Complicated Noise

I was super sick for the past few days but feel better now. I was just about to haul myself to the emergency department but really didn’t want to have to go into work if that makes sense. It’s so hard for me to go into work and not be able to do anything because I don’t feel well.

Awake at 3:30 am drinking Mountain Dew. What a glamorous life I live. Once J moves here, I’m going back to working during the day (mostly). This bites.

The next two months are going to throw that feeling into hyperdrive. I'll be nostril-deep in study and practice. It will be confronting, but it is totally necessary. I also think it'll be a little fun too. I'm still amazed that I do what I do though. As stressful as it can be, I wouldn't trade it for the biggest, most delicious bowl of mac and cheese.

The way I am feeling is strange. I am physically and mentally tired. I've been thrown into unfamiliar territory at my workplace. It's scary to see and experience all the holes in my knowledge. HOWEVER it shows me what I need to work on or review, so there is that. Some of my underused skills have just gone into a domant state and need to be poked and prodded with a stick.

@thepoliticalcat Australian beaches are usually really nice (especially the ones in the city AND in the summer). This is the worst I’ve seen here.

Back when I lived in Texas (near the coast), I remember being really grossed out by the beaches. I didn't think that I would find something like that in Australia, but I did. This was my little reminder of home.

I did get my rubbish bin to the nature strip this morning so, that's a plus, right? (I haven't been able to get it out to the road for weeks now.)

My sense of smell is very sensitive for the last couple of days which is usually the precursor for some crappy times ahead. My next 10 weeks are going to be absolutely brutal. I'm not looking forward to it at all.

I was looking for food to be delivered because I am saving my burrito supplies for J tomorrow. I couldn’t be bothered. Steaming dumplings now. I can eat my weight in dumplings I’m sure. 🥟

I am quite disgusted by the the use of the term Web3.

No the Web does not need more Crypto and Blockchain. We need to rid the Web of Crypto and Blockchain.

What's on my mind? Indian food. I feel like I need some asap. Husband's heading here tomorrow morning, so I might just wait and get some with him tomorrow. I need some biriyani in my life. Or dosa. Or a good curry with paneer. I must withstand this craving!!!

Did I wish you a happy lunar new year 🧧 to you yet? No? I wish you a ton of happiness and luck in the year of the rabbit!!!

All the spiders decided to move in while I was away. 🕷️

When my husband sleeps and he snores it sounds like someone is kicking a goose. I guess.

New Mac or go without food for 3 years? Tough choice.

The best advice I can possibly give to you today is this: it’s not a good idea to pretend to eat your dog’s food in front of them.

I ate KFC last night so naturally I was up at 3:30 AM with an upset belly and haven’t been able to go back to sleep. Boo. Maybe I shouldn’t be eating that?

I’m in a decent mood, just super sleepy. I am not looking forward to this 40ºC/104ºF day though. I've got soft drinks, green tea, and chocolate in the fridge in preparation.

While I'm asleep, my dreams are really sad and depressing. Everything is also making me sad, especially music. Video game music in particular. Gerudo Valley from Zelda, actually. How? Why? I’m having to give myself a lot of pep talks lately. It works, mostly. My emotions have gone haywire! (Anxiety med withdrawal is not fun.)

It’s nice being looked after instead of looking after other people. Couldn’t sleep last night so drove to see my hubby at 5 am. While I slept, he made me some butter chicken. He’s also aware that I left my anxiety meds at home. I hope I’m not too moody for the next few days. Just planning to take it easy for the next few days - it’ll be a challenge, but I’ll be just fine.
