Tue Review: 9 October 2018
Honestly, why can’t I just hibernate? Not to be warm or miss winter – I love winter! – but I do wish that I could hide from the world at times. To not hear a voice, to not have to talk. I wish could take a long holiday form people-ing.
Okay, I wish I could be a cat. Sleep, eat, ignore people. That’s the dream.
But I can’t cat instead of people, so just as well that my peopleing is with good people and for a good purpose. Exhausting though it may be. My team at work are completely awesome and I love them to bits. My job is a beautiful challenge every day and I smile every day when I first walk down the corridor in the morning. But I do think I’d be able to do my job better with a break. It’s been very demanding lately, and on top of the exhaustion I feel I may veer towards compassion fatigue – not just about work, but about life.
Good thing we’re booked in for a few days in the Lake District soon. Can’t wait! Lake side hotel, breakfast included. Cold air and views of autumn leaves (I think). Other than lakes, I’m not sure what the region is famous for. There’s Beatrix Potter’s Cottage, and I want to go to Derwentwater because I used to have Derwent pencils 🙂 I never knew house to use them properly. No YouTube back then! But now that tutorials are available for anything and everything, maybe I’ll get another set.
Brain: I will complete Tale of Two Cities
in September by the end of the year.
Action: Still not prioritising this enough.
Body: I will get my waist measurement down to less than half my height.
Action: Haven’t measured anything lately.
Soul: I will make a plan for Camp NaNoWriMo in
Action: This is slowly ticking along. The plan is getting more solid. But I need much finer details if I’m meant to have enough guidance to write 1667 words every day for 30 days. I’m not there yet.
