until later in the year. But here’s a brief round-up anyway.

A Short Update

…because it’s 10pm and I’m still in the office. So no ramblings about what I’ve been thinking about over the last seven days; instead, here’s what I’ve been doing. Continue reading “A Short Update”

The Concept of Fog

This morning I forgot the concept of fog and it led to an interesting experience.

I woke up and looked out the window and thought, ‘the clouds look like it might snow’ and then a few minutes later I thought, ‘actually it’s more like the *potential* for snow has drifted downwards and is hanging over the park’ and then I thought ‘no, not the potential for snow, more like a dispersed gaslike coldness made up of very small particles…’ and THEN finally I remembered the concept of fog. 😂

On the basis of this experience I feel like I understand a bit better how people might have seen the world before they understood weather systems.😁

Galentine’s With Village Goleen

I had never been to a supperclub before last Thursday. There are usually Humans there, you see, and I prefer to spend my time at home alone given the choice.

However, I have secretly always harboured a desire to participate in a Galentine’s event.  Continue reading “Galentine’s With Village Goleen”

The Secrets You Hide by Kate Helm

I read this book last week, but it gets its own post instead of being in the weekly book round-up because it was sent to me by the publisher for review. However, this is still a genuine review; I’ve given negative reviews of books I’ve received in the past, so you can trust that if I say I like a book, it means I did.

And I liked this one.  Continue reading “The Secrets You Hide by Kate Helm”
